i know him so well

Tuesday, April 7th, 2020

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 fantasies 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
Now, at least, I know I know him well

(overlapping above)
Looking back, I could have played it some other way
I was just a little careless, maybe
I was so much younger then
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
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 him
I know him so well

From the musical “Chess”; original recording by Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson

get in the car and drive

Friday, February 15th, 2019

In the picture, you’re right beside me
Arms around my neck and eyes like you’ll never leave
A love lover, a sweet thing
I know we agreed but I think I’ll call you anyway, uh-huh

Well hello it’s just me
A little distance and I lost something in between
I’ve waited forever
For this to get better
You said “why should I believe in something
I can’t see or feel with my fingers?
Yeah why should I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive”

We hold on, take it slowly
Breathing deep and meaning every word for just you only
Keep this inside of you, no matter what you do
These are the simple things in loving you
The simple things in loving you

And you said “how can I believe in something
When you’re never here? I’m not even sure I need this.
How can I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive”

I’ve waited forever
For this to get better
And you said “why should I believe in something
I can’t see or feel with my fingers?
Yeah why should I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Get in the car and drive”

through the night

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Well you’re belted in the driver’s seat
And you push both pedals with both feet
And you dry your eyes on the cuff of your jacket sleeve
And you can’t you move forward through a veil of tears
And you can’t go back; anywhere but here seems too far away
But you’re scared you may never leave

Through the night, just get me through the night
Through the night, just get me through the night

When a heart breaks down
There ain’t no tomorrow
It’s here and now
Heartache and sorrow
You pray out loud just to survive
No, no, when a heart breaks down
No need to find a meaning
It’s all but gone
Yeah, what you’re needing
Is something strong that’ll numb your mind
To get you through the night
Get you through the night

When the only thing you want to see
Is this day gone
With no memory
Of what’s gone wrong;
To wake from a real bad dream

Through the night, just get me through the night
Through the night, just get me through the night

When a heart breaks down
You’re in for bad weather
It drags along
Lingers until there ain’t no song that can make it right
No, no, when a heart breaks down
No need to find a meaning
It’s all but gone
Yeah, what you’re needing is something strong that’ll numb your mind
Your mind
To get you through the night
Get you through the night

Through the night, just get me through the night
Through the night, just get me through the night

When a heart breaks down
The hell with tomorrow
It’s here and now
Heartache and sorrow
You pray out loud just to survive
No, no, when a heart breaks down
No need to find a meaning
It’s all but gone
Yeah, what you’re needing
Is something strong that’ll numb your mind, your mind
And get you through the night
Get you through the night
Get you through the night
Get you through the night
To get you through the night
