Song Lyrics

[Bono=Normal; Maria McKee=Italics; Both=Bold]

Once I had fame
I was full of pride
There were a lot of friends
Always by my side
But my luck ran dry
Now my friends begin to hide

Everybody loves a winner
Everybody loves a winner
When you lose
You lose alone

Everywhere I turn
There was a hello and a smile
I never thought they’d be gone
After a while
But the bankroll ran down
And the smiles turned to frowns

Everybody loves a winner
Everybody loves a winner

But when you lose
You lose alone

Once I had love
But I wouldn’t be true
To get back that love
There is nothin’ I wouldn’t do
But I loved and I’ve lost
And now I paid the cost

Everybody loves a winner
Everybody loves a winner
Everybody loves a winner

But when you lose
You lose alone
Whoa…

Ooo…
Wo-wo…
