Wake Up

By Renate

Drama

Wake Up

I do not own YJ or Katy Perry's Wide Awake, or the cover image.

I'm Wide Awake

As I listened to the song I realized how true it was.

I'm Wide Awake

How clueless I had truly been.

I'm Wide Awake

I should have seen it.

Yeah, I was in the dark

Why wasn't I paying attention?

I was falling hard, with an open heart

If I had been...

I'm Wide Awake

If I had been...

How did I read the stars so wrong?

I hate Katy Perry, but I can't muster the will to get up and turn the radio off.

I'm Wide Awake

Why didn't I pay attention? I'm supposed to be the one who pays attention.

And now it's clear to me, that everything you see, ain't always what it seems

I was taught to analyze a situation before acting.

I'm Wide Awake

Why didn't I do it this time?

Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

The one time I wasn't paying attention was the one time I should have been paying attention.

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.

I'm the worst big brother ever.

Falling from claoud nine, I'm crashing from the high, I'm letting go tonight, I'm falling from cloud nine.

I should have realized that two years ago when Jason died.

I'm Wide Awake

I'm just seeing now, sitting the hospital next to Tim's hospital bed.

Thunder Rumbling, Castles Crumbling

I'm Wide Awake

I am trying to hold on.

They told me he's in a coma.

I'm Wide Awake

They told me he may not wake up.

God knows that I tried, seeing the bright side

I'm Wide Awake

I'm not blind anymore...

I don't know what I'll do if he doesn't.

I'm Wide Awake

"Damn it Tim, wake up." I whisper under my breath.

I'm Wide Awake

The monitor beeps repeatedly.

Yeah, I'm falling from cloud nine, I'm crashing from the high, You know I'm letting go tonight, I'm falling from cloud nine.

Is that a good thing? Does that mean he'll wake up?

I'm Wide Awake

"I'm sorry Tim, I'm so sorry I didn't pay attention."

I'm Wide Awake

"Please wake up!"

I'm Wide Awake

One steady long beep comes from the monitor, and the line goes flat.

I'm Wide Awake

Three doctors rush in.

I'm Wide Awake

"Tim! Tim wake up! Damn it don't do this to me!" I cry. I know what that beeping means.

I'm Wide Awake

I failed another little brother.

I'm Wide Awake

I failed.
