"Wide Awake" as written by and Katy Perry Max Martin....
Everything is winding down
Man I'm so tired of waiting around
My whole life I've been waiting around,
Waiting around for something to happen

Everybody wants to go out on the town
But I just wanna rest,
I just wanna rest my head
Sometimes you don't get what you want when you want it

[Chorus]
Wide awake, determine to stay up half the night
To keep hangovers at bay
I shouldn't go but I lost the judgment
I shouldn't go but I lost the judgment now

This bottle is my winter fog
It helps to clear my thinking
Protect me from this bitter cold
Man what the hell were you drinking

Nobody wants to go out on the town
They just wanna rest, they just wanna rest
I cant wait to go out on the town,
But they just wanna rest
You can rest when your dead

[Chorus: x2]

How many days have you lived your life?
How many days can I live mine?
How many times am I getting by?
Will it ever be enough?

Will it ever be enough?

Everybody wants to go out on the town
But I just wanna rest,
I just wanna rest
All my life I've been lost out and found
Hanging out with my friends, living up our dead ends

Everybody's trying to get away from this town, yeah
They don't wanna rest, they don't wanna rest
They think its for the best
If we get the hell up out of this town
We will never rest, you can rest when your dead

[Chorus: x2]
