Katy Perry – Wide Awake Music Video

Wide Awake” is the second music video and single by American recording artist Katy Perry. It is from Perry’s re-release of her third studio album, Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.

An accompanying music video, directed by Tony T. Datis, was premiered on June 18, 2012. A trailer, directed by Lance Drake, was released on June 12, 2012. It features a fairy tale-plot, where a young girl looks through a story book that features the previous Teenage Dream era singles, each one as a chapter in the book, along with teasers about the fairy tale elements of the official video, which serves as the eighth and final chapter of the book.

The music video premiered on Katy Perry’s official YouTube VEVO channel in mid-late June 2012.

The song was written by Katy Perry, Bonnie McKee, Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Henry Walter, and was produced by Dr. Luke and Cirkut.

Perry performed “Wide Awake” at the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards and at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, where it featured Perry floating over the stage with a white ribbon. The song was specifically written for Perry’s film Katy Perry: Part of Me, which plays during the end credits and from That’s Our Joe from the episode “Love Affair”.

Lyrics for Katy Perry – Wide Awake

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
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 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
