Defying Gravity

Wicked

Composição: Stephen Schwatrz

GLINDA
(spoken) Elphaba – why couldn’t you have stayed calm for
once, instead of flying off the handle!
(sung) I hope you’re happy!
I hope you’re happy now
I hope you’re happy how you
Hurt your cause forever
I hope you think you’re clever!

ELPHABA
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 ambition

BOTH
So though I can’t imagine how
I hope you’re happy right now

GLINDA
(spoken) Elphie, listen to me. Just say you’re sorry:
(sung) You can still be with the Wizard
What you’ve worked and waited for
You can have all you ever wanted:

ELPHABA
(spoken) I know:
(sung) But I don’t want it –
No – I can’t want it
Anymore:

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!

GLINDA
Can’t I make you understand?
You’re having delusions of grandeur:

ELPHABA
I’m through accepting limits
‘Cuz 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 buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I’m defying gravity
And you can’t pull me down:
(spoken) Glinda – come with me. Think of what we could
do: together.

(sung) Unlimited
Together we’re unlimited
Together we’ll be the greatest team
There’s ever been
Glinda –
Dreams, the way we planned ‘em

GLINDA
If we work in tandem:

BOTH
There’s no fight we cannot win
Just you and I
Defying gravity
With you and I
Defying gravity

ELPHABA
They’ll never bring us down!
(spoken) Well? Are you coming?

GLINDA
I hope you’re happy
Now that you’re choosing this

ELPHABA
(spoken) You too
(sung) I hope it brings you bliss

BOTH
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, my friend:

ELPHABASo if you care to find me
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately:
“Ev’ryone 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 renown
And nobody in all of Oz
No Wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down!

GLINDA
I hope you’re happy!

CITIZENS OF OZ
Look at her, she’s wicked!
Get her!

ELPHABA
:Bring me down!

CITIZENS OF OZ
No one mourns the wicked
So we’ve got to bring her

ELPHABA
Ahhh!

CITIZENS OF OZ
Down!

 

For Good

Wicked

Composição: Stephen Schwatrz

ELPHABA
I’m limited:
Just look at me – I’m limited
And just look at you –
You can do all I couldn’t do, Glinda
So now it’s up to you
(spoken) For both of us
(sung) Now it’s up to you:

GLINDA
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you:

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

ELPHABA
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend:
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you:

GLINDA
Because I knew you:

BOTHI have been changed for good

ELPHABA
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for

GLINDA
But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share

BOTH
And none of it seems to matter anymore

GLINDA ELPHABA
Like a comet pulled Like a ship blown
From orbit as it Off it’s mooring
Passes a sun, like By a wind off the
A stream that meets Sea, like a seed
A boulder, half-way Dropped by a
Through the wood Bird in the wood

BOTH
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?

GLINDA
And because I knew you:
ELPHABA
Because I knew you:

BOTH
Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.

 

What Is This Feeling?

Wicked

Composição: Stephen Schwatrz

GALINDA
(spoken) Dearest darlingest Momsie and Popsical:

ELPHABA
(spoken) My dear Father:

BOTH
There’s been some confusion
Over rooming here at Shiz:

ELPHABA
But of course, I’ll care for Nessa:

GLINDA
But of course, I’ll rise above it:

BOTH
For I know that’s how you’d want me to respond
Yes.
There’s been some confusion
For you see, my room-mate is:

GALINDA
Unusually and exceedingly peculiar
And altogether quite impossible to describe:

ELPHABA
Blonde.

GALINDA
What is this feeling?
So sudden and new?

ELPHABA
I felt it the moment
I laid eyes on you:

GALINDA
My pulse is rushing:

ELPHABA
My head is reeling:

GALINDA
My face is flushing:

BOTH
What is this feeling?
Fervid as a flame,
Does it have a name?
Yes!
Loathing
Unadulterated loathing

GALINDA
For your face

ELPHABA
Your voice

GALINDA
Your clothing

BOTH
Let’s just say – I loathe it all
Ev’ry little trait, however small
Makes my very flesh begin to crawl
With simple utter loathing
There’s a strange exhilaration
In such total detestation
It’s so pure and so strong!
Though I do admit it came on fast
Still I do believe that it can last
And I will be loathing
Loathing you
My whole life long!

STUDENTS
Dear Galinda, you are just too good
How do you stand it? I don’t think I could!
She’s a terror! She’s a Tartar!
We don’t mean to show a bias,
But Galinda, you’re a martyr!

GALINDA
Well: these things are sent to try us!

STUDENTS
Poor Galinda, forced to reside
With someone so disgusticified
We all just want to tell you:
We’re all on your side!
We share your…

GALINDA AND ELPHABA (STUDENTS)
What is this feeling (Loathing)
So sudden and new? (Unadulterated loathing)
I felt the moment (For her face, her voice)
I laid eyes on you (Her clothing)
My pulse is rushing (Let’s just say:)
My head is reeling (We loathe it all!)
Oh, what is this feeling? (Ev’ry little trait however small)
Does it have a name? (Makes our very flesh)
Yes: (Begin to crawl)
Ahhh (Ahhh)

ALL
Loathing! (Loathing!)

GALINDA AND ELPHABA (ALL)
There’s a strange exhilaration (Loathing)
In such total detestation (Loathing)
It’s so pure and so strong (So strong)

GALINDA AND ELPHABA
Though I do admit it came on fast
Still I do believe that it can last
And I will be loathing (Loathing)
For forever loathing (Loathing)
Truly deeply loathing you (Loathing you)
My whole life long! (Loathing, unadulterated loathing)

ELPHABA
Boo!

