"Defying Gravity"

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.
I'm through accepting limits
'cause someone says they're so
Somethings 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...
And so I'll try defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'll be defying gravity
and you can't pull me down...
So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky
As someone told me lately
Everyone deserves to fly
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who ground me
Take a message back for me
Tell them how I'm defying gravity
I'm flying high, defying gravity
And soon I'll match them in renown
And no body in all of Oz
No wizard that there is or was
Is ever going to bring me down!
Bring me down!
-From the musical "Wicked"
**Why didn't I hear this song four years ago?
