I Know Him So Well
Barbara DicksonUna de mis preferencias musicales del inolvidable año de 1986. Canción del musical Chess de Tim Rice (autor de Evita), Benny Andersson y Björn Ulvaeus (Abba). La versión original está cantada por Elaine Paige y Barbara Dickson en el papel de Svetlana, la mujer del campeón de ajedrez, y Florence, su amante. La extraña subida de tono del final hay que agradecérsela a John Barrowman, quien también la cantó, y sobre cuya versión se diseñó el acompañamiento.



I Know Him So Well

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
(Much younger then)
Now at least I know him well
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 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 it
I know him so well
