Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson - I know him so well
Tekst: Tim Rice / Muziek: Benny Andersson en Björn Ulvaeus (1984)






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
Oh, so good
Wasn’t he fine
Oh, so 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 move my world to be with him
Still the gap between us is too wide



Looking back, I could have played it differently
Looking back, I could have played things some other way
Learned about the man before I fell
I was just a little careless maybe
But I was ever 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, he won’t be mine
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
