note*

All the versions on this website (ultimate-guitar) sounds very good, but there is some
important details that I think we're missing.

1) The C-chord with the low G as the base-note (C/G)
2) The Cmaj9-sounding G chord (yeah, I don't get it either)

----------


        -Intro-


Am      F      C/G     C/G   G
Am      F      C/G     C/G   Em 


        -Vers1-


Am         F                C/G       G
Feeling my way through the darkness

Am     F              C/G     Em
Guided by a beating heart

Am       F              C/G            G
I can't tell where the journey will end

Am    F               C/G      Em
But I know where it starts

Am           F       C/G               G
They tell me I'm too young to understand

Am           F               C/G    Em
They say I'm caught up in a dream

Am             F             C/G               G     Am
Well life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes

            F         C/G
Well that's fine by me


        -Aloe Blacc Chorus- (2x)


           Am        F        C/G
So wake me up when it's all over

    G     Am    F        C/G   
When I'm wiser and I'm older

Em         Am         F         C/G
All this time I was finding myself

    G Am     F          C/G      Em
And I didn't know I was lost


        -Avicii Chorus-

Am      F       C/G     C/G   G
Am      F       C/G     C/G   Em


        -Vers2-


Am       F            C/G              G
I tried carrying the weight of the world

Am     F             C/G     Em
But I only have two hands

Am        F                 C/G            G
I hope I get the chance to travel the world

Am          F           C/G    Em
And I don't have any plans

Am          F             C/G             G
I wish that I could stay forever this young

Am     F                C/G    Em
Not afraid to close my eyes

Am        F            C/G      G
Life's a game made for everyone

Am  F          C/G
And love is a prize


        -Aloe Blacc Chorus2- (2x)


           Am        F        C/G
So wake me up when it's all over

    G     Am    F        C/G   
When I'm wiser and I'm older

Em         Am         F         C/G
All this time I was finding myself

    G Am     F          C/G      Em
And I didn't know I was lost


        -Aloe Blacc Bridge-


Am         F         C/G     G
I didn't know I was lost

Am         F         C/G     Em
I didn't know I was lost

Am         F         C/G     G
I didn't know I was lost

Am         F         C/G     Em
I didn't know I was lost


        -Avicii Chorus-

Am      F       C/G     C/G   G
Am      F       C/G     C/G   Em

Love Victor

You've got some really good valid points and they are much appreciated!
Here is what I like, and don't like:

1.No Maj7? I agree. I don't think it matters that much but it sounds better your way.
2.That C/G chord, might be right, might be wrong. I believe it sounds better my way, so im going to keep it.
3.I really don't think an add5 sounds good on the G, sorry.
4.An E at the end of the second bar? What were I thinking? Ofcourse it's an E!

So, the conclusion. Im changing the F chord and will include an E in the intro, verses and chorus.

Thank you so much for your help!

Oh, and bridge is nice! But I won't put it in! It will still be in the comment section if anyone is interested in the melody!
