"Winner at a Losing Game" as written by and Levox/demarcus/rooney....
Baby, look here at me
Have you ever seen me this way
I've been fumblin' for words
Through the tears and the hurt and the pain
I'm gonna lay it all out
On the line tonight
And I think that it's time
To tell this uphill fight goodbye

Have ever had to love someone
That just don't feel the same
Tryin' to make somebody care for you
The way I do
Is like tryin' to catch the rain
And if love is really forever
I'm a winner at a losin' game

I know that baby, you tried
To find me somewhere inside of you
But you know you can't lie
Girl, you can't hide the truth
Sometimes two hearts
Just can't dance to the same beat
So I'll pack up my things
And I'll take what remains of me

Have ever had to love someone
That just don't feel the same
Tryin' to make somebody care for you
The way I do
Is like tryin' to catch the rain
And if love is really forever
I'm a winner at a losin' game

I know that I'll never be the man that you need or love
Yeah, baby it's killin' me to stand here and see
I'm not what you've been dreamin' of

Have ever had to love someone
That just don't feel the same
Tryin' to make somebody care for you
The way I do
Is like tryin' to catch the rain
And if love is really forever
I'm a winner at a losin' game

Oh, oh, if love is really forever
I'm a winner at a losin' game
Ooo, I'm tired of losing
Oh, oh, oh

    General CommentThis is just one of those songs that’s so relatable. I feel like I am in much the same situation right now, but I won’t know for a few more days until I hear back from this person.But anyways, I have definitely been in this position before now. And I agree that it’s one of those songs that rips you apart, but yet you keep pressing play, clicking the greater than.
    This part
    I know that baby you’ve tried to find me somewhere inside of you
    But you know you can’t lie girl you can’t hid the truth
    It’s like you know that the person truly cares about you (like a good friend or old flame), but they just can’t put you in the same place of their heart as where you have them. And you want it terribly, because you know how much you want to love them, but to truly love them it has to be reciprocated and they don’t want that.
    “I know that I'll never be the man that you need or love
    Yeah, baby it's killin' me to stand here and see
    I'm not what you've been dreamin' of”
    Again. So obvious. You know you cant be what you want to be for them and it destroys you. It’s what make you listen to songs like this. It puts you on grey street like Dave Matthews.
    I love at the end of the song when Gary really gets into it “TRYING TO CATCH THE RAIN.” It’s so beautiful.
    And at some point or another we are all winners at this losing game.
