Wake Me Up

Lyrics

playFeeling my way through the darkness
playGuided by a beating heart
playI can't tell where the journey will end
playBut I know where it starts
playThey tell me I'm too young to understand
playThey say I'm caught up in a dream
playWell life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes
playWell that's fine by me

playSo wake me up when it's all over
playWhen I'm wiser and I'm older
playAll this time I was finding myself
playAnd I didn't know I was lost

playSo wake me up when it's all over
playWhen I'm wiser and I'm older
playAll this time I was finding myself
playAnd I didn't know I was lost

playI tried carrying the weight of the world
playBut I only have two hands
playI hope I get the chance to travel the world
playBut I don't have any plans
playI wish that I could stay forever this young
playNot afraid to close my eyes
playLife's a game made for everyone
playAnd love is a prize

playSo wake me up when it's all over
playWhen I'm wiser and I'm older
playAll this time I was finding myself
playAnd I didn't know I was lost

playSo wake me up when it's all over
playWhen I'm wiser and I'm older
playAll this time I was finding myself
playAnd I didn't know I was lost

playI didn't know I was lost
playI didn't know I was lost
playI didn't know I was lost
playI didn't know I was lost

Aloe Blacc, who is not accredited in the title of the single, explained to The Huffington Post:

"I started writing the lyrics in the first part of 2013, returning from a trip through Switzerland. I started hip hop music in the' 90s and I never expected to sing and have a real career as a musician, but now that I'm traveling around the world I thought:' Life is a dream, wake me up when it's all over'.
