Video 16 Jan 39 notes

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,
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’d 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

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. 

"I Know Him So Well" by Barbara Dickson and Elaine Paige from the musical "Chess"
