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.
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 to high a cost!
I'd sooner buy defing gravity!
Kiss me goodbye, I'm defying gravity,
And you can't pull me down!

Unlimited, my future is unlimited!
And I've jsut had a vision almost like a prophecy.
I know, it sounds truly crazy,
And true, the vision's hazy,
but I swear someday I'll be...
Up in the sky, defying gravity!
Flying so high, defying gravity!
And you can't bring me down. 

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'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 renoun.
And nobody in all of Oz,
No Wizard that there is or was,
Is ever gonna bring me down!
