I don't want to talk
Though it's hurting me
I've played all my cards
Nothing more to say

The loser standing small
That's her destiny
I was in your arms
I figured it made sense
Building me a home
But I was a fool

Their minds as cold as ice
Loses someone dear
The loser has to fall
Why should I complain
But tell me does she kiss
Does it feel the same
Somewhere deep inside
But what can I say

The likes of me abide
Always staying low
A lover or a friend
The winner takes it all
I don't want to talk
And I understand
I apologize
Seeing me so tense
But you see
The winner takes it all
So the winner takes it all
Throw a dice, cold as ice
Takes it all, has to fall
