I stared up at the sun,
Thought of all of the people, places and things I’ve loved.
I stared up just to see,
Of all the faces, you were the one next to me.

You can feel the light start to tremble,
Washing what you know out to sea.
You can see your life out of the window, tonight.

If I lose myself tonight,
It’ll be by your side.
If I lose myself tonight...
Ooh, yeah, yeah.

If I lose myself tonight,
It’ll be you and I.
Lose myself tonight...

[Instrumental break]

I woke up with the sun,
Thought of all the people, places and things I’ve loved.
I woke up just to see,
With all the faces, you were the one next to me.

You can feel the light start to tremble,
Washing what you know out to sea.
You can see your life out of the window, tonight.

If I lose myself tonight,
It’ll be by your side.
If I lose myself tonight...
Ooh, yeah, yeah.

If I lose myself tonight,
It’ll be you and I.
Lose myself tonight...
Whoooooooooo

[Instrumental] (Whoooooooooo)

Take us down and we keep trying,
40, 000 feet, keep flying.
Take us down and we keep trying,
40, 000 feet, keep flying.
Take us down and we keep trying,
40, 000 feet, keep flying.
Take us down and we keep trying,
40, 000 feet, keep flying.

(Lose myself)
If I lose myself tonight...

Whoooooooooo
Whoooooo, whoooo,
Whooooooo

Whoooooooooo
Whoooooo, whoooo,
Whooooooo

    It's about loving someone even though things don't always work out. But it's clear that tonight I could die next to him and be okay. It's all just a love song and how hey won't give up on each other. They understand they have failed a million times but that isn't going to stop them from living each other.
