Because I knew you…

June 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

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 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… 

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 

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

Like a ship blown from its mooring 
By a wind off the sea 
Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood 

Who can say if I’ve been 
Changed for the better? 
I do believe I have been 
Changed for the better 

And because I knew you… 

Because I knew you… 

Because I knew you… 
I have been changed for good…

Song : For Good.
