Lyrics:
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,
it seems so hard to bear
How I long to always have you near
You’ve grown tired
and now you say we’re through
Born to lose and now I’m losing you.

Born to lose,
my every hope is gone
It’s so hard to face that empty dawn
You were all
the happiness I knew
Born to lose and now I’m losing you.

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
