Ohhh

There's a place
That I know
It's not pretty there and few have ever gone
And if I show it to you now
Will it make you run away
Will you stay even if it hurts
Even if I try to push you out will you return
And remind me who I really am
Please remind me who I really am

[Chorus]
Everybodys got a dark side
Do you love me
Can you love mine
Nobodys a picture perfect
But were worth it
You know that were worth it

Will you love me
Even with my dark side
Like a diamond from black dust
It's hard to know I can become if you give up
So don't give up on me
Please remind me who I really am

[Chorus]
Everybodys got a dark side
Do you love me
Can you love mine
Nobodys a picture perfect
But were worth it
You know that were worth it

Will you love me
Even with my dark side

Don't run away, don't run away
Just tell me that you will stay
Promise me you will stay
Yeaah yeaah
Don't run away, don't run away
Just promise me you will stay, promise me you will stay

Will you love me?
With my dark side

[Chorus]
Everybodys got a dark side
Do you love me
Can you love mine
Nobodys a picture perfect
But were worth it
You know that were worth it

Will you love me
Even with my dark side

Don't run away, don't run away

    Its about someone asking their lover if they will stay with them even when times are too rough to explain... This is my absolute favorite kelly clarkson song in the world! :d

    It is pretty easy to see. Someone is in love with another and is afraid that they are going to lose them. ... Crying out for their love to never leave...

    I think this song is about anyone who suffers from depression, self harm, or an eating disorder. They need someone to know, to help them out. They are scared of themselves. Its a call for help to get better. As someone who struggles with two of the three things above, i fell in love with this song, because i recently (finally) asked for help. Such an amazing song

    I can relate to.it shows that nobody is perfect in this world and accept me as i am,flaws and all included and remind the person who they really are when their dark side appears and not to give up on them/the relationship no matter how bad it gets

    I think dark side has to be about being a cutter. A dark secret get it? Can u love mine? Like it means can u love me even thouh i cut.
