chess.


Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson - I know him so well (from the musical Chess)
Uploaded by oliehoek
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

a beautiful song, with heartfelt, well-written lyrics.

(from wiki) In this duet, two women – Svetlana, the Russian chess champion's estranged wife, and Florence, his mistress – express their bittersweet feelings for him and at seeing their relationships fall apart.
