Celeb Spot: 7 of Avicii’s Most Meaningful Lyrics

With the sudden passing of Swedish DJ Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, many artists and fans alike are remembering to savor every moment. Here are some Avicii lyrics that remind us to power through any hardship, to live in the present and appreciate those around you.

Being in the studio for me is being home.

“The Nights”

“One day you’ll leave this world behind, so live a life you will remember.”

This quote is something all people should keep in mind. It is hard to get lost in the stresses and schedules of every day life, especially as college students. At the end of the day, though, our time here is limited, and it is important to remember to live it to the fullest.

“Can’t Catch Me”

“Keep a vision on the one you’ve been chasing. When the time comes we’ll run to the station. We’ve been laced with the powers of creation. So when the sun sets, you bet you must face them. Remember when we were running ‘cross the nation, we were living for the here and now.”

These lyrics remind us to keep our dreams in mind and that we have the power to reach them. We must face our fears, keep our eyes on the end goal and remember to appreciate our road to success.

“Waiting for Love”

“I’m burning like a fire gone wild on Saturday.”

These lyrics isolated from the song as they are here seem to showcase a fierce passion that someone has towards something, such as pursuing a job or describing feelings towards someone. This is a great sentence when someone needs a little bit of motivation to get them going. 

“Lay me Down”

“Make a mess, and don’t forget that life is a dance.”

This is all about letting loose and taking a chance. Life is a piece of art and everyone portrays that in their own way. So don’t worry about making it perfect; simply enjoy it as you want.

“Pure Grinding”

“When I get it, I ain’t ever goin’ back again. One hundred percent, yeah, pure grindin’.”

This is another fantastic motivational line. This is all about giving 100 percent to reach your goal and savoring it once you are there.

“Friend of Mine”

“I wouldn’t be the one I am today if you hadn’t been a friend of mine.”

Friends can have such a huge impact on the person you become. It is important to keep positive people in your life and to acknowledge how these people have impacted you. 

“Sunset Jesus”

“Breathe for a minute”

As mentioned before, it is too easy to get caught up in the stresses of every day life. This line reminds us to stop for a minute, relax and enjoy the moment.

Avicii was just 28 years old when he was found dead in Muscat, Oman. He had retired from performing in 2016, citing multiple health issues including anxiety and acute pancreatitis, which he blamed for excessive drinking. He is regarded as one of the most influential producers of his time.
