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
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...

    After a separation or divorce, one person commits to someone else, in this case the male. (Does she kiss, like I use to kiss you.) The first woman thought she had built a home and was safe but the other woman...the winner takes it all.

    in bed the male always stands small at the end of the act.

    it means she didn't tell him he was the daughter's father because that way the daughter could at least belong to her, when he couldn't. If he knew, she'd lose her little girl, so she didn't tell him.

    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.
