Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson - 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
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

[FLORENCE]
Wasn't he fine?

[SVETLANA]
Oh so fine

[FLORENCE]
Isn't it madness?

[FLORENCE/SVETLANA]
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
Looking back I could have played it differently

[FLORENCE]
Looking back I could have played it some other way

[SVETLANA]
Learned about the man before I fell

[FLORENCE]
I was just a little careless maybe
[SVETLANA]
But I was ever so much younger then

[FLORENCE]
Now at least I know him well

[SVETLANA]
Now at least I know I know him well

[SVETLANA]
Wasn't it good?

[FLORENCE]
Oh so good

[SVETLANA]
Wasn't he fine?

[FLORENCE]
Oh so fine

[SVETLANA]
Isn't it madness

[SVETLANA/FLORENCE]
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

[SVETLANA/FLORENCE]
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

[FLORENCE/SVETLANA]
I know him so well
