Lose

Another life cut short and it will not stop,

Another roller coaster every time I drop, oh,

Can’t get you out of my head.

Well, love isn’t fair and it cost her lungs

To love who she wanted, but we ain’t got no free lunch.

 

Girl, you know you’re gonna lose

Gonna lose.

 

Another runaway daughter for the sake of love,

Another sacrifice song in the mourning sung.

Can’t get him out of her head.

Smoked filled rooms and firefly skies,

Thank God she made amends after their last fight.

 

Girl, you know you’re gonna lose

Gonna lose.

 

Another loss of love in a soundless night,

Another cough or two and her lungs got tight.

Can’t get him out of her head.

Hospital walls and pain medication,

Crumbling lungs will get vindication.

 

Girl, you know you’re gonna lose.

Gonna lose.
