"Something's Coming" is a song that is featured in the 2021 live-action feature film, West Side Story. When Valentina (Rita Moreno) advises Tony (Ansel Elgort) to get off the streets and away from his juvenile delinquent friends, he instead dances around Doc's Drugstore while singing this song about his future.

Lyrics

Could be!
Who knows?
There’s something due any day;
I will know right away
Soon as it shows

It may come cannonballin’
Down through the sky
Gleam in its eye
Bright as a rose!
Who knows?

It’s only just out of reach
Down the block, on a beach
Under a tree

I got a feelin’ there’s a miracle due
Gonna come true
Comin’ to me!

Could it be? Yes, it could
Something’s coming, something good
If I can wait!

Something’s comin’, I don’t know what it is
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock
Phone’ll jingle, door’ll knock
Open the latch!

Something’s comin’, don’t know when
But it’s soon
Catch the moon
One-handed catch!

Around the corner
Or whistling’ down the river
Come on deliver
To me!

Will it be?
Yes, it will
Maybe just by holdin’ still
It’ll be there!

Come on, something,
Come on in
Don’t be shy, meet a guy
Pull up a chair!

The air is hummin’
And something great is comin’!
Who knows?

It’s only just out of reach
Down the block, on a beach
Maybe tonight
