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 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
Nooohoo

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 9
Crashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight
(yeah, I'm letting go)

I'm Falling from cloud 9
Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
I am trying to hold on

God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
But I'm not blind anymore...
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

[Chorus]

Yeah, I'm Falling from cloud 9
Crashing from the high
You know I'm letting go tonight
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

to me this song has LOTS of meanings. One is that you have a boy or girl or whoever in your life and they make you feel like you're the only person in the world. They treat you like a god or goddess but out of no where they treat you like nothing. They just forget about you. That's what this song means to me.

I get a strange feeling of happiness when I hear this song. It's like it has a meaning that is very powerful. I love this song, along with most of Katty's other songs.

Some people might interpret this song as a song that could be heard after a breakup. Which some of the lyrics of the song could be interpreted as that but in my opinion, she just realized how bad the Illuminati are.She did sell her sole the devil and now she is regretting it.God help her free heself

it raised my sprits high and it also gave me a message to never give up and don't let things come in your way

I thought it meant she now sees the truth about a situation because she was fooled or blinded by it, and how could she have thought it was true. But Kate's interpretation seems better..

I think it means she is reclaiming her God-given dignity. She's been humbled & the things she thought were important are not. The teenage dream is over and she's ready to pursue a heavenly kingdom.
