BENNY ANDERSSON lyrics - You And I

BENNY ANDERSSON
"You And I"

[The Russian:]
Knowing I want you
Knowing I love you
I can't explain
Why I remain
Careless about you

[Florence:]
I've been a fool to allow
Dreams to become
Great expectations

[The Russian:]
How can I love you so much
Yet make no move?

[Both:]
I pray the days and nights
In their endless weary procession
Soon overwhelm my sad obsession

You and I, we've seen it all
Chasing our hearts' desire
But we go on pretending
Stories like ours
Have happy endings

[The Russian:]
You could not give me
More than you gave me
Why should there be
Something in me
Still discontented

[Florence:]
I won't look back anymore
And if I do, just for a moment

[The Russian:]
I'd soon be happy to say:
"I knew her well"

[Both:]
But if you hear today
I'm no longer
Quite so devoted to this affair
I've been misquoted

You and I, we've seen it all
Chasing our hearts' desire
But we go on pretending
Stories like ours
Have happy endings
