ABBA

ABBA – The Winner Takes It All

Verse 1:
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

Chorus:
The winner takes it all
The loser’s standing small
Beside the victory
That’s her destiny

Verse 2:
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

Chorus:
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 (Takes it all)
The loser has to fall (Has to fall)
It’s simple and it’s plain (It seems plain)
Why should I complain? (Why complain)

Verse 3:
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

Chorus:
The judges will decide (They decide)
The likes of me abide (We abide)
Spectators of the show (Of the show)
Always staying low (Staying low)
The game is on again (On again)
A lover or a friend (Or a friend)
A big thing or a small (Big or small)
The winner takes it all (Takes it all)

Verse 4:
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 bad
Seeing me so tense, no self-confidence

Bridge:
But you see, the winner takes it all
The winner takes it all

Outro:
(So the winner)
(Takes it all)
(And the loser)
(Has to fall)
(Throw a dice)
(Cold as ice)
(Way down here)
(Someone dear)
(Takes it all)
(Has to fall)
(It seems plain)
(Why complain)
