Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Alan Walker:


Length: 3:32

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

You were the shadow to my light
Did you feel us
Another start
You fade away
Afraid our aim is out of sight
Wanna see us
Where are you now
Where are you now
Where are you now
Was it all in my fantasy
Where are you now
Were you only imaginary
Where are you now
