Lyrics:
Rachel

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...

Kurt

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?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

Rachel

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 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

Kurt

Because I knew you

Both

I have been changed for good

Rachel

And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the thing I've done you blame me for

Kurt

But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share

Both

And none of it seems to matter anymore

Kurt

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

Rachel

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a bird 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

Kurt

And because I knew you...

Rachel

Because I knew you...

Both

Because I knew you...
I have been changed for good.

This song always makes me cry, I love the lyrics so much. I will be a puddle of tears on Tuesday, no matter how this is staged. It's just wonderful.

I think this is even better than "Defying Gravity", and it's a better vocal fit for both Chris and Lea. The part where their voices come together around 3:50 makes my spine tingle.

And between the costumes and the set, the staging will be epic.

This song really made me want to see Wicked! I've heard many Wicked songs I liked, but this one really did it for me!
I truly love it. Made me cry.

I always like a Hummel/Berry duet. Two powerful voices simply make a magnificent duet!
Can't wait to see the final episode on wednesday morning smile.gif (online)

If just listening to this made me cry, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be bawling while watching.

I ti a lot better. It better fits Chris's range and he has improved. Lea was terrific on both but this one works so much better as a duet too.
