Imagine Dragons - Darkness Lyrics




I can never leave you when you're lying in the bed
Face to the wall
Eyes locked on the floor
What did you mean by that
What did you mean by that
Take it as a self invitation
Take it as your own means of salvation
If I could take it all
If I could take it all back

Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
And if it's too late for deciding
Oh just leave it to me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me please
Cause I'm living, living
Living in the darkness

I could never beat it when you needed me the most
The more I try the less you try to come
How could I live like that
How could I live like that

Take it as a self indication
Take it as your own means of vindication
If I could take it all
If I could take it all back

Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
And if it's too late for deciding
Oh just leave it to me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me please
Cause I'm living, living
Living in the darkness

Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
It's too late for deciding
Oh just leave it to me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me please
Cause I'm living, living
Living in the darkness

Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
Oh it is too late for deciding
So just leave it to me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me please
Cause I'm living, living
Living in the darkness
Living in the darkness
Please
Living in the darkness

    [Verse 1]
    I can never leave you when you're lying in the bed
    Face to the wall
    Eyes locked on the floor
    What did you mean by that, what did you mean by that?
    Take it as a self invitation
    Take it as your own means of salvation
    If I could take it all
    If I could take it all back

    [Chorus]
    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
    And if it's too late for deciding
    Oh, just leave it to me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me please
    Because I'm living, living
    Living in the darkness

    [Verse 2]
    I could never beat it when you needed me the most
    The more I try the less you try to come
    How could I live like that, how could I live like that?
    Take it as a self indication
    Take it as your own means of vindication
    If I could take it all
    If I could take it all back

    [Chorus]
    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
    And if it's too late for deciding
    Oh, just leave it to me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me please
    Because I'm living, living
    Living in the darkness

    [Chorus]
    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
    It's too late for deciding
    So just leave it to me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me please
    Because I'm living, living
    Living in the darkness

    [Chorus]
    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
    Oh, it is too late for deciding
    So just leave it to me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me, stay with me
    Stay with me please
    Because I'm living, living
    Living in the darkness

    [Outro]
    Living in the darkness
    Please
    Living, living in the darkness

  10. achraf popstickle

    Well new fans will never get this feeling ❤

  11. Борис Борисов

    Песня чисто без мантожа

  12. Imperial Bagel

    6 years ago was there no such thing as a reply? I see people talking to each other in different comments. Most are out of order. It’s confusing.

    johaita4679

    yeah that was weird xD

  13. Stephan Larson

    Wow their original classic sounding indie music is something else. Really shows their Christian Roots, full of hope and redemption.

  14. Jung sucaritas Kook

    Wow, cómo pasa el tiempo. Esta canción la descubrí hace ya muchos meses y en ese entonces me encontraba pasando por una decepción amorosa que me pego muy fuerte, y esta canción calló como anillo al dedo, me sentía horrible... Y ahora después de un buen rato, vuelvo a escucharla, el dolor de esa relación fallida ya pasó y todo ha cambiado, pero uf, viejos tiempos, que excelente canción.

  15. Hawkeye }

    Ben is looking so hot here 🤩

  16. achraf popstickle

    Stay with me stay with me, why there is no studio version of this masterpiece 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  17. dadamus deedz

  18. Asha -Król lew 4

    It's super song, it's my favorite song

  19. Bonnie Hunt

    I've never ueard this one! This is beautiful! Why did the girl not stay in the band?

    Stephan Larson

    The brother and sister left when Imagine Dragons went mainstream. They were more conservative and didn't like the limelight. The original Imagine Dragons was so Indie and classic.

    johaita4679

    @Stephan Larson If you meant Tolmans, they are a husband and a wife. And in this video it is Theresa Flaminio. To the rest of the facts I'm not sure xD

  20. WriterLifer

    and then you get digital XD completely different song but both awesome!

  21. oi oi

    this video is my favorite

  22. Jung sucaritas Kook

    Amo esta canción

  30. knowledge and entertaiment

    Great song man!! It's worth to be played lived on stage

  31. Tamara

    This is cool, the old band

  32. a hazwan

    Idk how this song is so underrated

  33. Sarah S

    One thing i feel like mentioning: I know Brittany's voice and Theresa's, so in My Fault that's probably Theresa singing backup, but I know Brittany's voice really well and I'm pretty sure she's the backup for Demons... (they were probably starting to record Night Visions before the Tolmans left) also I listened to this... like a year ago XD at on point I was overly obsessed with the song, but I gotta admit this isn't my favorite of theirs (I LVOE ALL THEIR SONGS THOUGH) DOLPHINSSSSSSSS I WISH YOU WELLLLLLLLL UNKNOWN SONG NAMEEEE XDDDD

    johaita4679

    maybe do you know who's the backup voice in Cover up? cause I'm confused xD

  34. Cata Sánchez

    1:19 ♡w♡

  35. Lindy Vaughn

    I can never leave you when you're lying in the bed
    Face to the wall
    Eyes locked on the floor
    What did you mean by that
    What did you mean by that
    Take it as a self invitation
    Take it as your own means of salvation
    If I could take it all
    If I could take it all back

