Wake Me Up Guitar Chords And Lyrics By Derek Ryan. Original song by Avicii. Also recorded As Gaeilge by Vs Lurgan. Written by Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins. Derek plays this one with a capo on the 2nd fret and uses the chords I have given. He's actually playing in Bm. Some people hate playing certain chords such as Bm and instead use a capo to transpose the chords. There are others ways of playing the chords, such as - instead of playing the Am play Bm, and for F play G, and for C play D and for G use A. I have also included the tin whistle notes in sheet and letter form along with the lyrics in Irish / Gaeilge.

[Am]Feeling my [F]way through the[C] darkness
[Am]Guided [F]by a beating [C]heart
I [Am]can't F]tell where the [C]journey will end
But [Am]I [F]know where to [C]start
 
[Am]They tell me [F]I'm too young to [C]understand
They [Am]say I'm [F]caught up in a [C]dream
Well [Am]life will [F]pass me by if I [C]don't open up my eyes
[Am]Well that's [F]fine by[C] me

Chorus
So wake me [Am]up when [F]it's all [C]over[G]
When I'm [Am]wiser F]and I'm [C]old[G]er
All this [Am]time I was [F]finding [C]myself[G]
And I [Am]didn't [F]know I was [C]lo[G]st
So wake me [Am]up when [F]it's all [C]over[G]
When I'm [Am]wiser F]and I'm [C]older[G]
All this [Am]time I was [F]finding [C]myself[G]
And I [Am]didn't [F]know I was [C]lost[G]
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

repeat chorus
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)

"Wake Me Up" as Gaeilge / Irish

Stiofán Ó Fearail ó Seo Linn in éineacht le scoláirí & foireann chúrsa C lena leagan féin de "Wake Me Up" le Avicii.
Chuaigh an t-úafás oibre agus réiteach isteach sa bhfíseán ceoil seo agus tá súil againn go dtaitneoidh sé libh

Fáinne fí i gcoim na hoíche.
(Níl) 'tada riamh nach mbíonn thart.
Diabhail fhios a'm cá bhfuil deireadh mo scéil
Ach táim ar an mbealach ceart.

Deir siad liom gan a dhul sa tseans,
Nach dtagann ciall roimh aois.
Bhuel 'sé m'aistear é, Ní léir cén fhad a mhairfidh sé,
'Sé togha ar aon chaoi.

So Lig mé saor ón suan 'tá orm.
(Tai)speáin 'om bóthar éasca cothrom.
Bainfidh mé ceann scríbe amach, sí m'aidhm,
Cíbe treo átá i ndán.

(Tá) Mé ag iompar úalach mór an tsaoil
Ach níl a'm ach péire lámh.
Suile troma is an ghrian a dhul faoi
Ach ní chodlaíonn mé go sámh.

"Bris amach agus tú fós sach óg."
Chinnigh mé le dul in aghaidh.
Seo mo ré, Seasfaidh mé an fód,
'S leanfaidh mé ar aghaidh.
