Lyrics

  • We nearly made it
  • We nearly found the perfect combination
  • The road was right, we must have read the signs wrong
  • And now it's all gone
  • But if we'd made it
  • Could we be sure that it was for the better
  • Who could say we would have stayed together
  • Nothing is certain
  • In A changing world
  • Every loser wins
  • Once the dream begins
  • In time you'll see, fate holds the key
  • And every loser knows
  • The light the tunnel shows
  • Will shine on you
  • And all those who knew
  • That we could make it
  • But suddenly we seemed to stop and lose our way
  • But did it really matter anyway
  • For that was yesterday
  • And we must live for now
  • Every loser wins
  • Once the dream begins
  • In time you'll see, fate holds the key
  • And every loser knows
  • The light the tunnel shows
  • Will shine on you
  • And all those who knew
  • That we could make it
  • Stand up and count me
  • I know your on my side
  • Shine down on me
  • And those who believe
  • That we could make it
