"Start of Something New" is the first song heard in High School Musical the movie and on the movie soundtrack. It is performed by Zac Efron as Troy Bolton and Vanessa Hudgens as Gabriella Montez.

Background

This song is when Troy and Gabriella first meet. During the "Rock the House Contest" at the teen New Year's Eve party Troy and Gabriella are randomly chosen to sing in front of everybody. At first, they're both shy, but eventually they warm up to each other and give an amazing performance with the crowd going wild.

This song is about both Troy and Gabriella meeting each other for the first time and falling head-over-heels in love with each other. It is the "start of something new" as in new feelings.

Later on in the movie, after Chad, Jason and Zeke tell Troy how they tried to break him and Gabriella up, Troy goes to Gabriella's house and sings a shorter version of this song to her on her balcony to try to get her back "(Start of Something New (Reprise))". She then realizes just how much Troy truly cares about her, so she agrees to do the callbacks with him after he reminds her that it's a pair's audition.

Lyrics

Troy: Livin' in my own world

Didn't understand

That anything can happen

When you take a chance

Gabriella: I never believed in

What I couldn't see

I never opened my heart

To all the possibilities, oooh

Troy and Gabriella: I know

Gabriella: That something has changed

Troy and Gabriella: Never felt this way

Gabriella: And right here tonight

Troy and Gabriella: This could be the...

Start of something new

It feels so right to be here with you

And now lookin' in your eyes

I feel in my heart...the start of something new

Troy: Oh, yeah

Now who'd have ever thought that

Troy and Gabriella: We'd both be here tonight

Gabriella: Oh, yeah

And the world looks so much brighter, oh

Troy and Gabriella: With you by my side

I know

That something has changed

Never felt this way

Gabriella: I know it for real

Troy and Gabriella: This could be the

Start of something new

It feels so right to be here with you, oh

And now lookin' in your eyes

I feel in my heart the start of something new

Troy: I never knew that i could happen

'Til it happened to me, oh yeah

Gabriella: I didn't know it before

But know it's easy to see, yeah

Troy and Gabriella: It's the...

Start of something new

It feels so right to be here with you, oh

And now looking in your eyes

I feel in my heart...that it's the...

Start of something new

It feels so right to be here with you

And now looking in your eyes

I feel in my heart...the start of something new

The start of something new

The start of something new
