John Barrowman – 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, wasn't he fine?
Isn't it madness, he can't be mine?
But in the end, he needs a little bit more than me
More security, I know him so well

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

Looking back I could've 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, wasn't he fine?
Isn't it madness, he can't be mine?
Didn't I know
How it would go if I knew from the start
Why, why am I falling apart?

He can't be mine
But in the end, he needs a little bit more than me
More security, I know him so well
It took time to understand him
I know him so well
