Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up

Singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc’s affecting voice, perceptive lyrics, and dapper sartorial flair are already familiar to music lovers in Europe. In 2010, his international Top 10, platinum-selling single “I Need A Dollar” surged across the continent, ringing out from the streets of Paris to the soul clubs of London, combining social consciousness with irresistible pop. Throughout 2011, Blacc and his touring band, The Grand Scheme, hit the road in support of Blacc’s second solo album and international breakthrough Good Things; turning in memorable sets at iconic festivals like Montreux Jazz in Switzerland and Glastonbury in the UK. Blacc performed “I Need A Dollar” on the French TV programs Taratata and Le Grand Journal, as well as the influential British music show Later…with Jools Holland; spurring the track to become the de facto anthem to the post-Great Recession recovery. “Everyone has a relationship with money and can understand the experience of needing a dollar,” Blacc says of the song’s appeal. “I’m really interested in creating music that can influence positive social change,” he adds.

Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up

Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up 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 it starts
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
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
But I only have two hands
I hope I get the chance to travel the world
And 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 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 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 didn’t know I didn’t know …
