N-Dubz ft. Bodyrox: We Dance On, Street Dance OST Lyrics #MM

Wednesday, January 19, 2011
There are those days in life where you just inevitably have to face all pressures and tribulation coming into your way. Hell yeah, they might be tough to deal with. But, it doesn't mean that you won't be able to stand strong on your feet to reach out for goals and dreams.

In the 80's to 90's, I would be referring to the song "Get On Your Feet" by Gloria Estefan for a situation like this. It is a beautiful song with uplifting beat that belongs to the music of my youth and has a special place in my heart. This week the lyrics of "We Dance On" performed by N-Dubz ft. Bodyrox from the original soundtracks of the movie Street Dance 3D (2010) have me moving for similar reasons. You might be bruised up with scars to heal, tossed into sleepless nights because of some frustration torturing body and soul... But, at the end you gotta stand up like a soldier and take control over your life. Take time to find a way and see that everything's gonna be okay. So let's dance on, everyone.

N-Dubz is a British hip-hop group that released their debut album "Uncle B" in November 2008.  The members are Greek cousins Dino Contostavlos aka 'Dappy' and Tula Contostavlos aka 'Tulisa', plus school friend Richard Rawson aka 'Fazer' or 'Faze' who met at the age of 13. Being raised in a hard environment might be one of the reasons that lead them into controversial cases around bullying, violence and drug abuse that I strongly disapprove of if convicted true. Nonetheless the lyrics of their song "We Dance On" feel inspiring and have received positive critics in the music industry. The song is a collaboration with Bodyrox, a name for English house music DJ duo Jon Pearn and Nick Bridges. This following video does not feature any of the artists performing the song.

PS. I have searched for another video on YouTube, because the previous one couldn't be accessed by some of you. Hopefully this one works out.

We Dance On, Street Dance 3D OST lyrics

Na na naii

Watch me while I stand here
Watch my feet, my stance, my body language
I’m not someone to be messed with
I’m a fox on a mission
You know you’re challenging the best here
It’s gonna be real hard
But I’m gonna be okay
As long as I try real hard
I’m always gonna find my way
I find my way

I stand up like a soldier
I get them ‘til it’s over
I’ll keep marching to the beat
‘til there’s bruises on my feet
Now I’m falling to my knees

‘Cause I’m gonna take this all the way
It’s now or never
I’ll break what’s in my way
I stand up like a soldier
Tonight I’m gonna take over

Ch: ‘Cause I know everything’s gonna be alright
Now you’re standing here right by my side
And we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on
Everything’s gonna be okay
The streets will lighten up my way
So we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on

Not in a million years
Did I think my feet would bring me this far
So much frustration, sleepless nights
Now that I’m in charge
At first no one gave me the time of day
Now I’m left on my own to show the way
My sisters, brothers from other mothers
Can we take this all the way
Could of kicked us to the curb
These days are so hard to get heard
We gonna stand up like a solder
Get everything we deserve (trust)
At first everyone was cautious
When we brought in something new
But after weeks of practicing
We knew exactly what to do

I stand up like a soldier
I get them ‘til it’s over
I’ll keep marching to the beat
‘til there’s bruises on my feet
Now I’m falling to my knees

‘Cause I’m gonna take this all the way
It’s now or never
I’ll break what’s in my way
I stand up like a soldier
Tonight I’m gonna take over

Ch: ‘Cause I know everything’s gonna be alright
Now you’re standing here right at my side
And we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on
Everything’s gonna be okay
The streets will lighten up my way
So we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on
‘Cause I know everything’s gonna be alright
Now you’re standing here right at my side
And we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on
Everything’s gonna be okay
The streets will lighten up my way
So we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on