GALINDA
Aahh!

 

One Short Day

Wicked

Composição: Stephen Schwatrz

ELPHABA
(spoken) Come with me. To the Emerald City.

TOURISTS
One short day
In the Emerald City

GLINDA
(spoken) Oh, I’ve always wanted to see the Emerald City:

TOURISTS
One short day
In the Emerald City

One short day
In the Emerald City
One short day
Full of so much to do
Ev’ry way
That you look in the city
There’s something exquisite
You’ll want to visit
Before the day’s through

ELPHABA
There are buildings as tall as Quoxwood trees

GLINDA
Dress salons

ELPHABA
And libraries

GLINDA
Palaces!

ELPHABA
Museums!

BOTH
A hundred strong:
There are wonders like I’ve never seen

GLINDA
It’s all grand

ELPHABA
And it’s all green!

BOTH
I think we’ve found the place where we belong!
I wanna be
In this hoi polloi

ELPHABA
So I’ll be back for good someday

BOTH
To make my life and make my way
But for today, we’ll wander and enjoy:

ALL
One short day
In the Emerald City
One short day
To have a lifetime of fun
One short day

ELPHABA AND GLINDA
And we’re warning the city
Now that we’re in here
You’ll know we’ve been here

ALL
Before we are done!

GLINDA
(spoken) Elphie – come on – we’ll be late for Wizomania!

WIZOMANIA CHORUS
Who’s the mage
Whose major itinerary
Is making all Oz merrier?
Who’s the sage
Who’s sagely sailed in to save our posteriors?
Whose enthuse for hot air ballooning
Has all of Oz honeymooning?
Woo – oo -oo
Wizn’t he wonderful?
(Our wonderful Wizard!)

AUDIENCE (WIZOMANIA CHORUS)
One short day (Who’s the mage)
In the Emerald City (Whose major itinerary)
One short day (Is making all Oz merrier)
To have a lifetime (Whose the sage who)
Of fun (Sagely sailed in to save)
(Our posteriors)
What a way
To be seeing the city:

ELPHABA AND GLINDA
Where so many roam to
We’ll call it home, too
And then, just like now
We can say:
We’re just two friends

ELPHABA
Two good friends

GLINDA
Two best friends
ALL
Sharing one wonderful
One short:

GUARD
(spoken) The Wizard will see you now!

ALL
Day!

 

I’m Not That Girl

Wicked

Composição: Stephen Schwatrz

ELPHABA
Hands touch, eyes meet
Sudden silence, sudden heat
Hearts leap in a giddy whirl
He could be that boy
But I’m not that girl:

Don’t dream too far
Don’t lose sight of who you are
Don’t remember that rush of joy
He could be that boy
I’m not that girl

Ev’ry so often we long to steal
To the land of what-might-have-been
But that doesn’t soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in

Blithe smile, lithe limb
She who’s winsome, she wins him
Gold hair with a gentle curl
That’s the girl he chose
And Heaven knows
I’m not that girl:

Don’t wish, don’t start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn’t born for the rose and the pearl
There’s a girl I know
He loves her so
I’m not that girl:

 

Popular

Wicked

Composição: Stephen Schwatrz

GALINDA
(spoken) Elphie – now that we’re friends, I’ve decided to
make you my new project.

ELPHABA
(spoken) You really don’t have to do that

GALINDA
(spoken) I know. That’s what makes me so nice!
(sung) Whenever I see someone
Less fortunate than I
(And let’s face it – who isn’t
Less fortunate than I?)
My tender heart
Tends to start to bleed
And when someone needs a makeover
I simply have to take over
I know I know exactly what they need
And even in your case
Tho’ it’s the toughest case I’ve yet to face
Don’t worry – I’m determined to succeed
Follow my lead
And yes, indeed
You will be:

Popular!
You’re gonna be popular!
I’ll teach you the proper ploys
When you talk to boys
Little ways to flirt and flounce
I’ll show you what shoes to wear
How to fix your hair
Everything that really counts

To be popular
I’ll help you be popular!
You’ll hang with the right cohorts
You’ll be good at sports
Know the slang you’ve got to know
So let’s start
‘Cause you’ve got an awfully long way to go:

Don’t be offended by my frank analysis
Think of it as personality dialysis
Now that I’ve chosen to be come a pal, a
Sister and adviser
There’s nobody wiser
Not when it comes to popular –
I know about popular
And with an assist from me
To be who you’ll bee
Instead of dreary who-you-were: are:
There’s nothing that can stop you
From becoming popu-
Ler: lar:

La la la la
We’re gonna make
You popular

When I see depressing creatures
With unprepossessing features
I remind them on their own behalf
To think of
Celebrated heads of state or
Specially great communicators
Did they have brains or knowledge?
Don’t make me laugh!

They were popular! Please –
It’s all about popular!
It’s not about aptitude
It’s the way you’re viewed
So it’s very shrewd to be
Very very popular
Like me!

(spoken) Why, Miss Elphaba, look at you. You’re beautiful.

ELPHABA(spoken) I – I have to go:

GALINDA
(spoken) You’re welcome!
(sung) And though you protest
Your disinterest
I know clandestinely
You’re gonna grin and bear it
Your new found popularity
La la la la
You’ll be popular –
Just not as quite as popular
As me!
