Lyrics

Santana (with Brittany):
(Hey-hey-hey, you and me)
Keep on dancing in the dark
It’s been tearing me apart
Never knowing what we are

(Hey-hey-hey, you and me)
Keep on tryin' to play it cool
Now it’s time to make a move
And that’s what I’m gonna do

Artie:
Lay it all down (New Directions: All down)

Brittany:
Got something to say

Artie:
Lay it all down (New Directions: All down)

Brittany:
Throw your doubt away

Artie:
Do or die now (New Directions: Die now)

Brittany:
Step on to the plate

Artie (and Brittany):
Blow the door wide open like
(Up, up and away)

Rachel with New Directions:
Let's light up the world toni-i-ight
You gotta give up the bark and bi-i-ite
I know that we got the love alri-i-ight
Come on and li-li-light it up
Light it up tonight

Hey-hey-hey you and me
Turn it up ten thousand watts
Tell me why we've gotta stop
I just want to let it rock

Artie and Finn with New Directions Boys:
Hey-hey-hey you and me

Keep on staring at the road
Like we don't know where to go
Step back, let me take control

Lay it all down (New Directions: All down)

Got something to say

Artie:
Lay it all down (New Directions: All down)

Trivia

  • This is the last time Lauren performs with New Directions, since she left in The Purple Piano Project after losing this competition.
  • During the chorus, Santana used the opposite arm to which all of the other glee clubbers did to do the choreography. This is because Naya Rivera is left-handed.
  • In the official performance Quinn mouths the line "Up, up and away", while in the official version, Brittany sings it.
  • Although he did not have any lines in the performance, this is Kurt's first time to be performing/dancing in an original song.
  • This is the first time Tina is a featured vocalist in a competition performance.
  • This is the last performance of the second season.

Errors

  • A cameraman can be seen near the end of the performance. Source
  • After the performance, Sam stands on the right and Mercedes stands on the left side. In the close up shot, Sam walks over and hugs her. In the wide shot, Sam's on the right side again.
