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!

Hey Yeah Yeah
Oh Whoa
This is something you dance for

There's a moment when you look to decide
Who will fall, who will survive
That's the moment that 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 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(oooh)
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

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 on the floor
Oh 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
