nobody wins lyrics – elton john

n*body wins

music by jean-paul dreau . lyrics by gary osborne

they must have loved each other one
but that was many years ago
and by the time i came along
things were already going wrong
i felt the pain in their pretence
the side they tried hard not to show
but through the simple eyes of youth
it wasn’t hard to see the truth

and in the end n*body wins
when love begins to fall apart
and it’s the innocent who pay
when broken dreams get in the way
the game begins
the game n*body wins

they must have loved each other one
before the magic slipped away
and as their life became a lie
what love remained began to die
i used to hide beneath the sheets
i prayed that time would find a way
but with the p*ssing of the years
i watched as laughter turned to tears

and in the end n*body wins
when love begins to fall apart
and it’s the innocent who pay
when broken dreams get in the way
the game begins
the game n*body wins

we used to love each other one
with all the p*ssion we possessed
but people change as time goes by
some feelings grow while others die
but if we learn from what we see
and face the truth while we still can
then though the p*ssion may be gone
some kind of love can still live on

and in the end n*body wins
when love begins to fall apart
and it’s the innocent who pay
when broken dreams get in the way
the game begins
the game n*body wins

n*body wins
n*body wins
la la la l
and it’s the innocent who pay
when broken dreams get in the way
the game begins
the game n*body wins
