"In The Dark" as written by Tijs Verwest, Dennis Waakop Reijers-fraaij-fraaij and Christian Burns....
When it seems
Like the world around you's breaking
And it feels
Like there's no one else around you
And it's quiet
There's a silence in the darkness
And it sounds
Like the carnival is over

As you walk
In the crowded empty spaces
And you stare
At the emptiness around you
You wanna go
To the city and the bright lights
Get away
From the sinners that surround you

Cause I will be there
And you will be there
We'll find each other in the dark
And you will see
And I'll see you too
Cause we'll be together in the dark

Cause if it's coming for you
Then it's coming for me
Cause I will be there
Cause we need each other in the dark
And if it terrifies you
Then it terrifies me
Cause I will be there
So we've got each other in the dark

As I look into the sky
There's sparks bright as ice
You want me to take you over there
I want you to stay with me
Cuz you're not the only one
The only one

No, no
Don't worry
You're not the only one

Cause if it's coming for you
Then it's coming for me
But I will be there
Cuz we need each other in the dark
And if it's panicking you
Then it's panicking me
But I will be there
So we've got each other in the dark

In the dark
In the dark
We'll need each other in the dark

In the dark
In the dark
We'll hold each other in the dark

Now we're saved together in the dark

Cause we've got each other in the dark

    General Commenti think it means that when you get into a dark period in your life you lose your friends, and he's still there for you

    General Commenttiesto is one of the most famous an best dj's ever, and these beautiful lyrics have a beautiful voice singing them, but I like davmans comment, darkness normaly represents being alone and sad or other hands rave, but its not always dark at raves x) but what I was saying love is a crazy thing an you can do anything with it just dont throw it away! you need it!

    General Commenti always got the sense of forbbiden love from there. Two people who have each other in the Dark kind of in a secret way. To me it's a dark love song. I can't believe a lot of fans didn't like this song. I think it's one of his best. GOD i'd love to dance to this song at a party.

    General CommentAs u walk in the crowded empty spaces
    And u stare at the emptiness around u...
    Great song... probably second best of Tiesto after Adagio.
    Its about feeling alone with "her"
    Its the cold world (empty,dark) against both of us babe
    The type of thing

    General CommentI personally like to think of zombies when i listen to this song.

    Empty spaces, dark streets, go to the city with the bright lights, Coming for you and coming for me, Panicking you and Panicking me. We'll need eachother....

    I know it has nothing to do with zombies, but its fun to play with Left 4 Dead or Dead Rising.

    General CommentYou may think that the song tells about two people who are going to kill themselves together...
    But I personally do believe that the song tells about two very best friends. The other one has difficult time in her/his life and her/his friend tries to help by saying that she/he would always be there, even if life will be really "dark".
    I think the song cannot tell about two lovers because of the line "Cuz you're not the only one". That is something you say only to a friend... IMO

    General Comment"as you walk through the crowded empty spaces, and you stare at the emptiness around you, you wanna go to this city & the bright lights, get away from the sinners that surround you." This verse and the first few sentences of the song (at least to me) relate to the "comedown" effects of being on ecstacy. You feel pretty zombified and un-apart of what ever is going on. Also when it says "And it feels like the carnival is over" Implies that maybe the person is coming down and doesnt feel like raving anymore so to them it feels like the rave is over.
