The dark side's callin' now
Nothin' is real
She'll never know just how I feel
From out of the shadows
She walks like a dream
Makes me feel crazy
Makes me feel so mean

Ain't nothin' gonna save you
From a love that's blind
You slip to the dark side
Across that line
On the dark side, oh yeah
On the dark side, oh yeah

The dark side's callin' now
Nothin' is real
She'll never know just how I feel
From out of the shadows
She walks like a dream
Makes me feel crazy
Makes me feel so mean

Ain't nothin' gonna save you
From a love that's blind
You slip to the dark side
Across that line
On the dark side, oh yeah
On the dark side, oh yeah

[Instrumental Interlude]

Ain't nothin' gonna save you
From a love that's blind
You slip to the dark side
Across that line
On the dark side, oh yeah
On the dark side, oh yeah
On the dark side, oh yeah
On the dark side, ooooooh yeah

    I think that its about a strong love connection between two people. The man, singing, would do anything, even turn to the dark side for his love and nothing is real because in this love thats all he sees. Nothing else matters and theres no turning back when you love someone this much.

    I think it's like a tree in the daytime. On one side is sun and on the other is shade and the girl in the song is the tree and the guy is going from the sunny side to the shadow.

    Fear of the commitment that being in love requires. Step into the dark side as in take the chance and move forward to all that is forbidden to your heart- bluedog f. A.

    It is the crazy things you do when you love someone who does not even know that you exist. Think stalker.
