Maybe you’re not as powerful as you think you are.

(Suddenly, on a balcony high above, we see MADAME MORRIBLE)

 

[MADAME MORRIBLE, spoken]

Citizens of Oz! There is an enemy who must be found and captured. Believe nothing she says! She’s evil, responsible for the mutilation of these poor innocent monkeys!

 

[GLINDA, spoken]

Oh no--

 

[MADAME MORRIBLE, spoken]

Her green skin is but an outward manifestorium of her twisted nature. This-- distortion, this-- repulsion, this-- Wicked Witch!

 

[GLINDA, spoken]

Don’t be afraid.

 

[ELPHABA, spoken]

(a discovery)

I’m not. It’s the Wizard who should be afraid. Of me.

 

[GLINDA, spoken]

Elphie, listen to me. Just say you’re sorry. Before it’s too late…

(sings)

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 --

(sings)

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 elses 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

'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...

 

(LOUD POUNDING FROM BELOW...)

 

[GUARD’S VOICES]

Open this door--! In the name of His Supreme Ozness!

 

(Elphaba grabs the book of spells, pages through it furiously—)

 

[GLINDA, spoken]

What are you doing?

 

(Elphaba finds a page, immediately starts to CHANT FEVERISHLY UNDER HER BREATH—)

 

[GLINDA, spoken]

Stop it! That’s what started all this in the first place, that hideous

Levitation Spell!

 

(Elphaba ignores her, continues chanting...)

 

[GLINDA, spoken]

STOP!

 

(Glinda covers her face, frightened to see the results of the chanting. Elphaba stops.

Glinda uncovers her face. Then—)

 

[GLINDA, spoken]

Well? Where are your wings?

(beat)

Maybe you’re not as powerful as you think you are.
