KATY PERRY - Wide Awake

This song is from the album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection(2012), released on Mar 23, 2012.
This is one of my favorite songs of Katy Perry. The production is amazing, the performance is mind-blowing and the lyrics are excellent. The power and energy in her voice are constant and perfect throughout the song. The background music also feels empowering and compelling. Although just a few chords are used throughout the song, those 4 chords pushes the song forward and makes it interesting. Thanks to Emmzzz for this excellent suggestion.

            Gm Bb F C
I'm wide awake
            Gm Bb F C
I'm wide awake

[VERSE]
           Gm
I'm wide awake
              Bb
Yeah, I was in the dark
          F
I was falling hard
         C
With an open heart
            Gm
(I'm wide awake)
            Bb               F    C
How did I read the stars so wrong?
            Gm
(I'm wide awake)
              Bb
And now it's clear to me
           F
That everything you see
             C
Ain't always what it seems
             Gm
(I'm wide awake)
              Bb             F  C
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

[CHORUS]
              Gm
I wish I knew then
              Bb
What I know now
              F
Wouldn't dive in
               C
Wouldn't bow down
          Gm
Gravity hurts
                 Bb
You made it so sweet
             F
'Til I woke up on
           C
On the concrete

[CHORUS]
Gm          Bb       F C
Falling from cloud nine
Gm         Bb      F C
Crashing from the high
       Gm   Bb     F C
I'm letting go tonight
       Gm           Bb         F C
Yeah, I'm falling from cloud nine

[VERSE]
          Gm
I'm wide awake
            Bb
Not losing any sleep
              F
I picked up every piece
            C
And landed on my feet
            Gm
I'm wide awake
            Bb            F        C
Need nothing to complete myself, no

            Gm
I'm wide awake
             Bb
Yeah, I am born again
            F
Out of the lion's den
               C
I don't have to pretend
                Gm
And it's too late
             Bb           F  C
The story's over now, the end



[CHORUS]
              Gm
I wish I knew then
              Bb
What I know now
              F
Wouldn't dive in
               C
Wouldn't bow down
          Gm
Gravity hurts
                 Bb
You made it so sweet
             F
'Til I woke up on
           C
On the concrete

Thunder rumbling

Castles crumbling
            Gm
(I'm wide awake)
Gm      Bb       F    C
I am trying to hold on
C
(I'm wide awake)

God knows that I tried
F        C
Seeing the bright side
C
(I'm wide awake)

I'm not blind anymore...

I'm wide awake
