Wide Awake
WideAwake Performance
Album: A Katy or A Gaga
Released: November 5, 2013
By: Katy Perry
Sung by: Jake, Kitty, Tina, and Unique
Place: The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: A Katy or A Gaga

Wide Awake by Katy Perry is featured in A Katy or A Gaga, the fourth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Jake, Kitty, Tina, and Unique.

The four were under pressure and constantly arguing as they discussed how to do their Katy Perry number. It is not until Tina halts everything to suggest that Katy is a kind, sweet and fun person with nice songs. She tells the others that they need to do a stripped-down version of a song with no costumes or gimmicks, just music. The four sit on the auditorium stage on stools as they perform an acoustic version of Wide Awake.  Their voices blend together in harmony as the rest of the Glee Club (excluding Marley who was suspended) and Penny, relax and enjoy the performance. At the end of the performance, Marley can be seen upset at her locker in her Katy costume as Jake approaches her. 

Lyrics

Jake:
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?

Tina:
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

Kitty and Jake:
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

Unique (and Tina):
Falling from cloud nine (Jake: We're falling, yeah)
Crashing from the high (Jake: From high)
I'm (letting go tonight)
Yeah, I'm (falling from cloud nine)

Kitty (with Jake):
(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...) Oh

Jake:
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, yeah

Kitty and Unique:
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

Unique and Tina (Jake):
Falling from cloud nine (It was out of the blue, I'm)
Crashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight (Yeah, I'm ready to go, I'm)
Yeah, I'm falling from cloud nine

Jake and Tina:
I'm wide awake! (Kitty: Thunder rumbling)
I'm wide awake! (Unique: Castles crumbling)
I'm wide awake! (Tina: I am trying to)
Hold on

Jake, Tina and Unique (Kitty):
I'm wide awake! (God knows that I've tried)
I'm wide awake! (Seeing the bright side)

Unique (with Jake):
But I'm not (blind anymore)

Kitty (Jake and Tina):
I'm (I'm wide awake!) falling from cloud nine

Unique:
It was out the blue, I'm

Jake and Tina:
Crashing from the high

Kitty and Jake:
You know I'm letting go tonight (Unique: Yeah, I'm ready to go, I'm!)

Jake and Tina:
I'm falling from cloud nine

Kitty, Jake, Unique, and Tina:
I'm wide awake
