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

    Great song. Brings you back to life when life is sometimes dragging you down. If you love life, people, and the world, then this song is for you, when you hear nothing on the daily news except wars, hatred, conflict, or this nation is better than other nation, bla. This earth belong to all of us regardless of colour or creed. Make music your religion, and soon you will see how you and others are one belonging to one earth, which is the home of all people. Thanks avicii, and keep your great music flowing.
