Coldplay Feat. Jay-Z – Lost+ lyrics

Just because I'm losing doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I'll stop, doesn't mean I'm across
Just because I'm hurting doesn't mean I'm hurt
Doesn't mean I didn't get what I deserved
No better and no worse

I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off

You might be a big fish in a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along may come a bigger one

And you'll be lost
Every river that you tried to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the firing stopped
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off

Aha, I gotcha, with the same sword they knight you
They gon' good night you with
Shit, that's only half if they like you
That ain't even the half what they might do

Don't believe me, ask Michael
See Martin, see Malcolm, see Biggie, see Pac
See success and its outcome
See Jesus, see Judas, see Caesar, see Brutus
See success is like suicide, suicide, it's a suicide

If you succeed prepare to be crucified
Media meddles, niggaz sue you, you settle
Every step you take they remind you you're ghetto
So it's tough being Bobby Brown

To be Bobby then you have to be Bobby now
And the question is, is to have had and lost
Better than not having at all?
Because I'm

Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off
