Passing by you light up my darkest skies
You'll take only seconds to draw me in
So be mine and your innocence I will consume

Dark shines
Bringing me down
Making my heart feel sore
Because it's good

Hold your hands up to your eyes again
Hide from the scary scenes, suppress your fears
So be mine and your innocence I will consume

Dark shines
Bringing me down
Making my heart feel sore
Because it's good
You're dark shines
Bringing me down
Making my heart feel sore
Because it's good

Dark shines
Bringing me down
Making my heart feel sore
Because it's good

    General CommentIts about a guy who likes a girl because she represents to him something good and pure and wholesome, but then he views himself as all dark and twisted. he is drawn to her goodness, but he knows that if he gets closer to her his presence will defile her. and yet he cant help but be drawn in. it reminds me a little of Valmont from dangerous liasons.

    or it could be the opposite...

    but then "dark shines" is the lure of the girl who lights up his "darkest skies" meaning she brings out his darkest desires. like the sort of person that makes you desire them in an evil way? Like some girls have this quality. they look all innocent and child-like, but they are at the same time alluring and... naughty. like natalie portman's character in closer..

    i like how the song is interpretable in two different ways. I think it shows how the singers world gets all mixed up by his desires. i like the vampire comparisons. i like also how in his psychology it is unclear who is the predator and who is the prey. who is luring who in..
