Defying Gravity

Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel2019年2月7日


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


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

Elphaba, why couldn't you have stayed calm for once

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

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)
