1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You smile when you win
You smile when you lose

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It is the done thing
despite being churned-up inside
to greet your victor with magnanimity

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A façade

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Whereas previously
You had pictured yourself
punching the air
