Faded Lyrics

Alan Walker - Faded Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You were the shadow to my light
Did you feel us?
Another star, you fade away
Afraid our aim is out of sight
Wanna see us, alive

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you...

    i think we are all faded, somewhere broken and disconnected from the world. This makes us feel faded, the feeling of getting lost in some other world, with someone. I also wish that my dream world too come true so that i can live in it rather that feeling lost and faded living in the reality.

    I think the song speaks about being lost. You don't know where you were or who you are so you're 'faded'. Away from the truth, from those you love and those you thought you loved.

    She is trying to find her home, or her Atlantis. She wants to know where it is because it is a fantasy like she says.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I always thought it was about a girl trapped between reality and fantasy, she is in love with a boy from her world inside of her mind,and he seduces her to join his world. she feels as if she is fading away from reality. (just my dumb 12 year old interpretation)

    I think that Alan's boyfriend or very close. Friend has disappeared/passed on, and Alan is Is hurting. Good song, but that meaning makes it a kinda sad song.
    So, yeah.

    I think the singers boyfriend is gone like one day he was there with her and the next day he was gone or it could be that they're dating but the singers boyfriend neglects her and when they are in public he treats her like a stranger, blocks her from his social media and when they see each other lets say alone... he acts as if he cares and just asks for a hug and barely feels like kissing her at all but the singer in her mind thinks they have something going on low key but the boyfriend has it all planned out ...like he just wants to use her for something not really sure for what but something so that is why the singer feels faded because she feels that the love she giving to her guy is taken granted and shes lost, under the sea because she doent know what to do..

    the singer has lost her boyfriend. he's taken off or died or moved on, and she's in pain...

    she's in denial... and her mind is going crazy with the "monsters" running wild in her as she tries to figure out why he's gone.
