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

    I think she is wide awaked from illuminati. She is falling from cloud nine like falling angel/demon. How did she read the stars so wrong? God knows that she tried seeing the bright side. She's not blind anymore. The she is now wide awaked. According to the music video. She is guided by herself by looking her little katy. Then defeated the emons that fighting them going to the bright side of the isle. #Gab Maquiso :)

    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.
