Lyrics

A dream like this, not something you wish for
A dream like this, not something you ask for
When it's a gift worth taking a chance for
Then this is something you dance for (dance for)

Hey, yeah-yeah...
Oooh, whoa...
This is something you dance for!
Something to Dance For Clip Zendaya

There's a moment when you look to the side
Who will fall, who will survive
That's the moment when you find it inside
On the line, this is your time

And it's all I want
And it's all I do

A dream like this, not something you wish for
A dream like this, not something you
Something To Dance For 5
ask for
When it's a gift worth taking a chance for
Then this is something you dance for

Can you believe it, are you feeling alive?
Hit your mark, ready to rise
Your body's aching but your heart doesn't mind
Feet on the ground, eyes on the prize

And it's all I want
And it's all I do

A dream like this, not something you wish for (oooooh...)
A dream like this, not something you
Something To Dance For 3
ask for
When it's a gift worth taking a chance for
Then this is something you dance for

A dream like this, not something you wish for
A dream like this, not something you ask for
When it's a gift worth taking a chance for
Then this is something you dance for

For the love, for the fame to bring down the rain
For the way that you feel when they're calling your name
For the days, nothing more, it's just you
Something To Dance For 4
on the floor
Ooh, this is something you dance for

A dream like this, not something you wish for
A dream like this, not something you ask for
When it's a gift worth taking a chance for
Then this is something you dance for

A dream like this, not something you wish for
A dream like this, not something you ask for
When it's a gift worth taking a chance for...
