this album is the best, I have seen the movie about five times. I really recommend it to anyone that hasn't seen or listen to it yet.


The music is heart-thumping and toe-tappingly good! The songs and lyrics resonate. I listen to the music on my way to work ... and I find myself humming parts of different songs from the album throughout my entire work day.

I love this CD, my sister got this for her birthday and we listened to it so much I memorized lots of the songs in less than a week! Look at the quotes to see the first verse of "A Million Dreams" I wrote, from memory.

I love "This is me" but the rest of it and the movie...meh
...after listening to "This is me" like a dozen times in a row I am upping my rating to 3 stars, but that's like a 5 star rating for that song and a 1-2 star for all the rest of it.

Although this movie is really, really, really historically inaccurate - the music is so darn catchy. There have been so many fun events that have to deal with just singing along to the movie. What I really love about this album - is that it has so many powerful uplifting messages. "This is Me" has kind of become one of my anthems. I also really enjoy the song "The Other Side", because it feels like a conversation between me and my best friend. Overall these songs really put a smile on your face.

Beautiful songs - not a bad one in the whole album. Listen to it over and over and over. Perfection! Just like the movie!

Fantastic! These songs will get stuck in your head forever (in the best kind of way).

Impossible to listen through only one time. Whether you saw the movie or not, the soundtrack is one of the best written musicals this century. The music is the story and it's an amazing one at that! Do put it on hold at the library as it is a perfect accompaniment to all summer activities, or fall activities or winter activities....

I am not a stranger to the dark
Hide away, they say
'Cause we don't want your broken parts
I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one'll love you as you are
But I won't let them break me down to dust
I know that there's a place for us
For we are glorious
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown 'em out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh.....
- This is me

Some people long for a life that is simple and planned
Tied with a ribbon
Some people won't sell the sea
'Cuz they're safer on land
To follow what's written
But I'd follow you to the great unknown
Off to a world we call our own
Hand in my hand and we promised to never let go
We're walking a tightrope
High in the sky
We can see the whole world down below
We're walking a tightrope
Never sure never know how far we could fall
But it's all an adventure
That comes with a breathtaking view
Walking the tightrope
with you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
with you, ooh , ooh, ooh, oooh with you
Mountains and valleys
And all that will come in between
Desert and Ocean
You pulled me in
And together we're lost in a dream
Always in motion
So I risk it all just to be with you
And I risk it all for this life we choose
I couldn't write the whole thing:)

I close my eyes and I can see
A world that's waiting up for me
That I call my own
Through the dark
Through the door
Through where no one's been before
But it feels like home
They can say they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say they can say I've lost my mind
I don't care I don't care so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design
Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
Oh a million dreams for the world we're gonna make
- A Million Dreams

I'm trying to hold my breath
Let it stay this way
Can't let this moment end
You set off a dream with me
Getting louder now
Can you hear it echoing?
Take my hand
Will you share this with me?
'Cause darling without you
All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the nightsky
Will never be enough
Never be enough
Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it'll
Never be enough
Never be enough
For me
Never, never
Never, never
Never, for me
For me
Never enough
Never enough
Never enough
For me
For me
For me
- from 'Never Enough' feat. Loren Allred

You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
I know you want me
So don't keep saying our hands are tied
You claim it's not in the cards
Fate is pulling you miles away
And out of reach from me
But you're here in my heart
So who can stop me if I decide
That you're my destiny?
What if we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine
Nothing could keep us apart
You'd be the one I was meant to find
It's up to you, and it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
So why don't we rewrite the stars?
Maybe the world could be ours
- from 'Rewrite the Stars' feat. Zac Ephron and Zendaya
