WICKED -- DEFYING GRAVITY

Monday, February 18, 2008


DEFYING GRAVITY

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
Cuz someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know



THIS WEEKEND I SAW WICKED FOR THE THIRD TIME. IT IS SUCH AN UPLIFTING AND INSPIRING MUSICAL. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE MUSICAL, IT'S THE "REAL STORY" OF ELPHEBA, THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST FROM THE WIZARD OF OZ. IT SHOWS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HER AND AND GLINDA, THE GOOD WITCH.

IT'S ALL ABOUT LEARNING TO ACCEPT WHO YOU ARE, ESPECIALLY FOR ELPHEBA. I'VE INCLUDED THE FIRST VERSE, THE CHORUS, AND PART OF THE SECOND VERSE OF THE SONG DEFYING GRAVITY WHICH REALLY CAPTURES THE SPIRIT OF THE PLAY.

IT'S ALSO WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT ON OUR JOURNEY WITH SPARK PEOPLE. WE'RE LEARNING TO OVERCOME OUR OWN LIMITS TO BE THE BEST PEOPLE WE CAN BE.

    The lyrics are great. I have seen the play advertised in our paper. It does look and sound good.

    I haven't seen it. I think I am getting closer to accepting who I am and well just figuring out who I am - now I can work on being the best me I can be.

    I've never even heard of his play before. I'll have to check it out. I love The Wizard of Oz. One of my faves!!!

    I've seen them perform a number from the play on one of the talk shows a few months ago. That is such an uplifting song. Thank you so much for sharing!

    That sounds very interesting. Someday I'd like to see more shows and such. Just don't seem to have the time right now. My kids activities keep us busy. My husband and I enjoy being there with them and have made a lot of great friends too. (So at least it's not torture!!)

    Thanks for sharing that with us. Have a good night!

    Oh my! That is my "fight" song! I saw Idina Menzel open in London, and that dong just blew me away! What a powerful message.
