​I Know You Well

This song is by Christopher Cross and appears on the album Walking In Avalon (1998).

A good fight half won
A good scotch half gone
And I'll never win Mr. Congeniality
I BS'd once again
She acquiesced
And I got off on a technicality

I've always loved our little wars
Treaties we sign behind closed doors
I may concede but I will not bleed
I will not bleed

The James Dean, the prom queen
Impractical fascination
Having its way again
She knows Astaire's got nothing on me
When I take her out tonight
When I take her out tonight

I've always loved the way you dance
How you defy our circumstance
There may not be more than see
More than I see
C'est la vie

I know you well (You know me well)
I know you well (You know me well)
I know you well, boy
And before the dawn comes you'll be gone

Ell, it's symbiotic
It's a sweet narcotic
Not a futile search for romantic perfection
Well, that's too much trouble
So make mine a double
My head's a very scary neighborhood
Don't wanna walk it alone

I thought I had something more to say
Before you kissed my neck that way
I'll let it be
Well, that works for me
So c'est la vie
C'est la vie

I know you well (You know me well)
I know you well (You know me well)
I know you well, boy
And before the dawn comes you'll be gone

You know me well (I know you well)
You know me well (I know you well)
I know you well, girl
And tomorrow we might just move on
