FOR GOOD by WICKED

Last night, Brian and I saw WICKED, the song FOR GOOD, made me think of Ian. Here are the words... And while I may not always feel it or show it.. But because of him I am better and changed for good.

I'm limited
Just look at me -- I'm limited
And just look at you--
You can do all I couldn't do, (Ian)...

Because now it's up to you
For both of us--
Now it's up to you

I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And at 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 a 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 know you
I have been l changed for good...

It will 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 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 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...

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 a sun/
Like a stream that meets a
Boulder/ half-way
Through the wood

Like a ship blown off its
Mooring/by a wind off the
Sea/ 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...
I have been changed for the good.
