Rachel:
Something has changed within me,
Something is not the same.
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game.

Kurt:
Too late for second-guessing,
Too late to go back to sleep.
It's time to trust my instincts,
Close my eyes and leap.

Both:
It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye I'm
Defying Gravity
And you won't bring me down...

Rachel:
I'm through accepting limits
'Cause someone says they're so.

Kurt:
Some things I cannot change,
But till I try, I'll never know.

Rachel:
Too long I've been afraid of

Kurt:
Losing love I guess I've lost.

Both:
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.
I think I'll try
Defying Gravity
And you won't bring me down.

I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity.
Kiss me goodbye,
I'm defying gravity.
I think I'll try
Defying Gravity

And you won't bring me down.
Bring me down!
Ahhahhoahh

    Making your own truths, and not being limited by the truths of this world. '... Somethings i cannot change, but till i try i'll never know... '

    Not letting anybody drag you down while you are exceeding limits that others aren't and while you are doing what you want to do. ^. ^

    I'm not conforming to society's rules on what i should and should not do. I'm going to jump in feet first so i can discover my self, my individualism. Psh, forget you!

    Defying gravity is a way to pass by all those emotions that get you down and to stand strong even when life isn't so good.
