[Verse]
A              D
I don t wanna talk,
                       A
About the things we ve gone through
                   Em
Though its hurting me,
             A
Now its history
                   D
I ve played all my cards
                       A
And that s what you ve done too
                Em
Nothing more to say,
               A
No more ace to play


[Chorus]
                    D
The winner takes it all;
                   Bm
The loser standing small
                Em
Beside the victory;
                A
That s her destiny


[Verse]
              D
I was in your arms,
             A
Thinking I belonged there
                  Em
I figured it made sense;
              A
Building me a fence
              D
Building me a home,
                A
Thinking I d be strong there
            Em
But I was a fool;
               A
Playing by the rules


[Chorus]
                     D
The gods may throw a dice,
                       Bm
Their minds as cold as ice
                     Em
And someone way down here;
              A
Loses someone dear
                    D
The winner takes it all;
                 Bm
The loser has to fall
                    Em
It s simple and its plain;
                A
Why should I complain?


[Verse]
                     D
But tell me does she kiss,
               A
Like I used to kiss you?
                 Em
Does it feel the same;
                    A
When she calls your name?
                 D
Somewhere deep inside,
                A
You must know I miss you
               Em
But what can I say;
               A
Rules must be obeyed


[Chorus]
                  D
The judges will decide,
                 Bm
The likes of me abide
                  Em
Spectators of the show,
               A
Always staying low
                D
The game is on again,
             Bm
A lover or a friend
                 Em
A big thing or a small;
                    A
The winner takes it all


[Outro]
              D
I don t wanna talk,
                A
If it makes you feel sad
           Em
And I understand;
                        A
You ve come to shake my hand
       D
I apologize,
                A
If it makes you feel bad
             Em
Seeing me so tense;
             A
No self confidence

But you see,
                    D   Bm  Em  A
The winner takes it all
                    D   Bm  Em  A
The winner takes it all

D  Bm  Em  A  3x
