WICKED

2 Comments

For Christmas my parents bought all of us (my Grandpa, Brother’s, Sister’s and Spouses) 4th row tickets to WICKED at Capitol Theatre. The show was fantastic! For some reason I got really emotional watching it this time. I cried 3 different times throughout the show. I looked over at Beau and told him “I hope I am not pregnant”. One of the songs that touched me the most was “For Good”. I listed the lyrics below. My thoughts were turned to my cute Sister in Law Amy who lost her brother about 2 months ago in a tragic plane accident. She was with us at WICKED that evening and I couldn’t help but think of her during this song. My heart was so touched by the words. I was trying not to bawl. I truly loved the message of this show…It was such a great story about loving people even if they are different from us. Thanks Mom for such a wonderful experience! I have been “changed for the better” after seeing it! If you haven’t heard this song, I highly recommend getting the CD! You won’t be disappointed!

You’re the only friend I’ve ever had.

And I’ve had so many friends. But only one– that mattered.
(sings)
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 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 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 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…

GLINDA
BECAUSE I KNEW YOU…

BOTH
BECAUSE I KNEW YOU
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

GLINDA

LIKE A COMET PULLED FROM
ORBIT/AS IT PASSES A SUN/
LIKE A STREAM THAT MEETS A
BOULDER/ HALF-WAY
THROUGH THE WOOD

ELPHABA

LIKE A SHIP BLOWN OFF ITS
MOORING/BY A WIND OFF THE
SEA/ LIKE A SEED DROPPED BY A
BIRD IN
THE WOOD

___

BOTH
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.
