Default Song for the Moment

I was listening to Wicked on my way home from work today and this song came on. I guess after the last week it hit me how much the people here are like a second family to me and how much you all mean to me. Thanx for being my friends and always finding ways of cheering or even just lending an ear when needed!!

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 a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better
Because I knew you, I have been changed for good

Elphaba
It well may be
That we will never meet again in this life time
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 hand print on my heart
And now what ever way our stories end
I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend

Like a ship blown from it's 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 any more

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood

Like a ship blown from it's 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
Because I knew you
I have been changed for good

My dear Katerling, this world is a far better place merely through virtue of you being within it. Know you not this?
