Music: For Good

One great collaboration between two powerful belters and musical icons Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth. Definitely one of my favourite track from the award-winning Broadway and West End musical - The untold story of the Witches of Oz - Wicked. In fact if I will to make a song cover(hahaha feeling) this will definite be on top of my list, I just need to find someone who can sing Elphaba's line or solo might also work for me(lol).

Okay back to reality, here's a treat from the original cast members of Wicked. 


"For Good"


[Elphaba:]
I'm limited.
Just look at me.
I'm limited.
And just look at you.
You can do all I couldn't do.
Glinda...
So now it's up to you,
For both of us.
Now it's up to you.


[Glinda:]
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.
