Born to lose. I've lived my life in vain.
Every dream has only brought me pain.
All my life I've always been so blue.
Born to lose - and now I'm losing you.

Born to lose. Oh, it seems so hard to bear.
When I wake and find that you're not there.
Ooh, - you've grown tired and now you say we're through.
I'm born to lose - hey - now I'm losing you.

(instrumental - Elton John/Leonard Cohen version only?)

(verse 3 - Ted Daffan version only)
Born to lose, my every hope is gone
It's so hard to face an empty dawn
You were all the happiness I knew
Born to lose, and now I'm losing you

(verse 3 - Elton John/Leonard Cohen version only)
Born to lose. I've lived my life in vain. (lived my life in vain)
Every dream has only brought me pain. (has only brought me pain)
All my life (all my life) I've always been so blue. (been so blue)
Born to lose (I'm born to lose.) and now I'm losing you. (I'm losing you)

(verse 4 - Ted Daffan version only)
There's no use to dream of happiness
All I see is only loneliness
All my life, I've always been so blue
Born to lose, and now I'm losing you

(coda - Elton John/Leonard Cohen version only)
Born to lose - and now Elton, I'm losing you.

(instrumental/coda)
