Wicked Good

I am over the rainbow. I've been invited to see Wicked tomorrow night here in Milwaukee. In preparation, I've had the soundtrack plugged into my ears for the last few days. Such an amazing story of two strong women, two diversely yet equally powerful, uniquely bonded personalities. As I've listened to the music, certain verses from various songs are speaking to me.  I've compiled them here and added one word on the end.

Consider this Wicked me, Wicked good.

Ev'ry so often we long to steal
To the land of what-might-have-been
But that doesn't soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in

Too long I've been afraid
of losing love I guess I've lost,
It comes at much too high a cost
I'd sooner buy, defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye, I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down

Don't wish, don't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn't born for the rose and pearl
There's a girl I know
But I don't want it
No, I can't want it anymore

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

As someone told me lately:
Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who'd ground me
Take a message back from me
Tell them how I am
Defying gravity.

And nobody in all of Oz
No wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down.

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

Hands touch, eyes meet
Sudden silence, sudden heat
Hearts leap in a giddy whirl
He could be that boy
But I'm not that girl
