Wake Me Up – Avicii

I wanted it to be a rumour, I prayed that it’s a bloody rumour
sadly, it’s so cold, so true, so unexpected.

News of your passing leaves a huge lump in my throat
unbidden tears flow as I listen to your beats over and over

I love your music more than I can say, the sadness in my soul feels brittle
How is it that I love someone that I’ve never met this much?

Avicii, your lyrics spoke to me on a deep level
I looked forward to a day I would go to your concert

Alas! Your show has become one that I’ll never attend.
Hey brother!  Though you never grew to be older, you were older than your years.

Rest In Peace Avicii and May Perpetual Light Shine On You.

  1. Grea tribute! I loved his music too. Such a talented DJ and performer, knew the right voices to choose for his songs, and how to compose. Very gifted and a sad loss for one so young!

      1. I know what you mean. Me too. He was very talented I think at reaching people of all ages and music tastes. I think about half my ringtone songs were his. Hugs, have a good weekend.
