Song Meaning
Verse 1
why couldn't you have just stayed calm for once, instead of flying off the handle!
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!
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
So though I can't imagine how
I hope you're happy right now
Verse 4
Elphie, listen to me. Just say you're sorry
You can still be with the Wizard
What you've worked and waited for
You can have all you ever wanted:
Verse 5
I know
But I don't want it
No I can't want it
Verse 6
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!
Verse 7
It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!
Verse 8
Can't I make you understand?
You're having delusions of grandeur:
Verse 9
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 buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down:
Glinda, come with me
Think of what we could do, together
Verse 10
Together we're unlimited
Together we'll be the greatest team
There's ever been
Verse 11
Dreams, the way we planned 'em
Verse 12
If we work in tandem:
Verse 13
There's no fight we cannot win
Just you and I
Defying gravity
With you and I
Defying gravity
Verse 14
They'll never bring us down!
Are you coming?
Verse 15
I hope you're happy
Now that you're choosing this
Verse 16
You too
I hope it brings you bliss
Verse 17
I really hope you get it
And you don't live to regret it
Verse 18
I hope you're happy in the end
I hope you're happy, my friend:
Verse 19
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 renown!
And nobody in all of Oz
No Wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down!
Verse 20
I hope you're happy!
Verse 21
Look at her, she's wicked!
Get her!
Verse 22
Bring me down!
Verse 23
No one mourns the wicked
So we've got to bring her
Verse 24
