Day 189


Thanks to Zach, I finally have Mirror, Mirror to read. It's by the same author who wrote Wicked and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister. Wicked is my favorite by far! And if you haven't seen the Broadway musical they made over the book, well you're missing out!

I'm going to count down my three (subject to change) favorites from the musical.

#3 "Defying Gravity"

"I'm through with accepting limits 'cause someone says they're so. Some things I cannot change, but until I try I'll never know!"

This sounds better on the soundtrack. It's a tad different here on the live version.



#2 "No Good Deed"

"Let all of Oz be agreed, I'm WICKED through and through."

This is the most energetic song that's performed. Given, it's very morbid. But the band does such a good job with this piece! I wanna meet the composer who did this music...

#1 "For Good"

This is mine and bran's song. (Yes, we're best friends with a song. Deal with it.)

"You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart."






(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?
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 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


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

(Elphaba):
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

(Glinda):
And because
