New Avicii lyrics appear to link to his personal struggles


Ever since Avicii‘s death earlier this year, there has been a great deal of discussion around the potential release of his unfinished music. According to an article published by Variety, lyrics that recently surfaced seem to relate to Avicii’s own personal struggles. When looking at the lyrics, it is clear to see that they are likely relevant to the Swedish icon’s own life. Lyrics like “we don’t get to die young” stand out clearly as offering a final insight into Avicii’s mind.

It is currently unknown whether this track will ever be released, but it does seem likely that more music from Avicii will be made public eventually. Take a look at the lyrics below.

Crossbows and arrows
The smoke in the shadows
You’ll lose your mind
Standing on the battle line
Starting to choke on
Your heart in your throat and
It feels just like
You can’t remember how to fight

We’ll crack before we shatter
We can’t fall apart
We don’t get to die young
Trouble keeping our head sometimes
We just have to push on
We don’t get to give up this life
All the breath in your lungs
Is stronger than the tears in your eyes
It’s do or die
But we’re alive
And while we’re here
Will hold the line

Don’t hold your hands up
It’s your final stand
Put your white flag down
Oh don’t you surrender now
No hero’s story
There’s no blaze of glory
But dawn only comes
At the end of the night

We’ll crack before we shatter
We can’t fall apart
We don’t get to die young
Trouble keeping our head sometimes
We just have to push on
We don’t get to give up this life
All the breath in your lungs
Is stronger than the tears in your eyes
It’s do or die
But we’re alive
And while we’re here
Will hold the line
