Wake Me Up by Avicii is featured in The Back-Up Plan, the eighteenth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Rachel.

This performance is set during a myriad of Rachel's Funny Girl performances. It shows her routine before and after her performances, putting on and taking off her make-up. This relates to the pressure and obstacles Rachel faces through an 8-performance week, and how challenging it is for her to maintain great effort each show.

Lyrics

Rachel:
Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start

They tell me I'm too young to understand
They say I'm caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes
Well that's fine by me

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, 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

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don't have any plans

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

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

Oo, ooh, I didn't know I was lost
So wake me up

Trivia

  • This is the second time Rachel sings an acoustic rendition of an EDM song, the first was Without You in Season Three.
