Defying Gravity

This is one of my favourite songs of all time from the musical Wicked – the plot and the music is something that touched my heart and listening to this song always inspires me to transcend the small and the narrow. And so this is my lowly tribute to 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
Kiss me goodbye I am defying gravity
And you won’t bring me down!

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 be defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye I’m defying gravity
I think I’ll try defying gravity
And you wont bring me down!
