A Song About Living in the Moment

 

“Wake Me Up” – Avicii

Tim Bergling most commonly known by his stage name, Avicii was a DJ and record producer from Sweden. At the age of 16, he landed his first record deal. After that, he quickly became a global sensation in the EDM and electronic genre. Avicii released his hit single “Wake Me Up” in 2013. The song reached the number 1 spot in over 20 countries across the globe and made history by becoming the first song on Spotify to accumulate 200 million streams!  The summer hit is a song about living in the moment. We may be unsure of our futures but we are alive now and have to start living in the present or else life will pass right before our eyes. It’s a song that can resonate with many people no matter which stage of life we are currently in. We should all learn to accept the unknowns of the future and embrace the present.

“…Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes”

Lyrics

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
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 a prize
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
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
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
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
I didn’t know I was lost…
