the winner takes it all lyrics – corrs

music & lyrics by: abba (andersson/ulvaeus)

i don’t wanna talk
about 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 judges will decide
the likes of me abide
spectators of a show
always stand alone

the winner takes it all
the loser standing small
beside the victory
that’s her destiny

so 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
their minds as cold as ice
and someone way down here
loses someone dear

the winner takes it all
the loser standing small
it’s simple and it’s plain
why should i complain

i don’t wanna talk
if it makes you feel sad
and i understand
you’ve come to shake my hand
i apologise
if it makes you feel sad
seeing me so tense
no self-confidence
(but you see)

the winner takes it all
the loser standing small
beside the victory
that’s her destiny

the winner takes it all (so the winner)
(takes it all)
the winner takes it all (and the loser)
(has to fall)

the winner takes it all (so the winner)
(takes it all)
the winner takes it all (and the loser)
(has to fall)

the winner takes it all (so the winner)
the loser standing small (takes it all)
beside the victory (and the loser)
that’s her destiny (has to fall)

the winner takes it all
