Musicals – Chess - I Know Him So Well lyrics
Florence:
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? Svetlana:
Oh, so good
Wasn't he fine?
Oh, so fine.
Isn't it madness?

Both:
He can't be mine?

Florence:
But in the end he needs
A little bit more than me--
More security.

Svetlana:
He needs his fantasy
And freedom.

Florence:
I know him so well.

Svetlana:
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.
Florence:
Looking back, I could Looking back, I could
Have played it differently. Have played it some other way.
Learned about the man
Before I fell. I was just a little careless,
But I was ever Maybe.
So much younger then. I was so much younger then.
Now at least
I know I know him well. I know I know him well.

Wasn't it good?
Oh, so good.
Wasn't he fine?
Oh, so fine.
Isn't it madness?

Both:
He won't be mine?
Didn't I know
How it would go?
If I knew from the start,
Why am I falling apart?

Svetlana:
Wasn't it good?
Wasn't he fine?

Florence:
Isn't it madness?

Both:
He won't be mine?

Florence:
But in the end he needs
A little bit more than me
More security.

Svetlana:
He needs his fantasy,
And freedom.

Florence:
I know him so well.

Svetlana:
It took time
To understand him.

Both:
I know him so well.
