Santana – Winning lyrics
One day I was on the ground
When I needed a hand
And it couldn't be found
I was so far down
That I couldn't get up
You know and
One day I was one of lifes losers
Even my friends were my ac-cus-ers
And in my head
Lost before I'd begun

I had a dream
But it turned to dust
What I thought was love
That must have been lust
I was living in style
When the walls fell in
When I played my hand
I looked like a joker
Turn around
Fate must have woke her
Cause lady luck she was
Waiting outside the door


I'm winning
I'm winning
I'm winning
And I don't intend on losing again

Too bad it belonged to me
It was the wrong time
And I meant to be
It took a long time
And I knew for now
I can see the day
That I breath for
Friends agree there's a need
To play the game
And to win again

(repeat first line 5xs)
(repeat last line 4xs)

Repeat verse ii

(repeat first line 5xs)

Winning meanings

  • t
    Guy loses a girlfriend who makes him feel like a loser - maybe when he asks her to marry him? (from "looked like a joker")
    to find a better one "waiting outside the door" after the old one left. Friends encouraged him to try love again.
    Decidedly pagan: fate and luck are substitutions for God's providence.
