For Good

For Good

Verse 1:

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…

Chorus 1:

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

Verse 2:

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 from 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…

Chorus 2:

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

Because I knew you

I have been changed for good


And just to clear the air

I ask forgiveness

For the things I’ve done you blame me for

But then, I guess we know

There’s blame to share

And none of it seems to matter anymore


This has been my favourite song for the past week. First heard it when I watched the musical ‘Wicked’. But did not have time to really listen to it again till last week.

Love this song as it is on the theme of friendship which is very close to my heart. Love the lyrics – about how relationships so much define who we are and how indeed iron sharpens iron. (Provbs 27:17)

I really love the second verse about how a friend leaves a ‘handprint’ on our hearts. It caused me to think about the friends I have made over of years. Some friends, though we are only together for a season, yet, I know that I have them close to my heart always because of the times we shared. Some of them have walked with me through difficult seasons and though we no longer meet up, yet the relationship is always there.

I remember fondly, my secondary friends, my JC friends, my history honours cum NIE friends, PRSS friends and NCSS friends. These people will always have a place in my heart and I really hold dear the memories which I have with them.

Then there are also people  who journey with you through the course of life. Loved ones like family, a few closer friends. Really want to take more time and effort to build relationships because it is an investment that goes beyond this lifetime into eternity.

Truly, one of my greatest joys in life is just simply talking to a friend(s) over coffee or a meal.
