‘Not what we’d planned (reprise)’

Amanda:   I now see that good or bad is more a state of mind.
                  Even a cruel blow can be kind.
                  I take each life event no longer as punishment,
                  Where once I believed the fault was mine.

Sam:         All I wanted was to have the money and the time.
                  I don’t see that that was such a crime.
                  I tried to do you good. Seems I’m misunderstood.
                  I’m better with the devil that I know.

Both:                   It’s not what we’d planned; it’s not what we’d planned.
Amanda:             I’m thankful now, I have to say.
Sam:                   Life it conspired against what I desired.
Amanda:             I’m happy where I am today.
