about

Cover of "For Good" from the Broadway musical "Wicked," originally sung by Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth

lyrics

I've heard it said that people come into our lives
For a reason, bringing something we must learn
And we are lead 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, but 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
So 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 of 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

And just to clear the air, I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for
But then I guess we know there's blame to share
And none of it seems to matter anymore

Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes the sun
(Like a ship blown from its mooring by a wind of the sea)
Like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood
(Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood)

Who can say if I've been changed for the better
I do believe I have been changed for the better, and
Because I knew you, because I knew you,
Because I knew you, I have been changed for good
