"I Know Him So Well" as written by Tim Rice, Benny Goran Bror Andersson and Bjoern K. Ulvaeus....
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
One of 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 She needs 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
Could have played things some other way.
Learn about the man before I fell
I was just a little careless
But I was ever so much younger then.
I was so much younger then
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 he fine? Isn't it madness
He won't be mine?
But in the end he needs a little bit more than me
More She needs security
He needs his Fantasy and freedom
I know him so well
It took time to understand me
I know him so well.

    General CommentA wonderful duet for two altos, although the lyrics don't make much sense out of the context of the musical. My friend and I sang this at an assembly, and afterwards had people who don't even like musicals come up and tell us how much they liked it
