“Sometimes” 
 by Anita Baker from the Songstress album (1983)
 
Everybody wants to be a winner and take their place at the top
Everyone wants their name up in lights, for the good times never stop
Sometimes the bad luck will creep up and catch you by surprise
Your mind’s confused, you feel misused
You’ve got to leave those troubles behind

Chorus:
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Sometimes you wanna cry, sometimes you play the fool

Tag:
Hold on a little longer
Try to be a little stronger
And you can win
And everything is gonna be yours

When you cry the whole world laughs at you
They don’t seem to understand
But the time will come when the tables turn
And you’re gonna have the winning hand

Chorus:
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Sometimes you wanna cry, sometimes you play the fool

Tag:
Hold on a little longer
Try to be a little stronger
And you can win
And everything is gonna be yours

When you cry the whole world laughs at you
They don’t seem to understand
But the time will come when the tables turn
And you’re gonna have the winning hand

Sometimes the bad luck will creep up and catch you by surprise
Your mind’s confused, you feel misused
You’ve got to leave those troubles behind

Chorus 2x

Songwriters: Moten, Patrick L; Sully, Sandra;

 
In the game of life, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Sometimes you wanna cry and sometimes you play the fool.
 
 It is important to understand that winners must see the triumph in reaching the top but must also understand the cost to stay there. Do you have a winner’s attitude and altitude? Are you a winner just caught up in the power and control of winning? Do you see that once you finish celebrating your win, then it is time to do the work? Is winning the end all and be all for you? 
 
Those who lose must see the triumph of losing  as a chance to fuel their desire to work hard, stay the course and try again. Losing is a temporary station, not a permanent destination. Do you have a loser’s attitude and altitude? Are you a losers caught up in pity parties and doom wrapped in gloom? Do you see that once you finish mourning the loss, then it is time to mobilize, motivate, and make it happen? Is losing the end all and be all for you?
 
Consider this: winners and losers both face challenges but it is the path that each decides to take that will make the difference. Winners are challenged to do the work  to stay the course. Just like the lyrics in the songs winners want their name to stay in lights forever. Some winners come to see that their forever is short lived because they did not work to stay, or stay to work. Winners can have the greatest win and lose it all. Losers are challenged to do the work to get on course, they must realize the tables will turn and they will eventually win. Losers must hold on, be strong and wait on their time to win. Losers can have the worse loss and win it all.  
 
Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Sometimes you wanna cry and sometimes you play the fool…

A period tells you that is that. With a semicolon you get a pleasant little feeling of expectancy ; there is more to come; read on; it will get clearer.
