I don't wanna talkAbout the things we've gone throughThough it's hurting meNow it's historyI've played all my cardsAnd that's what you've done tooNothing more to sayNo more ace to play
The winner takes it allThe loser standing smallBeside the victoryThat's a destiny
I was in your armsThinking I belonged thereI figured it made senseBuilding me a fenceBuilding me a homeThinking I'd be strong thereBut I was a foolPlaying by the rules
The gods may throw a diceTheir minds as cold as iceAnd someone way down hereLoses someone dear
The winner takes it allThe loser has to fallIt's simple and it's plainWhy should I complain?
But tell me, does she kissLike I used to kiss you?Does it feel the sameWhen she calls your name?Somewhere deep insideYou must know I miss youBut what can I say?Rules must be obeyed
The judges will decideThe likes of me abideSpectators of the showAlways staying low
The game is on againA lover or a friendA big thing or a smallThe winner takes it all
I don't wanna talkIf it makes you feel sadAnd I understandYou've come to shake my handI apologizeIf it makes you feel badSeeing me so tenseNo self-confidenceBut you see
The winner takes it allThe winner takes it all
So the winner takes it allAnd the loser has to fallThrow a dice cold as iceWay down here, someone weakTakes it all, has to fallYes, it's plainWhy complain?
