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

I wish that I knew how to hate you
Or maybe not to give a damn
How do you make leaving graceful?
I’m giving up the best I can

I might be no good
Sweetie, you’re no better
We used to be sugar and now all I taste is bitter
I might be no good
Sweetie, you’re no better
Sweetie, you’re no better

I thought you’d be the one to save me
Honey, you’re not worth the tears
There’s no need to drive me crazy
Honey, I can walk from here

I wish that I knew how to say this
Cutting up the lines we blurred
The space in between love and friendship
It’s beautiful until it hurts

I thought you’d be the one to save me
Honey, you’re not worth the tears
There’s no need to drive me crazy
Honey, I can walk from here

I might be no good
Sweetie, you’re no better
We used to be sugar and now all I taste is bitter
I might be no good
Sweetie, you’re no better
Sweetie, you’re no better

I thought you’d be the one to save me
Honey, you’re not worth the tears
There’s no need to drive me crazy
Honey, I can walk from here

I thought you’d be the one to save me
Honey, you’re not worth the tears
There’s no need to drive me crazy
Honey, I can walk from here

As I sit, looking out the window
I can still remember
They called me to tell me
You went away
It was such a cold day

Early Sunday morning
It came without a warning
And all that pain I felt inside
I just can’t forget you
I’m feeling so alone
Though many times I’ve tried
Can’t get you off my mind

I’m thinking of you
Wonder where you are tonight
I wish I could hold you tight
I’m thinking of you
I wish you could stay
But you’re so far away
So far away

And even though you’re gone
I know you’re happy where you are
And I know some day
We’ll be together, together again
But until that day
I’m thinking of you

Early Sunday morning
It came without a warning
And all that pain I felt inside
I just can’t forget you
I’m feeling so alone
Though many times I’ve tried
Can’t get you off my mind

I’m thinking of you
Wonder where you are tonight
I wish I could hold you tight
I’m thinking of you
I wish you could stay
But you’re so far away
So far away

I know some day I’ll hold you again
You and me, together again
But until that day, I’m thinking of you

I’m thinking of you
Wonder where you are tonight
I wish I could hold you tight
I’m thinking of you
I wish you could stay
But you’re so far away

I’m thinking of you
Wonder where you are tonight
I wish I could hold you tight
I’m thinking of you
I wish you could stay
But you’re so far away
So far away
