If you haven’t heard the song “For Good” from Wicked then you are missing out. Also if you haven’t heard it pop over and listen to it/watch it here, because if you don’t this post will be very confusing. . . . Did you go listen? Okay great!
So this song is legit one of my favorites from this musical, in fact I almost cry pretty much every time I hear it. Firstly, Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel are fabulous singers. Secondly the background track is amazing and it really adds to the emotions of the song. (If you can’t tell, I’m a huge music nerd so yea thats a thing).
“Because I knew you, I have been changed for good”
This is probably my favorite line of the song. If you listen to the lyrics of the song the two main characters who sing it have clearly had their differences, but they also realize that without the other person in their life they would not be who they are. Every time I listen to this song, I think about my friends and how they’ve impacted my life. A lot of my college/high school friends live 2+ hours away from me and the majority aren’t even in the same state, but when we hang out its like we’ve never been apart. I think back on all the late night chats with my roommate, or the allnighters writing papers, or the countless Bible Study nights when we talked about anything and everything.
I know that these people will be there for me through anything and that I can tell them anything. I also know that because I knew them, I have been changed for good.
Do you have a friend who has changed you for good? How long have you been friends? I’d love to hear about them!
