"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
From wanting far too much for far too long
Looking back, I could have done 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 it fine
Isn't it madness he can't be mine
But in the end, he needs a little more than before
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
Learned about the man before I fell
But I was ever so much younger then

Wasn't it good (oh so good), Wasn't it fine (so fine)
Isn't it madness he can'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 fine
Isn't it madness he can't be mine
But in the end, he needs a little more than before
Security, he needs his fantasy and freedom
I know him so well
It took some to understand him
Hoo ooh I know him so well

    My InterpretationIt took her awhile to figure him out. Yes he is insecure and loves her so much. He needs his space and freedom of expressiveness ( lets say artistically speaking) but she has to TRUST that he is not cheating...she has to let him be and he will always come back to her he is hers. Its not the typical romantic relationship where he has to tell her I love you all the time and give her validation for her to be convinced. But on the other side he does distance himself to rebuilt passion between them and yes to trigger and get some form of validation so its a confirmation that they still got it ..the fire the passion the attention on the relationship...How else is he gonna keep this going and the excitement between them !!! He is giving her the Ultimate Romanticism ! No Boredom !
