Gentle Giant – Winning Lyrics

Once he could smile maybe happy

Fighting for his future and his destinations

There were his friends he’d rely on

Everyone had nothing but their aspirations

Soon dreaming found realization

Winning was his target with deliberation

Now he has everything, tell me why

No one knows him, the veils shut out cutting the tie

So now he’s made his own island

Not familiar even to his understanding

Thoughts turning sour, did he want it?

Something reassuring in his time and planning

What did he miss, needing nothing?

Seeing that it was the fighting and not the winning

No returning, no looking back, on with his way

Rising winner but falling man, gaining the day

Once he could smile maybe happy

Fighting for his future and his destinations

There were his friends he’d rely on

Everyone had nothing but their aspirations

Soon dreaming found realization

Winning was his target with deliberation
