1. vers

Bb
⁠Nothing is so
F7/C
⁠good it lasts
Bb/D
⁠eternally,
Bb
F/A
Gm
⁠Perfect situations
Gm/F
⁠must go
Eb
⁠wrong,
Bb/F
⁠But this has
F/Eb
⁠never yet pre
Eb
⁠vented me,
Bb/D
Cm
⁠Wanting far too
Cm/Bb
⁠much, for far too
F
⁠long,

2. vers

Bb
⁠Looking back, I
F7/C
⁠could have played it
Bb/D
⁠differently,
Bb
F/A
Gm
⁠Won a few
Gm/F
⁠more moments, Who can
Eb
⁠tell,
Bb/F
⁠But it took
F/Eb
⁠time to under
Eb
⁠stand the man,
Bb/D
Cm
⁠Now at least I
Cm/Bb
⁠know I know him
F
⁠well

Ref


Wasn't it
Bb
⁠good? (Oh so good)

Wasn't he
Eb/Bb
⁠fine? (Oh so fine)

Isn't it
Ebm/Bb
⁠madness, he can't be
Bb
⁠mine?
Ebm6/Gb

But
Bb
⁠in the end he
F/A
⁠needs a little bit
Gm
⁠more than me,
C7/E
⁠More se
Bb/F
⁠curity, He needs his
F7/Eb
⁠fantasy and
Eb
⁠freedom,

I
Eb/F
⁠know him
F7
⁠so
Bb
⁠well

⁠No one in your
F7/C
⁠life is with you
Bb/D
⁠constantly,
Bb
F/A
Gm
⁠No one is com
Gm/F
⁠pletely on your
Eb
⁠side,
Bb/F
⁠ And though I'd
F/Eb
⁠move my world to
Eb
⁠be with him
Bb/D
Cm
⁠Still the gap bet
Cm/Bb
⁠ween us is too
F
⁠wide

Cm
⁠Now at least I
Cm/Bb
⁠know, I know him
F
⁠well
