Defying Gravity

 
Kristin Chenoweth Lyrics
Wicked Soundtrack Musical, 2003
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Defying Gravity GALINDA
(Spoken)
Why couldn't you have stayed calm, for once! Instead of flying off the handle!

(Sung)
I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy now
I hope you're happy how you've
Hurt your cause forever
I hope you think you're clever

ELPHABA
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

GALINDA & ELPHABA
So though I can't imagine how
I hope you're happy
Right now

GALINDA
(Spoken)
Elphie, listen to me. Just say you're sorry!

(Sung)
You can still be with the Wizard
What you've worked and waited for
You can have all you ever wanted -

ELPHABA
(Spoken)
I know

(Sung)
But I don't want it - No!
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

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

ELPHABA
I'm through accepting limits
'Cause 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!

(Spoken)
Galinda, come with me. Think of what we could do together!

(Sung)
Unlimited
Together we're unlimited
Together we'll be the greatest team
There's ever been - Glinda!
Dreams the way we planned 'em

GALINDA
If we work in tandem

GALINDA & ELPHABA
There's no fight we cannot win
Just you and I, defying gravity
With you and I defying gravity

ELPHABA
They'll never bring us down!

(Spoken)
Well, are you coming?

(GLINDA decides to stay behind.)

GALINDA
I hope you're happy
I hope your happy now that your choosing this -

ELPHABA
(Spoken)
You too

(Sung)
I hope it brings you bliss

GALINDA & ELPHABA
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

ELPHABA
So if you care to find me
Look to the Western sky!
As someone told me lately
Everyone deserves the chance to fly
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who 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!!

GALINDA
I hope you're happy

CITIZENS OF OZ
Look at her
She's wicked
Get her!!

ELPHABA
Bring me down!

CITIZENS OF OZ
No one mourns the wicked
So we got to bring her -

ELPHABA
Ahhhh!

CITIZENS OF OZ
--Down!
