I see it now, how it’s got to be
See it in your eyes; you could change me
I don’t know how; I guess I’ll wait and see
But the magic in you found the magic in me

I got pretty deep, with some darker charms
Now I’m calling for love to save me from harm
Get my head straight, get you in sight
Transfigure my thoughts from dark into light

Powers that be, do you hear my call?
Lift you up in my love, and winner takes all

Now, I never guessed what love could bring
And I’m not quite sure how to change things
And I’m trying hard to break away, be free
But the man with no name’s got a serious hold on me

You said I let you down, said you couldn’t stay
Now I’m asking of you not to turn away
I’ll get myself clean and get you back
Use the spells that I have to help, not attack

Powers that be, I promise it all
Wrap you up in my arms, and winner takes all

I never knew how a heart could change
For a guy you despise; it seems pretty strange
And I’ve been trying hard, and it was all in vain
‘Cause the magic in you found the magic in James, in James

You said I let you down, said you couldn’t stay
Now I understand you found another way
You shut me out, broke us apart
Transfigured my life from light to dark

Powers that be, put an end to it all
Swept you up in his love, and winner took all

I guess the winner takes all
I guess the winner takes …
