Not my usual style, but I recently heard a song on the radio where the lyrics really stood out to me, and a pop song no less! It’s unusual I hear new songs that have any kind of effect, but this has a very different feel to it than most of the ‘pop’ that’s out there these days:
I can’t tell where the journey will end, but I know where to start… You tell me I’m too young to understand, they say I’m caught up in a dream, life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes, well that’s fine by me. 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…
(Wake Me Up by Aloe Blacc)
Pop song it may be, but life will pass us by if we struggle through it with our eyes closed. Don’t be woken up when it’s all over, live it now! It’s a gentle reminder to open our eyes to what’s around us, and enjoy it!
