But this is not enough! Perry includes 3 new songs, between them Wide Awake which was leaked on internet days before the official release date.

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 dreamin’ 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)
Fallin’ from cloud 9
Crashin’ from the high
I’m lettin’ go tonight
Yeah I’m fallin’ 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)
Fallin’ from cloud 9
(It was outta the blue, I’m)
Crashin’ from the high
I’m lettin’ go tonight
(Yeah, I’m lettin’ you go, I’m)
I’m fallin’ from cloud 9

(Bridge)
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
I’m not blind anymore

I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake

(Chorus)
Yeah I’m fallin’ from cloud 9
(It was outta the blue, I’m)
Crashin’ from the high
You know I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah, I’m lettin’ you go, I’m)
I’m fallin’ from cloud 9

I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
