Wicked!

Did I post this already? I can’t remember, ah well its worth a 2nd post 😛 Although this really is so much better in person!

Amazingly, apparently she was just getting over bronchitis at the time of this performance!

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 have 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…

Elphaba: Glinda, come with me. Think of what we could do – together.

I’m Limited
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…
Well? Are you coming?

Glinda:
I hope you’re happy
Now that you’re choosing this…

Elphaba:
You too – 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…

Elphaba:
So 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!

  1. I loved Wicked! Going to the theatre and seeing something live is just a great experience 😀

  2. Yes! Though it comes in waves for me. I’ll see a bunch of meh shows and get bored but then I’ll see something awesome like Wicked and be really into it again

  3. we need to talk, geeky!

    i dont know if i liked it(wicked!) THAT much at the time lol. i am kinda really over the theatre, even Les Mis didnt really do it for me. Mind you, the 2 asian ones i went to see ( Rafta Rafta and erm….bollywood version of Wuthering Heights) maintained my interest for a lot longer than the rest. hmm maybe because theyre alot shorter.

    • So email me! or msg me! And really? I thought Wicked had a great story. The songs aside from a couple were a bit weak though.
