Wake Me Up – Avicii

I have a strange craving for what I call club music. Songs that can’t be listened to quietly, songs that need to be felt on the skin, your heartbeat jumping in the rhythm of the bass. Songs that made popping head involuntary. And sometimes, rarely, when these kinds of songs get really good, it makes my soul soar. Wake Me Up by Avicii is one of those songs.

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

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

So wake me up when it’s all over…

Didn’t know I was lost…

***

“Get up, pack your things.”
“Where are we going?”
“Somewhere where we belong.”
