Verse:
Db             Ab
Something has changed within me
Db            Gb
Something is not the same
Db                Ab              Bbm
I'm through with playing by the rules
   Gb       
Of someone else's game
B            Db
Too late for second-guessing
B                      Db
Too late to go back to sleep
B            Db
It's time to trust my instincts
Gb                 Ab
Close my eyes and leap

Chorus:
             Bbm
It's time to try
  Gb     Db      Ab
Defying gravity
             Bbm
I think I'll try
  Gb     Db      Ab
Defying gravity
            Bbm
Kiss me goodbye
      Gb     Db      Ab
I'm defying gravity
                      Db
And you won't bring me down

Verse:
Db             Ab
I'm through accepting limits
Bbm             Gb 
'Cause someone says they're so
Db             Ab
Some things I cannot change
    Bbm                B
But 'till I try, I'll never know
B             Db
Too long I've been afraid of
B             Db
Losing love I guess I've lost
Gb               Bbm
Well, if that's love
            Ebm              Ab
It comes at much too high a cost

Chorus:
           Bbm
I'd sooner buy
   Gb    Db      Ab
Defying gravity
            Bbm
Kiss me goodbye
      Gb     Db      Ab
I'm defying gravity
             Bbm
I think I'll try
   Gb    Db      Ab
Defying gravity
                       B
And you won't bring me down

Chorus:
           Bbm
I'd sooner buy
   Gb    Db      Ab
Defying gravity
            Bbm
Kiss me goodbye
      Gb     Db      Ab
I'm defying gravity
             Bbm
I think I'll try
   Gb    Db      Ab
Defying gravity
                       Db
And you won't bring me down
         B                    Db
Bring me down, Oh oh oooooooh oh

  1. it’s “try defying gravity” and there’s a lot missing e.g. the “unlimited” part

  2. this appears to be the glee version and they omitted that section!
