Learn English with Music: Wake Me Up- Avicii

 Listen to the song, ‘Wake Me Up’ by Avicii and read or sing the lyrics as your go. You may want to listen to it more than once to ensure that you understand the lyrics (words) of the song. 

 

Lyrics to “Wake Me Up” by Aviccii

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)

 

Vocabulary Words: 

1. Wiser means having more knowledge, experience 

2. Finding myself (oneself) means to sort through the things you know and take your own personal stance on life and issues based on your prior convictions and influences. You come to terms with who you are as an individual. 

Have you have felt lost and as if you didn’t belong?
