Because I Knew You 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 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 THEN 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 THE SUN
LIKE A STREAM THAT MEETS A BOULDER
HALFWAY THROUGH THE WOOOD
WHO CAN SAY IF I'VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
BUT BECAUSE I KNEW YOU
I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE 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 RE-WRITTEN 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

[At the same time]
Glinda:
LIKE A COMET PULLED FROM ORBIT
AS IT PASSES A SUN
LIKE A STREAM THAT MEETS A BOULDER
HALWAY THROUGH THE WOOD
Elphaba:
LIKE A SHIP BLOWN OFF IT'S 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

Glinda:
AND BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

Elphaba:
BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

Both:
BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...
I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR GOOD.

Elphaba:
I'M LIMITED
JUST LOOK AT ME -- I'M LIMITED
