[Digest] For Good

发布时间: 2017年05月28日 浏览次数: 编辑: 李秋雨

编者按:本次我们为你节选的诗歌,出自音乐剧《魔法坏女巫》。剧中的两个女孩在命运的安排下相遇,从互不喜欢,到互相关心。最终两人无奈分离,便在这首歌里吐露真心。

相遇是一件妙不可言的事,生命中总有人来过又离开,有人离开又重来。我们就在一个个相遇中,跌跌撞撞地成长着,然后变成今天的自己。

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…

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

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

Because I knew you

I have been changed for good
