Defying Gravity lyrics
Glinda: Elphie, wait! Where are you going?
Elphaba: Oh no! There are no more stairs! This might be the attic...
Glinda: Elphaba, listen to me...
Elphaba: I have to barricade the door! She Picks Up A Broom And Places It Over A Trap Door.
Glinda: 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'VE 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 AMBISSION
SO THOUGH I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW
I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY
Morrible: Citizens of Oz, there is an enemy that must be found and captured! Believe nothing she says. She's evil. Responsible for the mutilation of these poor, innocent monkeys! Her green skin is but an outward manifestation of her twisted nature! This distortion... this repulsion... this... Wicked Witch!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Scene Fades To Elphaba & Glinda.
Glinda: Don't be afraid...
Elphaba: I'm not... it's the Wizard who should be afraid... of me!
Glinda: Elphie, just say you're sorry before it's too late.
YOU CAN STILL BE WITH THE WIZARD
WHAT YOU'VE WORKED AND WAITED FOR
YOU CAN HAVE ALL YOU EVER WANTED...
Elphaba: 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...
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 GRANDURE?
I'M THROUHG EXCEPTING LIMITS
'CUZ SOMEONE SAYS THEY'RE SO
SOME THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE,
BUT 'TIL I TRY I'LL NEVER KNOW!
TOO LONG I'VE BEEN AFRAID OF
LOSING LOVE I GUESS I'D 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!
The Guards Bang On The Locked Door.
Guard: Open this door, in the name of his supreme Ozness!
Elphaba: Ah May Ah Tay Ah Tum Ditum...
Glinda: As Elphaba Continues Chanting. What are you doing?! Stop it! That's what started all this in the first place... that hideous levitation spell! STOP!!!
Elphaba Stops Chanting.
Glinda: Well... Where are your wings? Maybe you're not as powerful as you think you are...
A Broomstick Floats Across The Room Towards Elphaba.
Elphaba: I told you, Glinda... I did it, I tell ya!
The Guards Bang On The Door Once Again.
Elphaba: Quick! Get on!
Elphaba: 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
JUST YOU AND I DEFYING GRAVITY
WITH YOU AND I DEFYING GRAVITY
THEY'LL NEVER BRING US DOWN.
Well, are you coming?
Glinda: Elphie, you're trembling... here, put this around you...
She Drapes A Black Cape Around Her.
I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY
NOW THAT YOU'RE CHOOSING THIS
Elphaba: 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...
Elphaba Runs Off. The Guards Break Down The Door.
Guard: There she is! Don't let her get away!
They Grab Hold Of Glinda.
Glinda: What in Oz?! Let go of me! Do you hear me? Let go!
Elphaba: It's not her. She has nothing to do with. I'm the one you want. It's me. Hahahahaha. It's me! Up here! It's me!
She Rises Up Center Stage Holding Her Broom.
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
IN ALL OF OZ...
NO WIZARD THAT THERE IS OR WAS
IS EVER GONNA BRING
LOOK AT HER, SHE'S WICKED
Elphaba: BRING ME DOWN!!!!
Ozians: NO ONE MOURNS THE WICKED! SO WE'VE GOT TO BRING HER...
