For Good (Song)

Hope everyone’s doing well. I wanted to share this beautiful song that has touched me deeply. Hope you all like it♥

I’ve heard it said,
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn.

And we are led to those
Who help us most to grow if we let them.
And we help them in return.

Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you.

Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes the sun,
Like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood.

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good.

[Elphaba:]
It well may be
That we will never meet again in this lifetime.
So, let me say before we part:

So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you.
You’ll be with me like a handprint on my heart.

And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend.

Like a ship blown from its mooring by a wind off the sea.
Like a seed dropped by a sky bird in a distant wood.

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better
But because I knew you…

[Glinda:]
Because I knew you…

[Both:]
I have been changed for good.

[Elphaba:]
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done,
You blame me for.

[Glinda:]
But then I guess,
We know there’s blame to share.

[Both:]
And none of it seems to matter anymore.

Like a comet pulled from orbit
(Like a ship blown from its mooring)
As it passes the sun.
(By a wind off the sea)
Like a stream that meets a boulder
(Like a seed dropped by a bird)
Halfway through the wood.
(In the wood)

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better.
I do believe I have been changed for the better.

[Glinda:]
And because I knew you…

[Elphaba:]
Because I knew you…

[Both:]
Because I knew you
I have been changed…
For good.

    That song has been in my life for 13 and 1/12 years. That is how long Wicked has been in my life. First experience has been on Broadway and the other three on tour. Wicked truly has changed me “for good”.

        I have never seen an original cast on Broadway.

        Live in NC- so have to rely on tours. One of the things I do on my musical theatre blog is review shows I have seen.

        The last day of December, I saw Frozen II- I have a review for it on my blog.

      2. Still great that you can see the tours. I will head to your blog later and read your “Frozen 2” review.🤞
        Thank you😁 I’m watching “If/Then” tonight.
