'The winner takes it all'

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


The winner takes it all

The loser standing small

Beside the victory

That's her destiny


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


The God may throw a dice

Their mind 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


But tell me does she kiss

Like I used to kiss you?

Does I 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


The judge 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


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, the winner takes it all...
