Everyone has a dark side, a demon within. While some are quite good at keeping the demon within dormant, others find this quite difficult because the demon within that person easily gets aroused hence there is a constant battle between You and your inner demon.
I am sure your familiar with the song Demons by Imagine Dragons. The cover done by Boyce Avenue with Jennel Garcia is truly mind blowing…
Some of my favorite lyrics from the song are
“When the days are cold / And the cards all fold / And the saints we see / Are all made of gold”
Days are cold simply means that he has no warmth in his life, he thinks that has no one to care about him, he is alone in this world. Even if he has someone to care about him in the present, he is scared that she too might leave him once she knows the truth. Would her feeling for him change if she knows the truths? He has given up the playing the game of live
When your dreams all fail / And the ones we hail / Are the worst of all / And the blood’s run stale
As a person he too had dreams, a vision, a purpose of life that he wants to fulfill. However in achieving these he may have to give up things dearest to him, things which made him happy. The ones that he achieved has not given him the happiness he desired. In fact now the passion of his life no more. A person dies when the blood runs stale. So in simple in the pursuit of making his dreams a reality, he has been successful in some, the ones that hold him back and in doing so he has lost the ones he considered dearest to him. At the moment he has no passion as the driving force in his life.
I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide
He is wants his true nature to remain hidden. He is worried that revealing his dark side will cause problems in his relationship. He does not want her to know but his dark side is strong, no matter how much he tries hide his inner demons, they always emerge. There is absolutely no way that he can hide from his inner demons. His inner demons will always find a way to surface and show itself to the person who he wants to hide it from.
Song revolves around a person with who wants to hide is dark past, but finds it difficult to do so because his dark side is very strong. He is very attached to a girl and does not want her to find out who he really was and what he is capable of doing.
The rest of the song I leave for your imagination…
Close your eyes and listen to the song, the melody and the lyrics..
We all have demons within ourselves, we all have met well concealed demons, may even have fallen in love with one.. Look into your heart and soul..
Let the Demon in You in take it’s course!
