VERSE
 
Bm
So nice to meet you
Bm
So good to see your friendly face
Bm
Living in shadows
      G                 A             Bm
I was walking a wire without a safety net
Bm
Fighting to breakthrough
Bm
Trying to outrun the human race
Bm
Sleeping with voodoo
  G                    A
I opened my eyes and I saw your face
    E                   G
You showed me there's a place
 
 
CHORUS
 
           D     A  G
Where I am wide awake
    Bm    G  A
I'm wide awake
    D                  A       G
The mountains shake to my earthquake
    F#             G
And everyone is my friend
    D     A  G
I'm wide awake
   Bm    G   A
So wide awake
    D                A         G
The future's bright alive with light
    F#           G
And I am free to be a kid again
 
 
INTERLUDE
 
Bm G A Bm G F#m Bm G A G A
 
 
VERSE 2
 
Bm
One hand on the throttle
Bm
But I always had one hand on the break
Bm
Under the spotlight
      G                 A               Bm
I was never alone but I always was by myself
Bm
I want to be famous
Bm
Willing to sleep with a rattlesnake
Bm
Looking for daylight
G                           A
Trying to wake up from this nightmare screaming
E                   G
You showed me my mistake
 
 
CHORUS 2
 
           D     A  G
Where I am wide awake
    Bm    G  A
I'm wide awake
    D             A       G
The ramparts fall love conquers all
    F#             G
And everyone is my friend
    D     A  G
I'm wide awake
   Bm    G   A
So wide awake
    D                A         G
The future's bright alive with light
 
 
BRIDGE
 
F#          G                    A          Bm
I can see a place where I could always be a hopeless case
    F#          G
And if I didn't learn to bend
    E                 G
You know that I would break
 
 
 
CHORUS 3
 
           D     A  G
Where I am wide awake
    Bm    G  A
I'm wide awake
    D                  A       G
The mountains shake to my earthquake
    F#             G
And everyone is my friend
    D     A  G
I'm wide awake
   Bm    G   A
So wide awake
    D                A         G
The future's bright alive with light
    F#           G
And I am free to be a kid again
 
           D     A  G
Where I am wide awake
    Bm    G  A
I'm wide awake
    D             A       G
The ramparts fall love conquers all
    E              G
And everyone is my friend
    E              G
And everyone is my friend
    E            G         Bm
And I am free to be a kid again
