I Know Him So Well




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

Learned a little more before I fell

But it took time to understand the man

Now at least I know I know him well.



FLORENCE:                          SVETLANA:



Wasn't it good?                 Oh so good

Wasn't he fine?                 Oh so fine

Isn't it madness

He can't be mine?               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.



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:                          SVETLANA:



Looking back I could            Looking back I could

Have played things              Have played it

Some other way.                 Differently.



                                Won a few

                                More moments

                                Who can tell?

I was just a little

Careless -- maybe.

                                But I was

                                Ever so much

Now at least                    Younger then.

I know him well.                Now at least



BOTH:



I know I know him well.



SVETLANA:                          FLORENCE:



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?



FLORENCE:                          SVETLANA:



                                Wasn't it good?

                                Wasn't he fine?

Isn't it madness

He won't be mine?               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 



BOTH:



I know him so well.
