Not only is it one of the biggest songs of the last decade, but even without that, it's simply 😏 an awesome song. One challenge for us was how to convey the energy that Avicii's recording has. We don’t know about you all, but we always felt like this song had a kind of country, fiddle, grassroots feeling to it, despite all of the DJ/electronic sounds you hear. So we decided to give it even more of a country feel and really play this song in a fiddle style. Maybe it's the slap-bass Nick does, or the fiddle chords Zack plays - or maybe it's just playing the song on our string instruments that gives it the country feel. Either way, this arrangement of ours has hit the hearts of people all over the world, and we couldn't be more grateful. This is our most viewed music video, and for a long time we didn’t really know why. I don’t think we still know fully, honestly, but many people have told us that the happiness of the song and the beauty of the location makes this video energetic, happy, and beautiful. We filmed it at Saguaro Lake (Butcher Jones Recreation Site to be exact) in Arizona. We have been going to this lake for fun outings our entire lives. Many fond memories have been gained here, and it was awesome to shoot this life-changing video here! Thanks for all your incredible support. THE VIDEO Directed by Zack Clark and Nicholas Villalobos. Cinematography by Ovi Balc at Mindmaze Productions (http://mindmaze.net). DJI Phantom 2 (w/ GoPro 3) drone controlled by Ryan MacKenzie (http://shotbyryan.com). Edited and color graded by Zack Clark.

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

I hope I get the chance to travel the world

But I don't have any plans

I 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

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 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 didn't know I was lost
