The Winner Takes It All Lyrics

I don't wanna talk
About the things we've gone through
Though it's hurting me
Now it's history

    The winner takes it all is about the divorce between the two couples in the band. The song reminisces about their lives when they made sense and how it is so chaotic now. In the song it saids the Winner takes it all, the loser standing small. Its ironic because in a divorce there is no winner, and both are standing small.
