Wicked, defying gravity

One of my favorite songs, "Defying Gravity", is from the Broadway play "Wicked".  Kurt and Rachael did a particularly good version of it for "Glee" (see link below).


The song means a lot to me because it talks about my life as I move forward and step out into the unknown. 

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'm 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 'til 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 
I think I'll try 
Defying gravity 
And you won't bring me down... 

I'd sooner buy 
Defying gravity 
Kiss me goodbye 
I'm Defying gravity 
I think I'll try 
Defying gravity 
And you won't bring me down, 
Bring me down 

Oh Oh Oh
