"You Know So Well" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular....
Use every chance you've been given
She replied after several days
It's no good to be perfect
You know so well things are easy to tell
There is one thing I know
It goes like this
It's that when I lose my sleep it's you I miss

I have told you this before
And my transparent mind
Won't cover see-through hearts
I'll be straight with you now
Now I'm not what you want
Just like the rest
And you feel like you're subject to a test
But if there's one thing I know it's this
When I lose my sleep it's you I miss

You sleep all night
You know you lie awake
Tell me, yeah
And time is running out
And you know so well
It may never be

Use every chance you've been given
She is told, but it doesn't make her smile
She has no need to be perfect
She knows too well
Things are easy to tell
I have said what I thought you should know
But you never seem to recognize my face

    General Commentoh and the lyrics are wrong for the part
    instead of the first "it's that when i lose my sleep it's you i miss"
    it should be "it's that when i'm down and out it's you i miss"

    this song makes me incredibly sad cos i know exactly what its saying.

    General Commentwhat this song really touches on the fleetingness of relationships. the guy in the song has serious feelings and for whatever reason the girl maybe isn't aware of his feelings for her. time is running out and the guy knows that their feelings for each other will be secret if they part ways. sad but beautiful.

    General CommentI agree with a lot of what you said suclid, but I think she is fully aware about how he feels and she's acknowledged it...in fact, I go a step further; I think she knows how he feels, she acknowledges it, but she doesn't feel the same way and it tortures her:

    "You sleep all night
    you know you lie awake
    Tell me, yeah
    And time is running out
    and you know so well
    it may never be"

    My OpinionTo me this is about a man who could've gone far with his talent,but somebody points out how they like his work and he gives up thinking that he doesn't want to make something that that type of person would like.
