Different World - Alan Walker ft. Sofia Carson, K-391 & CORSAK




The Experience: "This is not the world we had in mind." We live in a culture of consumption and waste that looks at the world as nothing more than an object to be used for our pleasure. We all know the issues, but what are you doing about it?


Music video: Splices together the various social media accounts of the artists where they address the many urgent ecological issues our world is facing with Sofia's music video. A unique and powerful artistic creation.

The Meaning of Different World: "This is not the world we had in mind..." one in which nature's beauty can be valued and protected... "but we got time" to address those problems and when we look at the still pristine reaches of the stary sky and the virgin wilderness we get an idea of "a different time". "Though we might have lost tonight"... we can still build to a better future.

Ask yourself: What am I doing to address our world's ecological problems in my own small way?

Album: Different World (2018)

LYRICS:

All we know
Left untold
Beaten by a broken dream
Nothing like what it used to be (used to be)

We've been chasing our demons down an empty road
Been watching our castle turning into dust
Escaping our shadows just to end up here
Once more
And we both know

This is not the world we had in mind
But we got time
We are stuck on it so we can thrive
But we can turn it
And even though we might have lost tonight
The skyline reminds us of a different time
This is not the world we had in mind
But we got time

Broken smile, tired eyes
I can feel your longing heart
Call my name, howling from afar

We've been fighting our demons just to stay afloat
Been building a castle just to watch it fall
Been running forever just to end up here
Once more
And now we know

This is not the world we had in mind
But we got time
We are stuck on it so we can thrive
But we can turn it
And even though we might have lost tonight
The skyline reminds us of a different time
This is not the world we had in mind
But we got time

Take me back
Back to the mountainside
Under the Northern Lights
Chasing the stars
Take me back
Back to the mountainside
When we were full of life
Back to the start
And we both know that


This is not the world we had in mind
But we got time
We are stuck on it so we can thrive
But we can turn it
And even though we might have lost tonight
The skyline reminds us of a different time
This is not the world we had in mind
But we got time
