ABBA


The Winner Takes It All Lyrics

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
(Takes it all)
The loser has to fall
(Has to fall)
It's simple and it's plain
(Yes, 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
(Decide)
The likes of me abide
(Abide)
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
(Staying low)

The game is on again
(All 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)

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

Someone winner
Takes it all
And one loses
Has to fall

From a guide
From the side
Makes that feeling
Someone here

Takes it all
Has to fall
This is magic
Someone here

very awful thing in the world are divorced men, cos they leave their children, i never respect them, children never will feel really love to such kind of fathers, the guys of the band left their families and they are very bad in my opinion
