There's no way I can talk to you
And not cry
So I'm telling you this with tears
In my eyes
It all started not that long ago
When I told you the things you're not supposed to know
Such a dumb thing for me to do
How could I proclaim my love for you?
Remembering how the tears slowly fell
When you said that you loved somebody else
My heart broke in a million pieces
So much to say, and yet I'm speechless

I can't win the fight - I've tried all my life
I can't win the race - I'm stuck in second place
No matter how I try, I can't reach the top
Now I just want to die, make the hurting stop
Doesn't matter what I do, I can never get to you
That's the way it's always been
Oh baby, I can't win

This girl that you love, she's pure
Perfection
I've seen her around, she gets all the
Attention
But does she love you the way that I do?
Does she get weak at just the sight of you?
Can she breathe when she sees your eyes?
Does she believe the heart tells no lies?
My heart is burning like it's on fire
How can I stop this aching desire?

I can't win the fight - I've tried all my life
I can't win the race - I'm stuck in second place
No matter how I try, I can't reach the top
Now I just want to die, make the hurting stop
Doesn't matter what I do, I can never get to you
That's the way it's always been
Oh baby, I can't win

I'm so confused, I think I'm dying
I know I'll lose, why bother trying?
What's the point in being here?
You have made it awfully clear
That it's her you're needin',
Her you believe in
Doesn't matter what I do, I can never get to you
That's the way it's always been...

I can't win the fight - I've tried all my life
I can't win the race - I'm stuck in second place
No matter how I try, I can't reach the top
Now I just want to die, make the hurting stop
Doesn't matter what I do, I can never get to you
That's the way it's always been
Oh baby, I can't win

I can't win the war - I've tried all this before
I can't pass the test - I'll never be the best
No matter what I do, I'm not in your heart
All because of you, I'm back at the start
Doesn't matter how I try, in the end I always cry
That's the way it's always been
Oh baby, I can't win
