Nothing is so good it lasts eternally
Perfect situations must go wrong
But this has never yet prevented me
Wanting far too much for far too long.
Looking back I could have played it differently
One of few more moments who can tell
But it took time to understand the man
Now at least I know I know him well.
Wasn't it good? oh so good
Wasn't he fine? oh so fine
Isnt it madness he can't be mine?
But in the end he needs
A little bit more than me
More she needs security
He needs his fantasy and freedom
I know him so well.

No one in your life is with you constantly
No one is completely on your side
And though I move my world to be with him
Still the gap between us is too wide.

Looking back I could have played it differently
Could have played things some other way.
Learn about the man before I fell
I was just a little careless
But I was ever so much younger then.
I was so much younger then
Now at least I know I know him well
Wasn't it good? oh so good
Wasn't he fine? oh so fine
Isnt it madness he wont be mine?
Didn't I know how it would go?
If I knew from the start
Why am I falling apart?
Wasn't he fine? isn't it madness
He wont be mine?
But in the end he needs a little bit more than me
More she needs security
He needs his fantasy and freedom
I know him so well
It took time to understand me
I know him so well.
