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
sponsored links
What I know now
Wouldn't dive in
Wouldn't bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
'Til I woke up on
On the concrete

[Chorus]
Falling from cloud 9
Crashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight
Yeah, I'm falling from cloud 9

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, no

I'm wide awake
Yeah, I am born again
Out of 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
'Til I woke up on
On the concrete

[Chorus]
Falling from cloud 9 (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 falling from cloud 9

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
But I'm not blind anymore...

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

[Chorus]
Yeah, I'm falling from cloud 9 (it was out of the blue)
I'm crashing from the high
You know I'm letting go tonight (yeah, I'm letting you go)
I'm falling from cloud 9

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

This is Illuminati,she realised that she was alread taken.on her video those fireworks shoot out of her chest it show that she was selling her SOUL to Satan.that video and its lyrics are EVIL it just a mind controling thing.buh its so sweet though!.pliz stay away from Illuminate JESUS IS THE LORD

I heard this song a little differently and applied it to my coming out to my family about not being religious. By letting go of religion completely, I began feeling "wide awake"....no longer dreaming. It was liberating.

This song, to me is so beautiful. Katy's lyrics are clearly her realizing her mistake of falling in love with the wrong person. And you know what? I can relate. This song is perfect for me.
"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 the concrete."
Wow. Uh, these lyrics are spot-on. I mean, yes. I was with a guy blahblahblah, bet you've heard that one before. Except this guy was hated by my family, my friends, and yet... I kept after him. I didn't stop. I thought he liked me, no actually. Let's be real, I thought he loved me.
But he used me.
And I knew it was that too. Yet, I liked him so much I went with it. He knew how to make me feel good, and he knew how to put me down enough that he was the hero when he brought me back up.
It was just one big, stupid game.
Until one day my parents put a stop to it. They found out. And they went into my Facebook, emails, text, and facetime and removed and blocked him from all. He moved, so I didn't know where he lived or if his home phone would even be the same anymore.
I hated them.
I continued sneaking phone calls to him when I could, telling them it was my best friend.
And then he started liking other people. He said he would still gladly have me though. Then he told me he never wanted to date me. He just kissed me in February and started everything over because he thought I wanted him as much as he wanted me.
And that was when I realized... we were never meant to be. My parents actually did me a favor. Now.. I listen to this song, and belt out the lyrics, because I know exactly what it feels like.
He wasn't worth the trouble, the deceit.
And God knows, I would've happily continued being an idiot with him if they hadn't stopped it.
I don't need him.
I let go.
End of fairytale.
I'm wide awake.
