Alan Walker – Faded lyrics
[Verse 1]
You were the shadow to my light
Did you feel us?
Another star, you fade away
Afraid our aim is out of sight
Wanna see us alight

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Was it all in my fantasy?
Where are you now?
Were you only imaginary
?

[Chorus]
Where are you now?
Atlantis, under the sea, under the sea
Where are you now? Another dream
The monster's running wild inside of me
I'm faded, I'm faded
So lost, I'm faded, I'm faded
So lost, I'm faded


[Verse 2]
These shallow waters never met what I needed
I'm letting go, a deeper dive
Eternal silence of the sea
I'm breathing, alive


[Pre-Chorus 2]
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Under the bright but faded lights
You set my heart on fire
Where are you now?
Where are you now?

[Chorus]
Where are you now?
Atlantis, under the sea, under the sea
Where are you now? Another dream
The monster's running wild inside of me
I'm faded, I'm faded
So lost, I'm faded, I'm faded
So lost, I'm faded

    The singer loves* a person who is depressed°. The singer belongs to a society who's goals are extravagant**. When they call, " where are you now? " she asks what is on his mind, since he is in his mind. She is fighting an internal struggle and lets go and falls, she gives up, perhaps to stop the monster (depression) from being transmitted***
    * It seems like the one she loves didn't notice her, "I'm faded" and her love: "you set my heart on fire."
    ° At first it was the one who the song is written for who was depressed. "You were the shadow to my light"
    ** " afraid OUR aim is out of sight": their goal, perhaps 'fixing' the loved one, may be impossible. Still, they try.
    *** " the monsters running wild inside of me. " depression is 'infecting' so of her mind and perhaps, through self hate, her body. Finally, when she ends with " I'm faded" it shows she is detatching, and pulling away from society and, in a sense, dies.
    I'm sorry I assumed genders, her the different pronouns made it easier.
    Thank you.
