"Wondering" is a song from "The Read-Through", the second episode of the first season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. The song is performed by Julia Lester and Olivia Rodrigo as their characters Ashlyn and Nini, respectively. An acoustic version featuring the female cast was released on DisneyMusicVevo and was included on the soundtrack.

Summary

After being cast as Ms. Darbus in the East High's production of High School Musical, Ashlyn was asked by Miss Jenn (Kate Reinders) to write a new song for the character. She then performs the songs with Nini (Olivia Rodrigo), inspiring her to write All I Want.

The song is about Ms. Darbus' regrets in giving up her dreams to be a big star in favour of becoming a high school teacher.

Lyrics

Ashlyn:
Seems like a part of me will always have to lose
Every single time I have to choose
Swore that it felt right but was I wrong
Is this where I’m supposed to be at all

I don’t have the answers not today
It’s like nothing makes the questions go away
What I’d give to see
If the grass was greener

On the other side of all I’ve had and lost
Would it be enough
Or would I still be wondering

If I could go back and change the past
Be a little braver than I had
And bet against the odds
Would I still be lost?
Even If I woke up in my dreams
Would there still be something I’m missing
If I had everything
Would it mean anything to me

Ashlyn & Nini:
Maybe I should turn around and the other road
Or maybe I’m just looking for what I already know
Nini: I’m just wondering

Nini:
Feels like I might have broke the best thing that I had
Said too much to ever take it back
Scared I’ll never find something as good
Would I even know it if I could

If I could go back and change the past
Be a little braver than I had
And bet against the odds
Would I still be lost?
Ashlyn & Nini:
Even If I woke up in my dreams
Would there still be something I’m missing
If I had everything
Would it mean anything
Nini: to me?

Ashlyn:
Seems like a part of me will always have to lose
Every single time I have to choose
Swore that it felt right but was I wrong
Is this where I’m supposed to be at all

I don’t have the answers not today
It’s like nothing makes the questions go away
What I’d give to see
If the grass was greener

On the other side of all I’ve had and lost
Would it be enough
Or would I still be wondering

If I could go back and change the past
Be a little braver than I had
And bet against the odds
Would I still be lost?
Even If I woke up in my dreams
Would there still be something I’m missing
If I had everything
Would it mean anything to me

Nini:
Feels like I might have broke the best thing that I had
Said too much to ever take it back
Scared I’ll never find something as good
Would I even know it if I could
