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
