i’m a loser lyrics – marianne faithfull

of all the love i have won or have lost
there is one love i should never have crossed.
he was a boy in a million, my friend,
i should have known he would win in the end.

i’m a loser
and i lost someone who’s near to me.
i’m a loser
and i’m not what i appear to be.

although i laugh and i act like a clown,
beneath this mask i am wearing a frown.
my tears are falling like rain from the sky,
is it for him or myself that i cry?

i’m a loser
and i lost someone who’s near to me.
i’m a loser
and i’m not what i appear to be.

i’m a loser
and i lost someone who’s near to me.
i’m a loser
and i’m not what i appear to be.

what have i done to deserve such a fate?
i realise i have left it too late
and so it’s true pride comes before a fall,
i’m telling you so that you won’t lose all.

i’m a loser
and i lost someone who’s near to me.
i’m a loser
and i’m not what i appear to be.
i’m a loser.
