"I Lost You" as written by and Cole Porter....
I've got you under my skin.
I've got you deep in the heart of me.
So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me.
I've got you under my skin.
I'd tried so not to give in.
I said to myself, this affair never will go so well.
But why should I try to resist when, baby, I know down well
I've got you under my skin?

I'd sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of havin' you near
In spite of a warnin' voice that comes in the night
And repeats, repeats in my ear,
Don't you know, you fool, you never can win?
Use your mentality, wake up to reality.
But each time that I do just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
Cause I've got you under my skin.

I would sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of havin' you near
In spite of the warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats, how it yells in my ear,
Don't you know, you fool, ain't no chance to win
Why not use your mentality, get up, wake up to reality?
And each time I do just the thought of you
Makes me stop just before I begin
Cause I've got you under my skin.
And I like you under my skin.

    General CommentThis song is about making a mistake about letting some-one you love go but then you realise that its too late and it hurts and there's nothing you can do. When it's late.. It's just too late.

    General CommentIt's about feeling like your missing that huge part of your life you should have never let go. And sometimes you just can't ever get that feeling back with that person. Wishing you could change that last thing you said might have changed everythng...I love this song soooo much. Watch the lyrical dance to it on youtube...love it
