Wednesday’s Lyrics

I cry like a baby, on cue, every time when I hear this song, “For Good”, from the Broadway show, Wicked, The Musical.

Many years ago, I lost my partner, my best friend and my confidant, unexpectedly due to some unforeseen circumstances. During my grieving process, I stumbled upon this song and the lyrics resonated with me.  It made me realized that people did come to our lives for a reason, to help us to learn, and we all could become a better person.

So, I like to share the lyrics of this song, “For Good”, and participate in Wednesday’s Lyrics event, created by The Broken Spine for my #blogging101, assignment #13.

“For Good”, from Wicked,  The Musical:

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

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 re-written mine
By being my friend…
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood

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

  1. Charles (I love that name), Lyrics and music can touch so many feelings and memories within us. I remember seeing Wicked for the first time and when this song played out on stage, I sat crying in the darkened theatre. I’m crying now. I really hope that your life is filled with many more joys than sorrows. You are certainly a man who deserves the best of what life offers. Clare
