I love those lyrics...

This is a song I had in my collection for a while, listened to many times before, but only today did I really listen to the words.. I love them..
The song is called " 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?
Wasn't he 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

Learned about the man
Before I fell

I was just a little
Careless maybe

But I was
Ever so much
Younger then
Now at least
I know him well

He won't be mine?
Didn't I know
How it would go?
If I knew from the start
Why am I falling apart?

It took time to understand him
I know him so well
