- 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
No, I can't want it

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

'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

Glinda, come with me
Think of what we could do together
Unlimited, 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
Look at her, she's wicked
Get her
Bring me down
No one mourns the wicked
So we've got to bring her
Ahh, down
