Average: 3.9 (14 votes)

This song is about what we learn from our relationships with others and how these relationships change the person we are. It is from the successful musical, Wicked. Listen to the song and complete the gaps with the correct word.

Note: please tell me if there is a singer, band, or song that you would like a lesson on. I’m always looking for new ideas!

Wicked 'For Good' Lyrics

(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 _1_
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to _2_
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I _3_ 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 _4_ that meets a boulder
_5_ 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 _6_
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 _7_ on my heart
And now whatever way our _8_ 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) I have been changed for good

(Elphaba) And just to clear the air
I ask _9_
For the thing I've done you blame me for

(Glinda) But then, I guess we know
There's blame to _10_

(Both) And none of it seems to matter anymore
