Wash All Over Me



Lyrics

In a world that's changing
I'm a stranger
In a strange land
There's a contradiction
And I'm stuck here in between

Life is like a desert
An oasis
To confuse me
So I walk this razor's edge
Will I stand or will I fall?

Turn a blind eye
Try to pretend that nothing is what it seems
Torn between the impulse to stay or
Running away from all this madness

Who am I to decide what should be done
If this is the end then let it come
Let it come, let it rain
Rain all over me
Like the tide, let it flow
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me

All of my illusions
Could be shattered in a second
You can thread a needle
With a teardrop from my eye

It's a cruel injustice
To be witness
To the things I see
Looking for the answer
When it's right in front of me

From the tower of Babylon
Where nothing is what it seems
Gonna watch the sun going down
I'm not gonna run from all this sadness

Who am I to decide what should be done
If this is the end then let it come
Let it come, let it rain
Rain all over me
Like the tide, let it flow
Let it wash all over me

Who am I to decide what should be done
If this is the end then let it come
Let it come, let it rain
Rain all over me

Like the tide, let it flow
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me

Song

This song leaked online in November 2014 in a few different versions, including an acoustic piano version. The final version strays away from Avicii's typical EDM sound. Avicii later said in an interview that he thought his demo was better than the final track.
