Katy Perry – Wide Awake lyrics

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
I'm wide awake
How did I read the stars so wrong
?

(I'm wide awake)
And now it's clear to me
That everything you see
Ain't always what it seems
I'm wide awake
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

(Pre-Chorus)
I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn't dive in
Wouldn't bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
Till I woke up on
On the concrete

(Chorus)
Falling from cloud nine
Crashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight
Yeah I'm falling from cloud nine

(I'm wide awake)
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
(I'm wide awake)
Need nothing to complete myself - nooohooo

(I'm wide awake)
Yeah, I am born again
Outta the lion's den
I don't have to pretend
And it's too late
The story's over now, the end

(Pre-Chorus)
I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn't dive in
Wouldn't bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
Till I woke up on
On the concrete

(Chorus)
Falling from cloud nine (it was out of the blue, I'm)
Crashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight (yeah, I'm letting you go, I'm)
I'm Falling from cloud nine (I'm wide awake)

Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling (I'm wide awake)
I am trying to hold on (I'm wide awake)
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side (I'm wide awake)
I'm not blind anymore

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

(Chorus)
Yeah I'm falling from cloud nine (it was out of the blue, I'm)
Crashing from the high
(Ya' know) I'm letting go tonight (yeah, I'm letting you go, I'm)
I'm falling from cloud nine

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

    This song is basically about trusting and loving someone blindly that you surrender yourself to them but in reality that person was just using you; didn't love you back and showed you his/her true colors which made you so upset that it felt like your life has ended. But now you're wide awake. Your mind has totally changed and this experience has made you strong and made you fill in the ugly holes in life and become a better person.

    In my opinion, the song wide awake by katy perry is about a young girl who shared worldwide that she is not interested. She is not able to move along in tranquility and harmony cause a woman potentially doesn't believe the girl is not interested. The young girl is wide awake and accepts that maybne this is bnettr than a c t you a l y having a fun day.

    I love katy perry! Speaking of katy perry, so excited about the katy perry part of me 3d movie, in 2 days! Anywhoo, what I think it means that when katy says I'm wide awake, I think she says, I'm more fousced now, I'm doig the right things, I'm wide awake. I love this song cuz it calming, and when I first heard this song, I just felt like crying, sense it would be such a sad song. >3 katys like my top idol, but micheal jackson is also like my top idol, and others, too. (especialally marliyn).

    I think that this song meant a lot to Katy because she had now awaken. I also think that it has something to do with her career. It seems so unreal and she didn't understand what is going on with her life. Now she had finally understand something and was not falling so hard. I think that is why she wrote it. She did it to tell everybody that she had finally understand.