    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
    And if it's too late for deciding
    Oh just leave it to me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me please
    Cause I'm living, living
    Living in the darkness

    I could never beat it when you needed me the most
    The more I try the less you try to come
    How could I live like that
    How could I live like that

    Take it as a self indication
    Take it as your own means of vindication
    If I could take it all
    If I could take it all back

    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
    And if it's too late for deciding
    Oh just leave it to me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me

    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me please
    Cause I'm living, living
    Living in the darkness

    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
    Oh it is too late for deciding
    So just leave it to me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me
    Stay with me please
    Cause I'm living, living
    Living in the darkness
    Living in the darkness
    Please
    Living in the darkness

  50. SethMacMillan

    Holy hell. Why is this not on Night Visions? This is an incredible song! They need to revive piece of brilliance.

  51. Bambang Wisanggeni

    Damn Im just digging into their old songs and I can't find any single song that's not great on its own, how could they do this kind of magic??

  52. marines 84

    cadê os br?

  53. Muhammmet Filiz

    anlamını bilmediğim en içten şarkı sensin

  54. beyza solmaz

    platzman lookin so good

  55. Sofia Nicole Garcia

    Platzman so hot... Hihihi

  56. José Augusto

    I LOVE THIS SONG

  57. Shans

    Correct me if I'm wrong but this is my interpretation of the song, AND PLEASE I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW YOUR INTERPRETATIONS!!

    I feel like it's an accompanying song to Demons. It's about someone being in a relationship and trying to fight their inner conflicts or demons as others might phrase. They're both in pain because of their intense empathy and love (?) for each other since the other has problems with themselves. The one having mental issues is begging the other to just bear with them because it isn't their fault anyway, they suffer from (probably) some kind of mental illness, and they wish they could take back all the pain that they inflicted upon the other person. It's kind of the same story as Think You Can Wait by The National. Both beautiful songs.

  58. Nathaniel Blair

    beautiful song

  59. Christian Heaps

    Who's the walking Ray-Ban advertisement?

  60. Ademir Laura

    I'm gonna be fine...

  61. Sebastian Rodriguez

    I find it interesting how Platz replaced Andrew in this before he was part of the band and before Brit and Andrew left yet Brit was still there.

    Jakoda

    +Sebastian Rodriguez the girl is Theresa Flaminio...

  62. Fátima Jazynka

    I love it.

  63. Mountain Marker

    I love this song but I feel like there's just one "Stay with me" too many.

  64. Stan SF9 you cowards

    I need the full version of this Audio Files thing, they performed Clouds and Dolphin I believe

    Claudio Leonel Piacquadio

    dolphin?! I've been listening to them for 2 years, I know all of their songs but I never heard of that one.. where can I find it??

    Stan SF9 you cowards

    There's only a 30 second or something audio of it in YouTube.

  65. Taquito de buche:v

    this is one of my favorite songs from my favorite band and i cant have it, why mad world:'v

  66. Spectre Gamer

  68. David Gulland

    Whoever filmed this, thank you SO much! This is great! I knew they probably had older songs but I never could find any until I found this!

  69. Uncreative username

    This sounds awesome without studio.

    Aristotle

    Hell and Silence I can fight it, I can fight it.

    Fabulous Killjoy

  70. RebornPheonix15

    This is like the lost imagine Dragons song. It needs some time in the line light.

    Emily Vasquez

    RebornPheonix15 it's trapped in the darkness

  71. Shelly Prytherch

    Love them!!!!!

  72. sn3k

    So, as far as I know,you can't buy this song, but, if you look on Soundcloud I'm sure you'll be able to find it. I've been looking and I haven't found it yet, but many of their lesser-known songs are here, so I just need to dig deeper.

    Demitries McCaskill

    sn3k if you go on mp3juices.cc you'll be able to download the audio of the video. just type in the video name or something related, it works with all videos on YouTube's

    Cameron Meetze

    Demitries McCaskill but you can’t have it on your phone

    Bashelow

    Cameron Meetze use YouTube to MP3 converter and send it to Dropbox( app)

  73. Linda Gutierrez

    they've gotten so far

  74. Komodo Dragoness

    Okay, so I'm confused. At the line that comes right after it says "Face to the wall", is it saying "I slept on the floor" or "Eyes locked on the floor"?

