The Winner Takes It All - ABBA

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 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 dont 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

The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all
