Sissel Kyrkjebø & Tommy Körberg – You and I (from Chess) – 1989 [CC]


Knowing I want you
knowing I love you I can’t explain Why I remain
careless about you I’ve been a fool to allow
dreams to become Great expectations How can I love you so much
yet make no move? 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 You could not give me
more than you gave me Why should there be
something in me Still discontented I won’t look back anymore
and if I do-just for a moment I’d soon be happy to say
I knew her well 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

  1. A lovely duet, and song, thanks for sharing. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-James-J-McQuitty/e/B00J7QW5CE/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1510316116&sr=8-1

  2. I would so love a full recording of this cast of Chess, my favourite musical. I was lucky enough to be in an amdram production in the 90s, with a perfect cast who had me in tears every night, andstruggle listening to the original-cast recording I have because it can't compete- partly due to the later very Russian-style harmonies being glaringly missing on some songs. Of those clips of performances on line, too many seem to be forgetting to FEEL the songs, not just show off how well they can sing. Give me a natural actor at the cost of an occasional slight musical imperfection any time, but these two seem to excel at both.
