  • Lyrics
  • Lord give me grace and dancing feet
    And the power to impress
    Lord give me grace and dancing feet
    Let me outshine the moon

    Is it so wrong to crave recognition?
    Second best, runner-up
    Is it so wrong to want rewarding?
    To want more than is given to you?
    Than is given to you

    [Chorus]
    Tonight make me unstoppable
    And I will charm, I will slice
    I will dazzle them with my wit
    Tonight make me unstoppable
    And I will charm, I will slice
    I will dazzle, I will outshine them all

    Standing on the packed dance floor
    Our bodies thrown in time
    Silent on the weekdays
    Tonight I claim what's mine

    Is it so wrong to crave recognition?
    Second best, runner-up
    Is it so wrong to want rewarding?
    To want more than is given to you?
    Than is given to you

    [Chorus: x2]Writer/s: JAMES NEWTON HOWARD
