The Winner Takes It All


The Winner Takes It All - Wildlife

Written by:Benny Andersson/Bjorn Ulvaeus

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's 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 the 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


Takes it all


Has to fall


And it's plain
