"Win Some, Lose Some" as written by and Robert Peter/chambers Williams....
We didn't think it'd last beyond summer
I met her father she met my mother
We didn't have anywhere else to go
She said to me when we grow older
Will we still need young love on our shoulders
Does it just fade away, will we ever know?
She touched my face and called me her lover
I never thought that I'd need another

Your cool suburban sun
You're foolin' every one
You win some you lose some

I didn't know what we had found
Just caught the bus and rode it to town
She wouldn't notice anything else but me

Your cool suburban sun
You're foolin' every one
You win some you lose some

Dancing at discos, and moaning at phone bills
Torremolinos and sun burnt in high heels
Swap it and sell it and drop it and smell it
All those years ago

She touched my face and called me her lover
I never thought that I'd need another

Your cool suburban sun
You're foolin' every one
You win some you lose some

Your cool suburban sun
You're foolin' every one
You win some you lose some

Now it's gone, now it's gone,
You win some, you lose some
Now it's gone, now it's gone,
You win some, you lose some
Now it's gone, now it's gone,
You win some, you lose some
Now it's gone, now it's gone,
You win some, you lose some

Win some

    General CommentThis is about getting carried away with a holiday romance. As soon as the holiday is over, reality sets in and it ends - but it's no big deal, you win some you lose some :)

    General CommentIt's one of those bittersweet Robbie's songs...To me it's about young love, and how sometimes it turns out to be much more than what expected it to be...Remembering those days that went by being an adult...I can sense it, even when it's an uptempo song it touches me, reminds me of those friends that have changed over the years and the innocence and bravery of being young. But "Now it's gone". You realize that it's true, everything has a good and bad side...and even when it might hurt to remember those days they were definitely worth living.
