We'll Meet Again by Vera Lynn

Indulge in some wartime nostalgia with this classic song by Vera Lynn. 'We'll Meet Again' is a famous song of the Second World War era, and its optimistic tone a resonant comfort for soldiers and their families and sweethearts who were separated by the war.
It's a perfect song for masking a heartbreak with a smile.


We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
'Till the blue skies
Drive the dark clouds far away

So, will you please say hello
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won't be long
They'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song...

For Good from Wicked

This duet, between the characters Elphaba and Glinda in the musical play Wicked, is inspired by the story of the Wizard of Oz.
It is sung at the end of the play, and reflects on how their friendship has changed them "for good", before they part:
"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"
