Mr. Whitney — For Good lyrics

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.
And 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 wood.
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better.
Because I knew you. Because I knew you.
I have been changed for good.

It well may be, that we will never meet again,
In this life time, 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 of the sea,
Like a seed dropped by a sky bird, in a distant wood.

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better.
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 that 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.

Like a comet pulled orbit
(ship blown from it’s mooring by a wind of the sea)
Like a stream that meets a boulder
(like a seed dropped by a bird, in the wood) halfway through the wood.

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better.
I do believe I have been changed for the better.
Because I knew you. Because I knew you.
Because I knew you, I have been changed for
Good.
