Absolutely love this song!! This is my first tab that I've done by ear; it should 
be correct but if not, constructive criticism is always welcome! 
Enjoy! XD

         A
I'm wide awake
          A
I'm wide awake
          Em    
I'm wide awake
            G 
Yeah, I was in the dark
      D              
I was falling hard
        A 
With an open heart
          Em
I'm wide awake
          A
How did I read the stars so wrong
          Em
I'm wide awake
             G  
And now it's clear to me
           D   
That everything you see
             A
Ain't always what it seems
          Em
I'm wide awake
            A
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

(Pre-Chorus)
              Em
I wish I knew then
            G
What I know now
              D
Wouldn't dive in
             A
Wouldn't bow down
        Em
Gravity hurts
               G
You made it so sweet
             D
Till I woke up on
A
On the concrete
(Chorus)
A
Falling from cloud 9
A
Crashing from the hiiiigh
    A
I'm letting go tonight
           A
(Yeah I'm) Falling from cloud 9
          Em
I'm wide awake
           G 
Not losing any sleep
             D
I picked up every piece
            A
And landed on my feet
          Em
I'm wide awake
             A
Need nothing to complete myself - no oh
          Em
I'm wide awake
           G
Yeah, I am born again
          D
Outta the lion's den
             A
I don't have to pretend
             Em
And it's too late
            A
The story's over now, the end

(Pre-Chorus)
              Em
I wish I knew then
            G
What I know now
              D
Wouldn't dive in
             A
Wouldn't bow down
        Em
Gravity hurts
               G
You made it so sweet
            D
Till I woke up on
A
On the concrete

(Chorus)
    A
Falling from cloud 9
    A
Crashing from the hiiiigh
    A
I'm letting go toniiight (yeah, I'm letting go)
    A
I'm Falling from cloud 9
G
   Thunder rumbling
A 
  Castles crumbling
A
   I am trying to hold ooooon
G
   God knows that I tried
A
  Seeing the bright side
A 
   But I'm not blind anymoooore
          A
I'm wide awake
          A
I'm wide awake

(Chorus)
          A
