Emotions Music Submissive

Wide Awake

Damn, I should be in bed asleep. I have a long day, week, month, life ahead of me. But one final post, because it’s important to me. I need to share this.

I used to hear this song as a break-up anthem. You did me wrong, and I see it now, and I won’t be fooled again. Ever since it came out. I even mentioned it as the way I saw the beginning of the end of my marriage.

Perceptions change, drastically sometimes. I heard it today on my way home, and it’s a completely new song to me now. It’s bittersweet.

I am not an angry woman with a broken heart. I am not an overtly sad little girl who is shattered on the floor. I am a strong submissive woman. I am awake – not to a failed  or bad relationship, but to a new reality. And it’s okay.

I have picked myself up off of the concrete. And for the really curious, I will post about this in more detail later, I promise. A full reckoning is coming.

Wide Awake – Katy Perry

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
‘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
