Whitney Houston – I Know Him So Well lyrics

I know him so well

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

Chorus:
Wasn't it good (Wasn't it good)
Wasn't he fine (Wasn't it fine)
Isn't it madness, he can't be mine
But in the end, he needs a little bit more than me
For 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 moved my world to be with him
Still the gap between us is too wide...
Looking back (Looking back), I could've played it differently (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...

Chorus:
Wasn't it good (oh so good)
Wasn't he fine (so 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 (Wasn't it fine)
Isn't it madness, he can't be mine
But in the end, he needs a little bit more than me
For security (he needs his fantasy and freedom)
I know him so well....

It took some time to understand him
I know him so well

    This song is stating exactly what I am feeling right now. You fall in love with someone, so quickly and so easily without getting to know them first. It is the idea of being close to him and being his one and only that fascinates you. In the beginning everything is good and beautiful, but nothing last forever. Maybe, just maybe if I took the time to learn about him, to know him better, then I would not be falling apart like this!
