by Rick Springfield & Matt Bissonette

So nice to meet you
So good to see a friendly face
Living in shadows I was walking a wire
without a safety net
Fighting to break through trying to
outrun the human race
Sleeping with voodoo I open my eyes
and saw your face
You show me there’s a place

Where I am wide awake
I’m wide awake
The mountains shake to my earthquake
And everyone is my friend
I’m wide awake so wide awake
The future’s bright alive with light
I am free to be a kid again

One hand on the throttle but I always
had one hand on the brake
Under the spotlight I was never alone
But I was always by myself
I want to be famous, willing to sleep
with a rattlesnake
Looking for daylight
Trying to wake up
from this nightmare screaming
You showed me my mistake

And now I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
The ramparts fall, love conquers all
And everyone is my friend
I’m wide awake, forever wide awake
The future’s bright alive with light
I can see a place where I could always
be a hopeless case
And if I didn’t learn to bend
You know that I would break

But now I’m wide awake
I’m wide awake
The mountains shake to my earthquake
And everyone is my friend
I’m wide awake so wide awake
The future’s bright alive with light
And I am free to be a kid again

Wide awake
I’m wide awake
The ramparts fall, love conquers all
And everyone is my friend
And everyone is my friend
And I’m free to be a kid again
