The Winner Takes It All


1. I don't wanna talk
   About the things we've gone through
   Though it's hurting me
   Now it's history

   I've played all my cards
   And that's what you've done too
   Nothing more to say
   No more ace to play

R: The winner takes it all
   The loser standing small
   Beside the victory
   That's her destiny

2. I was in your arms
   Thinking I belonged there
   I figured it made sense
   Building me a fence
   Building me a home
   Thinking I'd be strong there
   But I was a fool
   Playing by the rules

R1: The gods may throw a dice
    Their minds as cold as ice
    And someone way down here
    Loses someone dear
    The winner takes it all
    The loser has to fall
    It's simple and it's plain
    Why should I complain.

3. But tell me does she kiss
   Like I used to kiss you?
   Does it feel the same
   When she calls your name?
   Somewhere deep inside
   You must know I miss you
   But what can I say
   Rules must be obeyed

4. The judges will decide
   The likes of me abide
   Spectators of the show
   Always staying low
   The game is on again
   A lover or a friend
   A big thing or a small
   The winner takes it all

5. I don't wanna talk
   If it makes you feel sad
   And I understand
   You've come to shake my hand
   I apologize
   If it makes you feel bad
   Seeing me so tense
   No self-confidence

   But you see
   G   D      Ami   D
   The winner takes it all
   The winner takes it all...
