Nobody Wins

Album: Del Rio, Texas, 1959 (1992)
  • You say this ain't over yet
    I've said things that I regret
    Won't be easy to forget
    Scars take time to heal

    Before another bitter word gets loose
    I was hoping we could call a truce

    Cause nobody wins, we both lose
    Hearts get broken and love get bruised
    When we light that same old fuse
    Again and again
    Nobody wins slamming doors
    We've both lost this fight before
    And I won't play that game no more
    Cause nobody wins

    Darlin' we've got too much pride
    It don't matter who's wrong or right
    Honey love ain't black and white
    It's the way I feel about you

    All I wanna do is hold you tight
    I can't take another angry night

    When nobody wins, we both lose
    Hearts get broken and love get bruised
    When we light that same old fuse
    Again and again
    Nobody wins slamming doors
    We've both lost this fight before
    And I won't play that game no more
    Cause nobody wins

    I know something's bound to break
    If we don't bend
    Baby, what's it gonna take

    Nobody wins, we both lose
    Hearts get broken and love get bruised
    When we light that same old fuse
    Again and again
    Nobody wins slamming doors
    We've both lost this fight before
    And I won't play that game no more
    Cause nobody wins

    Nobody wins
    Nobody wins

  • Camille from Toronto, OhOh, yeah, I remember when this song came out and the video was played on a country music station. Great song, and the words ring true; too often, fights between two people end up where nobody wins.
  • Dylan from Port Orange, FlAmazing song!!! Today's country just isn't the same.
