Nothing is so good it lasts eternally
(Perfect situations must go wrong (
But this has never yet prevented me (
From wanting far too much, for far too long
((
Looking back, I could have done 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 for 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 am I falling apart ((

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 for security (
I know him so well

((It took some time to understand him (
Ooh, I know him so well
