Defying Gravity


Elphaba, Why couldn't you have stayed calm for
Once, instead of flying off the handle!

I hope you're happy!
I hope you're happy now
I hope you're happy how you
Hurt your cause forever
I hope you think you're clever!

I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy, too
I hope you're proud how you
Would grovel in submission
To feed your own ambition

So though I can't imagine how
I hope you're happy, right now

Elphie, listen to me. Just say you're sorry
You can still be with the wizard
What you've worked and waited for
You can have all you ever wanted

I know
but I don't want it
I Can't Want it Anymore

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game

Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: And leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!

Can't I make you understand?
You're having delusions of grandeur

I'm through accepting limits
'Cuz someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!

Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!

I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me Goodbye
I'm Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down

Glinda, come with me
Think of what we could Do

Together we're unlimited
Together we'll be the greatest team
There's ever been
Glinda, Dreams, The way we planned 'em

If we work in tandem

There's no fight we cannot win
Just you and I
Defying gravity
With you and I
Defying gravity

They'll never bring us down!
Well? Are you coming?

I hope you're happy
Now that you're choosing this

You too
I hope it brings you bliss

I really hope you get it
And you don't live to regret it
I hope you're happy in the end
I hope you're happy, my friend

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately
Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly!

And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who'd ground me
Take a message back from me

Tell them how I am
Defying gravity
I'm flying high
Defying gravity

And soon I'll match them in renown
And nobody in all of oz
No wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down!

I hope you're happy!

[Citizens of Oz]
Look at her, she's wicked!
Get her!

Bring me down!

Citizens of Oz
No one mourns the wicked
So we've got to bring her
