Abba – The Winner Takes It All

Abba – The Winner Takes It All

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’s 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
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 (will decide)
The likes of me abide (me abide)
Spectators of the show, always staying low
The game is on again (on 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

So the winner takes it all
And the the loser has to fall
Throw a dice, cold as ice
Way down here, someone dear
Takes it all, has to fall….

Een gedicht
Schreef zij voor haar moeder
In nachtelijke uren
Vol verdriet en verraad
Verloren was zij
In een relatie die haar moeder verkoos
Boven haar eigen kind
Vol verdriet en verlating
kon zij gaan
Zonder liefde of steun
Liep ze weg
meerdere malen
De titel was
The winner takes it all
En toen zij weg was
Woonde de vriend
Binnen een week
Al in huis
Opgeruimd staat netjes zal hij gedacht hebben
Haar kamer was nu de zijne
Zij kon haar ziel bijeen rapen
In stukken uiteen gespat
Weggegooid bij het oud vuil
Als kind van 17
No one loved her
Dat was de boodschap haar leven lang
Van iedereen rondom
