I feel like I win when I lose [Chorus] Waterloo, I was defeated, you won the war Waterloo, promise to love you forevermore Waterloo, couldn't escape if I wanted to Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo Finally facing my Waterloo [Pre-Chorus] So how could I ever refuse? I feel like I win when I lose [Outro] Waterloo, couldn't escape if I wanted to Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo Finally facing my Waterloo Woo, Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa-Waterloo Finally facing my Waterloo Woo, Waterloo, knowing my fate is to be with you
