[ELPHABA:]
I'm limited.
Just look at me.
I'm limited.
And just look at you.
You can do all I never could.
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 lead 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 maybe,
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'll have rewritten mine,
By being my friend.
Like a ship blown from it's mooring,
By a wind off the sea.
Like a sea 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 blamed 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 it's mooring,)
As it passes a sun.
(By a wind off the sea.)
Like a stream that meets a boulder,
(Like a sea dropped by 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.
