Wake Me Up by Avicii and Aloe Blacc

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start

They tell me I’m too young to understand
They say I’m caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes
Well that’s fine by me

[2x]
So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don’t have any plans

Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is the prize

[2x]
So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost

Didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know (didn’t know, didn’t know)

Avicii’s version

Aloe Blacc’s version

We all know the song is by Avicii, but who’s actually behind the song, the one who sings the inspirational lyrics?

The first time I heard the song, I was already attracted to the voice and the lyrics. I have never heard of Avicii, so I googled him (google image je sbb just nk tau muka, malas baca info hahah). When I saw his quite jambu face, I didn’t believe that face came in a package with that voice, so I went to Youtube to watch his live performance of this song (masa ni jugak baru tau Levels tu dier jugak, selalu dgr tapi x pernah bother haha). Then, only then I knew, ‘Owh, he’s just the DJ. So, who’s the singer?’, because I was more attracted to the singer of this song when I first listened to it, not the music arrangement.

Let’s give more credit to this talented fella. If you watch Blacc’s version of Wake Me Up video clip, you can see that it is even stronger because some of those people in his video actually experienced their scenes, in real life.
