"Whispers in the Dark" as written by John Cooper and Brian Howes....
Despite the lies that you're making
Your love is mine for the taking
My love is
Just waiting
To turn your tears to roses

Despite the lies that you're making
Your love is mine for the taking
My love is
Just waiting
To turn your tears to roses

I will be the one that's gonna hold you
I will be the one that you run to
My love is
A burning, consuming fire

No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes, I'll light the night with stars
Hear the whispers in the dark
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes, you know I'm never far
Hear the whispers in the dark

You feel so lonely and ragged
You lay here broken and naked
My love is
Just waiting
To clothe you in crimson roses

I will be the one that's gonna find you
I will be the one that's gonna guide you
My love is
A burning, consuming fire

No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes, I'll light the night with stars
Hear the whispers in the dark
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes, you know I'm never far
Hear the whispers in the dark

No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes, I'll light the night with stars
Hear the whispers in the dark
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes, you know I'm never far
Hear the whispers in the dark

Whispers in the dark

    General Commentthis song means to me that no matter what we do or where we go ,however wrong it may be(it's still wrong)that God will always love us and take us under his wing. This is tied for my favorite song ever with another song that means the same to me. Skilet is the band that will lead the revolution of christian bands that talk about god 24/7 and truly believe.
    I want to be like them. I like RK but they don't say right out how they feel about God. MAybe it is just because i can read into it but i think that if they talked like true christians(i am in no way saying that they aren't) then they wouldn't be where they are today. TV ,over 12 albums world famous. Now skillet on the other hand is saying how they feel right out. Now i am not proclaming to be a great christian or even good. I am not a model christian in ANY way. this is just what i think about skillet and especially this song. I like what elimy said about Jesus' blood. that makes perfect sense.

    General CommentA very cool song. I think it's about a strong love for a person you want to save from despair and loneliness. Kinda like what I'd like to do for my ex-girlfriend who's going through this the same way as I am after we broke up. I like the part "My love is just waiting, to turn your tears to roses,"

    General Commenti love this song so much, it nearly made me cry when i first heard it.. as others have said i do believe it is about someone, whether it be a bf, gf, or God who really cares about this other person and wants to help them
    "Despite the lies that you're makin
    Your love is mine for the taking
    My love is just waiting
    To turn your tears to roses"
    i think this particular line is very important to the song and is saying that they know the one they care about is lying about being ok or fine or whatever (as lots of people do even when they arent) and they want to help, but cant till the other stops lying, but when they do stop lying, they'll be there to help take the hurt away with their love. very beautiful...
    p.s "When darkness comes
    I'll light the night with stars" my favourite line in the whole song
    happy listening :)

    General CommentThis song is about god as they are Christians...and the chorus relates to John 8:12 in the bible I think..also I believe he says "know you'll never be alone when darkness comes you know im never far hear my whispers in the dark" but like most songs it could be your own interpretation thats why they are made

    Song FactJohn Cooper: "Whispers In The Dark was just about feeling alone. There's a lot about loneliness on this album because when I look around our world with all the things that's happened with violence and wars and.. then natural disasters that have been happening, all the people that are feeling alone and feeling that they're going through all these things themselves and they don't have anybody to lean on. So I wrote a lot about loneliness and Whispers In The Dark is about, basically, when you do feel alone and you look around and there isn't anyone around and you think, 'That's it, nobody's there,' it's a song saying I will be there - you may not see Me all the time, but I am gonna be there. That was a very spiritual song in its intent that could be God talking to a person saying, 'It might seem like you're alone during all these hard times, but you're not.'"
