Leo Sayer – You Win -- I Lose lyrics

Writers: Alan Tarney & Leo Sayer

You win -- I lose
That's how it all begins
Well I try so hard in these affairs of the heart
But I know that I'll never win

Well I talk to you sweet like honey
Don't I treat you as nice as pie
But I can't figure out when you scream and you shout
Why I have to apologize

You win -- I lose
That's how it always goes
I came into this thing with my heart in a spin
I went out with a broken nose

You win -- I lose
That's how it's meant to be
Well I tried all I can just to figure it out
But love's just mystery

Guess all you ladies would call me easy
But I'm a fool for the femme fatale
When she flashes those eyes I'm not a man I'm a mouse
Tryin' to patch up a broken heart

You win -- I lose
That's okay that's the way it goes
Well I tried all I could but it did me no good
Cause all I've got is nothin' to show

They say that men are always supposed to act
Like they're not really tryin'
But when I come on cool nobody seems to notice
It's a mystery
It's a mystery to me

You see you win -- I lose
I guess that's how we're meant to be
I tried as hard as I could but it did me no good
You're more than a match for me
And it don't make no sense to me
Love is still a mystery
It's just a mystery
