ELPHABA
I'm limited, just look at me I'm limited and look at you, you can do all I couldn't do Glinda, so now it's up to you (spoken):
for both of us (sung): 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 half way 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 it's 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 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 (same time as Elphaba)
Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes the sun, like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood

ELPHABA (same time as Glinda)
Like a ship blown off it's mooring by a wind off the sea, like a seed dropped by a skybird 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
