[Verse 1: Tomine Harket]
I’m not alone
We share those stories
Just something in your eyes
Don’t be afraid
The shadow’s roaming
Let’s leave the world behind

[Pre-Chorus: Tomine Harket]
Take me through the night
Fall in to the...

    My entire life, I have believed good people would eventually, have good things in life. People who were inconsiderate of others, taking advantage,or,ungrateful, would eventually have less. I am 57. Twice during my life, I should have died, according to the doctors. I believed there was a reason. I had a purpose to fulfill. My entire life has been extremely stressful. I would pick myself up, only to get knocked down. I assumed it was a test of faith. I have noticed,selfish,ungrateful,people, who would take and not care how their actions affected others, seem to be put on a pedestal,have amazing happy lives. I started doubting my beliefs, and begging the universe to help me understand. In two days I will be homeless. I was trying to enjoy the time,and not think about what would happen once I walked outside my home, with nowhere to go. While packing,this song and video came on. I was in disbelief, and had a panic attack. Hearing it made me feel like I was a fool, and being laughed at. Just my personal opinion. If there was ever a time to seize the light, now would be the time. The world, and people, seem strangely chaotic. I wish everyone reading this, peace,love,happiness,and, LIGHT.

    I believe that the song "Darkside" by Alan Walker is about breaking out of your comfort zone (light) and go face your fears (darkside) while you're still young, wild and fearless.

    It feels like a good song but at the end it sad reminds of me when bad times get us it sometimes get better.

    I like the beat and the song but I get bad vibes from it as if there is a deeper meaning behind those lyrics example letting go of light aka goodness and embracing the dark side aka evil um... no thanks. so I won’t be adding this to my playlist.

    Oh,hey :D

    The interpretation are not simple of this song.(And I don’t speak English ;-;)Some people can see some different opinions and interpretation.

    Okay,my opinion,the lyrics are a metaphor.A metaphor of the society or the teenage rebellion.I think like the Anonymous in the top rated.

    But the truth in this song, belong the “World of Walkers” series,the lyrics are connected with the song (I think “Diamond heart” are only not connected to the story)


    In this video,the author told the story of the “World of Walkers”

    I see the song as saying life is not always going to be full of light, so sometimes people have to embrace what they are given; the dark. This isn't to say that the light will not shine on these people and they will forever live in the worst parts of life, but it says the people have to take what is given to them until better things present themselves.

    When I heard this song it kind of related to me when it says "were not in love" meaning they are just friends "we share no stories" they haven't told about themselves or "just something in your eyes" knowing there is something inside of that person they see. When it says "don't wait for truth to come and blind lets just believe their lies" showing that the truth hurts and saying a lie would make it better for them in my opinion I love the song and there is nothing else to it we all have different opinions about the song but this is mine whatever is yours is what you think about it the song is awesome anyway!!!!!

    i think that the song kind is about depression and that the darkside is them giving up on all things good and ready too give up

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think it’s about how society is seen as “light” or deemed acceptable by most people, and anyone that goes against that is seen as an undesirable or “dark” person. The song, to me, is about throwing aside that idea that we need to follow society and to create our own path while we still can, and to try not to drown in the lies and opression that come with society.

    I think it's about somebody who's been through a lot of things and she/he is ready to give up and go to the dark side where they can be carefree.

    I think it talks about following the the dark side(a.k.a) evil. In the world darkness is like satan. And the light is like God. It talks about how our world is today. Following the darkside, going toward satan. Which we shouldn’t do. God is coming soon. And following the darkside(A.k.a) satan is one of the end time prophecy’s.

    I think it’s like tuning out the world and just living it not always trying to smile and fit in it.
