Verse 1
This ain't the first or last time
We'll meet up this late at night
To let our fate intertwine
Casually I'd rather be
Detach from all tragedy
This don't need to be defined

Pre-Chorus
And I know that it's wrong
I do I do
Baby keep holding on
I do I do
Yeah, I know that it's wrong
I do
When the sun comes up, I'll be gone

Chorus
I only know him in the dark
I only know him in the dark

Verse 2
Try to stay desensitized
Keep my feelings out of mind
My body won't be denied
Never took this road before
Love was always at the core
Of anyone I've been with before

Pre-Chorus
And I know that it's wrong
I do I do
Baby keep holding on
I do
Yeah, I know that it's wrong
I do
When the sun comes up, I'll be gone
Chorus
I only know him in the dark
I only know him in the dark

Bridge
Shadows across your face
Your lips a familiar taste
Stay focused, I tried
Can't get this out of my mind
I want more than what this is
Whatever we're calling this
The truth just breaks my heart

Chorus (x2)
I only know him in the dark
I only know him in the dark

I only know him in the dark
I only know him in the dark

    My InterpretationI was moved by the way the song was visually presented in the Official Music Video for this song. Yes, the song is primarily about a girl who is in a relationship with a guy just for physical gratification. But when you look beneath the surface, you can see several underlying unsettling issues faced by the girl. The most primal one is that she knows what she is doing is wrong but can't seem to stop herself. Moreover, she is emotionally getting attached to the guy while trying to remain fixed on the fact that he will never be truly only hers. The lyrics are so poignant and indicates the intense pain of the girl, the loss, the helplessness, the desperation and the love felt by her.

    Song MeaningHeard this song for first time, and I love it!

    I think this song is about this girl that is having a sexual relationship with a guy, and she knows it’s not right because they only see each other “in the dark”. She tries not to think about it, but then later on she realizes that she needs more then just a physical relationship, It’s missing the most important thing which is love. :)

    What do you guys think?
