Lose Yourself Lyrics - Eminem
Review The Song (59)
Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
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 drop 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 choking how, everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up over, blaow!
Snaps back to reality, ope! There goes gravity,
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked,
He's so mad, but he won't give up that easy,
No, 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 stagnant that he knows,
When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's,
Back to the lab again yo,
This this whole rhapsody,
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him.
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment,
You own it, you better never let it go,
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow,
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo!
The soul's escaping, through this hole that it's 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, only grows hotter,
He blows us all over, these hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he's know 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,
His hoes don't want him no more, he's cold product,
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows,
He nose dove and sold nada,
So the soap opera is told and unfolds,
I suppose it's old partner but the beat goes on,
Da da dum da dum da da
No more games, I'ma change what you call rage,
Tear this motherfucking roof off like 2 dogs caged.
I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed,
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage,
But I kept rhyming and step right in the next cipher,
Best believe somebody's paying the pied piper,
All the pain inside amplified by the fact,
That I can't get by with my 9 to 5,
And I can't provide the right type of life for my family,
Cause man, these goddam food stamps don't buy diapers,
And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life,
And these times are so hard and it's getting even harder,
Trying to feed and water my seed, plus,
Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a prima donna,
Baby mama drama's screaming on and,
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 I end up in jail or shot,
Success is my only motherfucking 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 cause maybe the only opportunity that I got!
You can do anything you set your mind to, man

best song | Reviewer: EminemGirl | 3/20/14
Eminem is the best rapper alive. I love all his tracks, but lose yourself ist the best!
My favs are lose yourself (of course), without me, 'till I collapse, the real slim shady...
Em understands how to show his feelings in words and rhymes. I love it. Can't stop listen to his songs. ♥
BLOWN AWAY | Reviewer: A_Furry_Echidna | 12/26/13
This song is his finest. Rap God was his Hardest. Which one? Wat was his best song? Losing yourself listening to a rap god named Slim Shady is the finest you can get. He had a pretty harsh life in Detroit and still managed. This guy is of the Rapping Trinity- Biggie, Tupac and Eminem himself. Whats not to love about his best song?
The rapper who started it all | Reviewer: Love SHADY | 6/18/13

Lose Yourself | Reviewer: Serialkiller-in-pantyhose | 1/10/12
Just like lots of other reviewers I didn't use to listen to rap. But then I tried to listen to Slim.
It's not only this song, it's all of his songs.
With his unique style, emotional lyrics and great flows he got me into this whole rapthing and now I listen to his music every day. it doesn't mather ( ;) ) if it's his new stuff or his old albums, everything is awesome.
I think I lost myself in his music.
Amazing | Reviewer: Daniel Ohara | 11/17/11
This song is really amazing, starts slow and its going faster reaching the climax together with the lyrics, when I feel depressed I hear it and my mood comes better, this song is very realistic and show us we have to do our beast if we relly want to have success in our life, "Success is my only motherfucking option, failure's not", I think the same, we got just an opportunity and we have to size in order to win, "and This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo""
Loved it | Reviewer: SamS.SHADY | 11/8/11
Had a game last year had to win by al fuckin cost.I had completed ma practice and one o ma team mate gave me his iPOD then i heard shadys song lose yourself.Then i took it on my phone,listend to it and those words encouraged me like fuck.WON THE GAME THOUGH!
Complete | Reviewer: Rob | 4/15/11
I've heard a lot of songs, I listen to just about every genre and have a library of well over 50000 tracks. I've never heard one single song that sounded more complete than this.
Surely this is Em and Dre's best work.
...Huh... | Reviewer: EmoGrungePUNKGirl | 3/20/11
I usually stick with the emo grunge metal PUNK stuff, maybe some altrock, but never rap. then i picked up my idiot little brother's ipod, just to see what he was listening to, and it was this song. And i loved it. i tried out the rest of his stuff, but i really hate it. i am just not a rap type of person, but this song got to me (i kinda suffer from sever stage fright cuz im really ugly and fat!). I'm not gonna go sing a solo on live tv because of this song, but i get where hes coming from. I've been booed of the stage by punkrock haters, and i've been so nervous that i upchucked. Thanks Eminem, and sorry, but your other stuff does kinda suck (not lyrics-wise, great lyrics, but because of the rap. why is such a brilliant person a rapper?!?!)
Lose Yourself | Reviewer: firstname.lastname@example.org | 3/13/10
This friend of mine at school can sing the first verse and It's well funny. I do know all the words up to Time's ran out, Time's up over bloah! It's real fast.
And anyway his name is Joel Croft.
