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)
Wasn't he fine? (SVETLANA: 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!

BOTH
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 things some other way)
Learned about the man before I fell
(FLORENCE : I was just a little careless maybe)
But I was ever so much younger then,
(FLORENCE : Now at least I know him well)
Now at least I know I know him well.

Wasn't it good? (FLORENCE : Oh so good)
Wasn't he fine? (FLORENCE : 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
Oh so good
Oh so fine

FLORENCE
Isn't it madness

BOTH
He won't be mine?

SVETLANA
But in the end he needs a little bit more than me,

FLORENCE
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
