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
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
