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 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

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 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...
It took time to understand him. I know him so well.
