A couple days ahead of the release of her “Part Of Me” music video, Katy Perry has just released a new track titled “Wide Awake,” and we’ve got your first listen. The verdict on the new track? It’s good! “Wide Awake” is more of the post breakup Katy, as she sings about being wide awake and seeing clearly now who was right in front of her. “Part Of Me” was more upbeat and angry, where as this one is a bit slower and more of a look back at the end of the relationship. Here are the lyrics from the first verse & chorus:
“I’m wide awake. Yeah I was in the dark, I was fallin’ 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, a’int always what it seems (I’m wide awake) Yeah i was dreamin’ for so long. 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.”
It’s definitely a great addition to the Teenage Dream collection that comes out on March 26. Give it a listen below!
