I don't wanna talk
About the 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 don't 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
                                But you see
                                The winner takes it all
                                The winner takes it all...
