6   -6    -7    7    5

I don't wanna talk

5   -5      6      -6      -6        6

About things we've gone through

6    -5   5    -4    -5

Though it's hurting me

6     -5   5  -4  -5

Now it's his-tor-y

6      -6      -7    7     5

I've played all my cards

5    -5       6      -6       -6       6

And that's what you've done too

6    -5     5    -4    -5

Nothing more to say

6    -5     5   -4   -5

No more ace to play


3     3  -5     -5    5   5

The winner takes it all

2     2  -4   -4     4       4

The loser's standing small

-6  -6   9   9  -9  -9

Beside the victory

-9      8  -8   8  -9

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 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

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

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

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

The winner takes it all

So the winner takes it all

And the loser has to fall

Throw the dice, cold as ice

Way down here, someone dear

Takes it all, has to fall

And it's plain, why complain
