Music Monday: “If I Lose Myself” by OneRepublic

Every Monday, we highlight one song that you may not have heard of, may not have heard in ages, or one that we just can’t seem to get out of our heads. Enjoy!

I never thought I would like another OneRepublic song after their megahit that just wouldn’t stop playing on the radio, “Good Life.” It was everywhere – on the radio, in Disney commercials, everywhere! However, their newest track is a decidedly more upbeat sound. Give it a listen below.

“If I Lose Myself” Lyrics:

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