    Lauren

    It's eyes locked on the floor

    Komodo Dragoness

    Thank you!

  75. Alaina L

    The guitar. The clicking against the wood. It makes me feel at peace.

    This band will always be my favorite.

    <3

  76. Douglas Trindade

    Caraca música muito boa msm quero essa música pra min.....nn sei si essa música já entrou em algum CD di vcs mais si nn entrou vcs precisam colocar ela no próximo CD de vcs vai ser sucesso garanto música ótima essa

  77. Mariana Nogueira Santos

  78. Krag Jørgensen

    Darkness and Lost Cause should've been on their newest album...

  79. T ,

    george boukarim

    Tori

    Mantis Shrimp

    I think he was trying to create a flame war or something

    Maia Maggie

    👏fuckin idiot

    Sebastian Rodriguez

    Go away you don't deserve a flame war you don't even know the genre. Seriously you can try but all you'll do is sound like an imbucile

  80. Blake Robinson

    A song for a future album maybe?????????

    Alaina L

    Blake Robinson I hope

  81. Alyssa Ballesteros

    The girl is Theresa Flaminio, right?

    alone redrover

    Awwww I love Dan's little slur!

  84. Breeyn Knorr

    This song should be heard and played more!

  85. Luisa Boy

    just.. perfection ✨😌

  86. Christian Sepulveda

    where i can fine the real chord ? some help pz :3 

  87. EMILY DRAGXN

    Alternative music means it can be one genre mixed with another!!! So technically they can be both if they say they are alternative and indie rock!!!

  88. EMILY DRAGXN

    Brittany and Andrew Tolman were great but I'm glad they quit the band because then they wouldn't have Daniel platzman as their drummer and I would only have 3 lovely guys in my life!

  89. Rachelle Espenilla

    REAL MUSIC <3

  90. Daniele Borghi

    Alternative rock IS NOT indie rock!!!

    j.m.

    Definitely is not but some of the new songs include both. The new song I bet My Life is for example a folk song.

    bowman hath

    @j.m. I Bet my Life is kinda country and western

  91. Paul Davila

    …not poets, but philosophers. great lyrics. theses guys, at 40, or 50, imagine --. imagine dragons, yees

    Marja Boekhout

    They are much younger than 40/50 !!!!

    Paul Davila

    Yeah, I know. But imagine those dragons being 50, the wisdom, the music baby

  92. King Hummus the Great

    They have an acoustic bass?!

  93. trapl0rdron

    Does anyone else hear twinkle, twinkle, little star?

    I could never leave you when you lie in the bed,
    Face to the wall, I slept on the floor
    What do you mean by that? What do you mean by that?
    Take it as a self invitation,
    Take it as your own means of salvation,
    If I could take it all, if I could take it all back-
    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be
    And if its too late for deciding oh just leave it to me,
    Stay with me Stay with me Stay with me
    Stay with me Stay with me, Please,
    Cause im living, living, living in the Darkness

    I could never beat you when you needed me the most
    The more I try, the less you, try to come,
    How could I live like that, how could I live like that?
    Take it as your self indication
    Take it as your own means of vindication
    If I could take it all, if I could take it all back-

    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be,
    And if its too late for deciding oh just leave it lo me
    Stay with me Stay with me Stay with me
    Stay with Stay with me, Please,
    Cause im living, living, living in the Darkness

    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be,
    Its too late for deciding so just leave it lo me
    Stay with me Stay with me Stay with me
    Stay with Stay with me, Please,
    Cause im living, living, living in the Darkness

    Nothing is forgiven unless you want it to be,
    Ooh it is too late for deciding so just leave it lo me
    Stay with me Stay with me Stay with me
    Stay with Stay with me, Please,
    Cause im living, living, living in the Darkness

    Living in the Darkness...

    Please...
    Living, living in the Darkness

    ;)

    Vincent Rose

    First: Eyes locked on the floor, not "I slept on the floor"Second: I could never beat IT, not "I could never beat"
    Also: The less you try to COPE, not "less you try to come" [it's a song about depression]
    Finally: The last chorus, the band still sings "If it's to".

    oioioioo tube

    +Vincent Rose Too*. Good job though, everything you said was lyrically correct.

    Vincent Rose

    @***** Probably not. Actually, no.

    Vincent Rose

    @***** do you mean "a.m. hearing lying in the bed"? or "i'm hearing lying in the bed"

  95. Jae Lykken

    where can I buy this song?

    Ece Kasapoglu

    If you have a Skype account, I can send this song to you. 

  96. Michael Mullins

    Could someone please put the lyrics in a comment so we can know it. Thanks!
