    “Hey brother! There’s an endless road to rediscover
    Hey sister! Know the water’s sweet but blood is thicker
    Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
    There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
    Hey brother! Do you still believe in one another?
    Hey sister! Do you still believe in love? I wonder
    Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
    There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
    What if I’m far from home?
    Oh brother, I will hear you call!
    What if I lose it all?
    Oh sister, I will help you out!
    Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
    There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
    Hey brother! There’s an endless road to rediscover
    Hey sister! Do you still believe in love? I wonder
    Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
    There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
    What if I’m far from home?
    Oh brother, I will hear you call!
    What if I lose it all?
    Oh sister, I will help you out!
    Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
    There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do”

    “Hey brother” remains my all time fav..Coca Cola did well to use it for their advert.
    Rest in peace Avicii…You will be missed severely.???

      Are you sure it was drugs? I read somewhere that he suffered from sever pancreatitis.

      He had acute pancreatitis. Though deadly if not properly managed but his was acute which if properly managed one could live normal. Just stay off alcohol and certain foods. His gallbladder was also removed which is double jeopardy but could be managed too. But when you party non stop, drink and do drugs with those health issues you are signing a death warrant.
