Eminem Lose Yourself lyrics

Lose Yourself lyrics

[Intro]

Look… if you had… one shot, or one opportunity

To seize everything you ever wanted… in one moment

Would you capture it… or just let it slip? Yo…

[Verse 1]

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy

There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti

He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready

to drops bombs, but he keeps on forgetting

what he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud

He opens his mouth but the words won’t come out

He’s chokin, how? Everybody’s jokin now

The clock’s run out, time’s up, over - BLAOW!

Snap back to reality, OHH - there goes gravity

OHH - there goes Rabbit, he choked

He’s so mad, but he won’t

Give up that easy nope, he won’t have it

He knows, his whole back’s to these ropes

It don’t matter, he’s dope

He knows that, but he’s broke

He’s so sad that he knows

when he goes back to this mobile home, that’s when it’s

back to the lab again, yo, this whole rap shit

He better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass him

[Chorus]

You better - lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go (go)

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime

You better - lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go (go)

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime

You better…

[Verse 2]

Soul’s escaping, through this hole that is gaping

This world is mine for the taking

Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order

A normal life is boring; but superstardom’s

close to post-mortem, it only grows harder

Homie grows hotter, he blows it’s all over

These hoes is all on him, coast to coast shows

He’s known as the Globetrotter

Lonely roads, God only knows

He’s grown farther from home, he’s no father

He goes home and barely knows his own daughter

But hold your nose cause here goes the cold water

These hoes don’t want him no mo’, he’s cold product

They moved on to the next schmoe who flows

He nose-dove and sold nada, and so the soap opera

is told, it unfolds, I suppose it’s old partner

But the beat goes on da-da-dum da-dum da-dah

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

No more games, I’ma change what you call rage

Tear this motherfuckin roof off like two dogs caged

I was playin in the beginning, the mood all changed

I’ve been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage

But I kept rhymin and stepped right in the next cypher

Best believe somebody’s payin the pied piper

All the pain inside amplified by the

fact that I can’t get by with my nine to

five and I can’t provide the right type of

life for my family, cause man, these God damn

food stamps don’t buy diapers, and there’s no movie

There’s no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life

And these times are so hard, and it’s gettin even harder

Tryin to feed and water my seed plus, teeter-totter

Caught up between bein a father and a primadonna

Baby momma drama screamin on her too much for me to wanna

stay in one spot, another day of monotony

has gotten me to the point, I’m like a snail I’ve got

to formulate a plot, or end up in jail or shot

Success is my only motherfuckin option, failure’s not

Mom I love you but this trailer’s got to go

I cannot grow old in Salem’s Lot

So here I go it’s my shot, feet fail me not

This may be the only opportunity that I got

[Chorus]

[Outro]

You can do anything you set your mind to, man
