Defying Gravity Lyrics

[GLINDA, spoken]
Elphaba, why couldn't you stay 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've hurt your cause forever
I hope you think you're clever

[ELPHABA, spoken]
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

[GLINDA, spoken]
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

[ELPHABA, spoken]
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 elses 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!

Together we're unlimited
Together we'll be the greatest team
There's ever been
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?

[GLINDA, sung]
I hope you're happy
I hope your 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:
"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'm 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 got to bring her!

About “Defying Gravity”

Considered the signature song of Wicked — Elphaba has discovered the horrible truth about the Wizard of Oz and is angry. Glinda tries to calm her down and Elphaba learns that she should trust her instincts, go off and do what she believes in.
The initial score of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ is often repeated and ‘sown’ into almost most songs. This suggests the obvious relationship between ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Wicked’ which is true, as Wicked is its prequel.
