Winner Takes All
I battle demons throughout the night
The fighting fierce and feral
Yes, my very soul lies in the balance
No guarantee who will win
No guarantee I'll even see the morn
But to lose, is to lose all
How is it that my life has come to this?
Where was it that I changed paths?
When did I decide to flirt with darkness?
When did its pull draw me in?
Have I found out too late its true intent?
If I live to see the dawn
I will take control of my life once more
But this fight is not over
I gain ground, only to lose it again
And the conflict continues
I can only hope my strength will endure
I cannot lose. I won't lose.
The morning will see me victorious
And I'll start my life anew
