London, Baby

Wide Awake - Katy Perry

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 dreaming 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
Till I woke up on
On the concrete

Falling from cloud 9
Crashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight
Yeah, I'm falling 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

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

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
I'm falling from cloud 9

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)
But I'm not blind anymore
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

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
I'm falling from cloud 9
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake

They're back! ;)

What are the things you want more than love?

It’s a song about nobility and personal sacrifice, about doing what’s right, even if your heart is telling you otherwise. The spoken intro gave us the title for our new album: And love is not the easy thing / The only baggage you can bring / Is all that you can’t leave behind. Love, in the highest sense of the word, is the only thing that you can always take with you, in your heart. At some point you are going to have to lose everything else anyway. There’s a passage in Corinthians that uses the image of a house going through a fire, and it seems to suggest that when, in death, we eventually face judgement (or inspection, as one translation puts it) all that is made of straw and wood will be burned away, only the eternal things will survive. For me those things are family and friendship, abstract things, they’re not the things that you make. So at the end of the song, there is a litany of ambitions and achievements. You’ve got to leave it behind / All that you fashion / All that you make / All that you build / All that you break / All that you measure / All that you steal / All this you can leave behind… It is a mantra, really; a bonfire of vanities, and you can throw anything you want on the fire. That’s a really interesting question to ask: what are the things you want more than love? (Bono Vox - In: U2 by U2*, pages 366-367)

Bono’s question is stuck in my head: what do I need more than love? I’ve stopped to thinking of it. It’s hard to find the real answer: family is the basis of my life. I can’t live without my parents and sister. They can’t live without me. Friends, as Bono said, are “abstract things”, which made spend a long time thinking of. I’ve had friend I supposed were to forever, I and unfortunately, they don’t. In other hands,  have friends who had helped me when I never expected… For sure, friendship is something I want more than love, because I believe it IS a king of love. My doubt is: how can I know what friendship is for real or isn’t? After all the suffering feelings my last “best friend forever” had made me feel, I’m never sure who is in fact a friend for heart…

While I still have no answer for this friendship question, what are the other things I need more than love?! What are the other things I need more than love…  There’s just a word that can describe it: believe. I need to believe. I need to believe that all my dreams come true. I need to believe in love. I need to believe that I’ll be set on the fire and I’ll pass through it. I need to believe that everything, in the end, it’s gonna be alright. I need to believe all the sacrifices I did, I’m doing and I’ll do in the future are for a good reason. I need to believe God is by my side whatever I do, wherever I go. Life is not easy, however, If I believe I won’t give up while I’m crossing the hard times that are coming.

Family, friends and believe. These are the things I need more than love. And you?! What can you tell me about this singular question?!
