“Wide Awake” by Katy Perry Works a Lot Better If You Change the Lyrics

This morning, Lady McGregor and I were discussing how Katy Perry’s latest smash hit “Wide Awake” is so obviously about her recent divorce from Russell Brand. (Either that or the Illuminati.)

Then, all of a sudden, it came to us…isn’t the song way better if you change the recurring phrase “I’m wide awake” to “I got divorced”?

You can leave the entire rest of the song intact and it works beautifully.

See below and enjoy!

I got divorced
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
I got divorced
How did I read the stars so wrong?
I got divorced
And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
I got divorced
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 got divorced
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
I got divorced
Need nothing to complete myself, no

I got divorced
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 got divorced
Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
I got divorced
I am trying to hold on
I got divorced
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
I got divorced
But I’m not blind anymore…

I got divorced
I got divorced

[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 got divorced
I got divorced
I got divorced
I got divorced
I got divorced

Feel better soon, Katy.
