Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson – I Know Him So Well lyrics

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
Won a 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!
Isn't it madness
He can't be mine?

But in the end he needs a little bit more than me
More 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
Learned about the man before I fell.
But I was ever 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!
Isn't it madness
He won't be mine?

Didn't I know how it would go if I knew from the start
Why am I falling apart?

Wasn't it good?
Wasn't he fine?
Isn't it madness
He won't be mine?

But in the end he needs a little bit more than me
More security...
He needs his fantasy and freedom
I know him so well.

It took time to understand him.

I know him so well.
