AVICII WAKE ME UP

This song is so awesome I just had to learn it so hear is my version of the song. 
I will do the original version then and easier one I figured out myself.

Original Version

Intro

Bm G D A Bm G D A

Verse 2

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

Chorus 1

            Bm      G        D       A
 So wake me up when it's all over
          Bm    G       D        A
 When I'm wiser and I'm older
          Bm         G         D       A
 All this time I was finding myself
       Bm          G     D        A
 And I didn't know I was lost
            Bm      G        D        A
 So wake me up when it's all over
          Bm    G       D        A
 When I'm wiser and I'm older
          Bm         G         D        A
 All this time I was finding myself
       Bm          G     D       A
 And I didn't know I was lost

Verse 2 (same as verse 1)

 I tried carrying the weight of the world
 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

Chorus 2 (same as chorus 1)

 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

Outro   

   Bm          G     D       A        
 I didn't know I was lost
   Bm          G     D       A        
 I didn't know I was lost
   Bm          G     D       A        
 I didn't know I was lost
   Bm          G     D       A        
 I didn't know I was lost
 

If you want to play the easier version all you do is put a capo on 2nd fret and 
switch the chords like this:

Bm becomes Am
G becomes F
D becomes C
A becomes G

This chord sequence is very popular today and I did this for people who cant play 
the Bm barre chord.

I hope you enjoyed my tab and if you want me to tab any songs for you leave them

THANK YOU!

GOOD JOB BUT, MUST HAVE A CAPO AT THE 2ND FRET. MAKES CHORD CHANGES EASIER AND FASTER. THIS SONG HAS A KILLER FAST RHYTHM...RHYTHM IS THE KEY TO MAKING IT SOUND RIGHT...

Am (002210)
F (X3321X)
C (032010)
E (022100)
G(add5) (320033)

Intro and Chorus

Am F C G
Am F C E...repeat
