The Winner Takes It All [Alternate Take]
Lyrics and Meaning


Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I don't wanna talk
About the things we've gone through
Though it's hurting me
Now it's history
Verse 2
I've played all my cards
And that's what you've done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play
Verse 3
The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That's her destiny
Verse 4
I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Verse 5
Building me a home
Thinking I'd be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules
Verse 6
The Gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name
Verse 9
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed
Verse 10
The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
(Staying low)
Verse 11
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)
Verse 12
I don't wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You've come to shake my hand
Verse 13
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
Verse 14
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all
Verse 15
Someone winner
Takes it all
And one loses
Has to fall
Verse 16
From a guide
From the side
Makes that feeling
Someone here
Verse 17
Takes it all
Has to fall
This is magic
Someone here
