"Out of the Old" is a song from "Thanksgiving", the seventh episode of the first season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. It is a solo performed by Nini.

Summary

Ashlyn (Julia Lester) encourages Nini (Olivia Rodrigo) to write a song about herself rather than her relationships, leading her to compose "Out of the Old", and consider applying for a performing arts school based in Denver.

Lyrics

Nini:
Feels like I'm not where I'm supposed to be
I don't fit in with these familiar faces
And the games they play don't mean a thing to me
I know there's so much more

I can't stop dreaming, and thinking
Maybe I could be someone different
More than a yearbook memory
If I leave this, I'm riskin' almost everything
Am I on the right road?

Out of the old
I've gotta find my way
Into the new
Give anything it takes
I wanna know
If no one knew my name
Would my wildest dreams feel like home?

Out of the old
I wish these streets were still enough for me
I wish this town could give me everything
But I still feel stopped while every light turns green
Why can't I let it go?

I can't stop dreaming, and thinking
Maybe I could be someone different
More than a yearbook memory
Leavin' all this, I'm riskin' almost everything

Out of the old
I've gotta find my way
Into the new
Give anything it takes
I wanna know
If no one knew my name
Would my wildest dreams feel like home?

If I go out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
Out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
Yeah, I wanna know (ayo, ayo)
If no one knew my name
Would my wildest dreams feel like home? (Ayo, ayo)

Out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
Take me out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
'Cause I wanna go
I wanna go
Mm
Just take me

Nini:
Feels like I'm not where I'm supposed to be
I don't fit in with these familiar faces
And the games they play don't mean a thing to me
I know there's so much more

I can't stop dreaming, and thinking
Maybe I could be someone different
More than a yearbook memory
If I leave this, I'm riskin' almost everything
Am I on the right road?

Out of the old
I've gotta find my way
Into the new
Give anything it takes
I wanna know
If no one knew my name
Would my wildest dreams feel like home?

If I go out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
Out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
Yeah, I wanna know (ayo, ayo)
If no one knew my name
Would my wildest dreams feel like home?

Out of the old
I wish these streets were still enough for me
I wish this town could give me everything
But I still feel stopped while every light turns green
Why can't I let it go?

I can't stop dreaming, and thinking
Maybe I could be someone different
More than a yearbook memory
Leavin' all this, I'm riskin' almost everything
But there's only one road

Out of the old
I've gotta find my way
Into the new
Give anything it takes
I wanna know
If no one knew my name
Would my wildest dreams feel like home?

If I go out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
Out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
Yeah, I wanna know (ayo, ayo)
If no one knew my name
Would my wildest dreams feel like home? (Ayo, ayo)

Out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
Take me out of the old (ayo, ayo)
And into the new (ayo, ayo)
'Cause I wanna go
I wanna go
Mm
Just take me
