Wake up kids
We've got the dreamer's disease
Age fourteen we got you down on your knees
So polite, you're busy still saying please

Sam:
Frenemies
Who when you're down
Ain't your friend
Every night
We smash their Mercedes-Benz
First we run
And then we laugh till we cry

Mercedes with Rachel:
But when the night is falling
You cannot find the light, (Finn and Sam: Light)
You feel your dreams are dying
Hold tight

Finn and Sam with New Directions (Sam with New Directions):
You've got the music in you
(Don't let go)
You've got the music in you

You've got a reason to live
(Can't forget)

Trivia

Errors

  • The seniors perform this song first and we can assume the sophomores and juniors did In My Life the next day because everyone's wearing different clothes, but in the scenes that follow such as the bathroom one with Rachel and Quinn and when Quinn is tutoring Puck at home, they are shown wearing the same outfits from the day before.
