I know him so well

"Я так хорошо его знаю". Дуэт из мюзикла Шахматы. Там о нем всё рассказано - по ссылке.
Ну и добавлю по-английски:
Musical Chess by Tim Rice, Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. It was originally sung by Elaine Paige (as Florence) and Barbara Dickson (as Svetlana). 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.

Elaine Paige, Barbara Dickson


Amanda Holden, Sheridan Smith

Steps

Whitney&Cissy Houston


FLORENCE

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?

SVETLANA
Oh, so good!

FLORENCE
Wasn't he fine?

SVETLANA
Oh, so fine!

FLORENCE
Isn't it madness?

BOTH
He can't be mine?

FLORENCE
But in the end he needs a little bit more
Than me, more security,

SVETLANA
He needs his fantasy and freedom,

FLORENCE
I know him so well!

SVETLANA
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

FLORENCE
Looking back I could have played it some other way.

SVETLANA
Learned about the man before I fell,

FLORENCE
I was just a little careless maybe,

SVETLANA
But I was ever so much younger then

FLORENCE
Now at least I know him well,

SVETLANA
Now at least,

BOTH
I know I know him well!

SVETLANA
Wasn't it good?

FLORENCE
Oh, so good!

SVETLANA
Wasn't he fine?

FLORENCE
Oh, so fine!

SVETLANA
Isn't it madness?

BOTH
He won't be mine?
Didn't I know,
How it would go?
If I knew from the start,
Why am I falling apart?

SVETLANA
Wasn't it good?
Wasn't he fine?

FLORENCE
Isn't it madness?

BOTH
He won't be mine?

FLORENCE
But in the end he needs a little bit more
Than me, more security!

SVETLANA
He needs his fantasy and freedom,

FLORENCE
I know him so well!

SVETLANA
It took time to understand him,

BOTH
I know him so well!..
