---VERSE 1 (hold each chord)

D             G
Something has changed within me
D            G
Something is not the same
D                G              D
I'm through with playing by the rules
   G       C
Of someone else's game
C                   Dsus2
Too late for second-guessing
C                      Dsus2
Too late to go back to sleep
C            Bm7
It's time to trust my instincts
G                 Asus2 (start strumming) A
Close my eyes and leap

---CHORUS 1

             Bm7
It's time to try
  G       Asus2
Defying gravity
             Bm7
I think I'll try
  G       A
Defying gravity
                      D
And you can't pull me down

---VERSE 2

D             G
I'm through accepting limits
Dsus2        G            Asus2
'Cuz someone says they're so
D             G
Some things I cannot change
     Dsus2            C     Asus2
But 'till I try, I'll never know
C                  Dsus2
Too long I've been afraid of
C               D
Losing love - I guess I have lost
G               Dsus2
Well, if that's love
            C               A
It comes at much too high a cost

---CHORUS 2

           Bm7
I'd sooner buy
   G      Asus2
Defying gravity
            Bm7
Kiss me goodbye
      G       A
I'm defying gravity
                      D
And you can't pull me down

---(transition)

C          G
And if I'm flying solo
C            D
At least I'm flying free
C              G
To those who'd ground me
       C                 A
Take a message back from me -

---REPEAT CHORUS/OUTRO

              Bm7
Tell them how I
     G       Asus2
Am defying gravity
           Dsus2
I'm flying high
  G       A
Defying gravity
              Bm7
Tell them how I
     G       Asus2
Am defying gravity
                      D (slow down stroke)
And you can't pull me down

i noticed there were no tabs for this song yet, so i had to give it a shot. i've only 
playing for a couple months, so this is a very simplified version. it sounds really good 
me when it's slowed down quite a bit from the original. hope y'all like it. :)

In my version it's tuned a half step down, but the chords are all correct.
Good Job!

Yes, I believe it's in C# in the original recording, correct? Which makes this a very different feeling interpretation. But, if you put it to the live versions of her doing it, not bad.
