One day I was on the ground
When I needed a hand
Then it couldn't be found
I was so far down that I couldn't get up 
You know and one day I was one of life's losers
Even my friends were my accusers
In my head I lost before I begun

I had a dream but it turned to dust
And what I thought was love
That must have been lust
I was living in style 
When the walls fell in 
And when I played my hand 
I looked like a joker
Turn around fate must have woke her 
'Cause lady luck she was waiting outside the door

I'm winning
I'm winning
I'm winning 
I'm winning 
I'm winning
And I don't intend losing again

Too bad it belonged to me 
It was the wrong time and not meant to be 
It took a long time and I'm new born now 
I can see the day that I bleed for 
If it's agreed that there's a need 
To play the game and to win again

I'm winning
I'm winning
I'm winning 
I'm winning 
I'm winning
And I don't intend losing again

I had a dream but it turned to dust
And what I thought was love
That must have been lust
I was living in style 
When the walls fell in 
And when I played my hand 
I looked like a joker
Turn around fate must have woke her 
'Cause lady luck she was waiting outside the door

I'm winning
I'm winning
I'm winning 
I'm winning 
I'm winning
And I don't intend losing again

Santana

Santana is a rock band based around guitarist Carlos Santana and founded in the late 1960s. It first came to public attention after they performed the song "Soul Sacrifice" at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, when their Latin rock provided a contrast to other acts on the bill. This initial exposure made their first, eponymous album a hit at the time, followed in the next two years by successful follow-ups Abraxas and Santana III. more »
