"Losing Sleep" as written by David Katz, Sam Hollander and Charlotte Sometimes....
Be the winner you always were
Don't you, don't you dare lose
Be the humble girl you are
Don't cry in stranger's cars
La La goodnight

I'm awake and I've been losing sleep
I've been fighting all my demons
I've been getting weak
'Cause I've been trying, trying, trying
To be anything other than me

Be the star you know you are
Don't you, Don't you dare fail
You can own that balance beam
Two steps forward towards make believe
La La Goodnight

I'm awake and I've been losing sleep
I've been fighting all my demons
I've been getting weak
'Cause I've been trying, trying, trying
To be anything other than me

What a silly dream
Oh silly, silly me
To think I had a handle on this
When I know I know I lose
I know I know I Lose
We both know We both know
That I know I know I know I lose
We both now we both know that

    Be the winner you always were
    Don't you, Don't you dare lose
    Be the humble girl you are
    Don't cry in stranger's cars

    La La Goonight

    I'm awake and I've been losing sleep
    I've been fighting all my demons, I've been getting weak
    'Cause I've been trying, trying, trying to be anything other than me

    Be the star you know you are

    What a silly dream

    When I know I know I lose
    I know I know I lose
    we both know we both know
    that I know I know I know I lose
    we both now we both know that

    General CommentI love tis song! It's like, this girl is staying up all night trying to figure out who she can be to make sure she isn't hurt by either love or so-called friends. Beautiful melody! Good job, Charlotte!

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song, it reminded me of high school and all the pressure there was to achieve, and how it felt to try and find out you couldn't live up to other people's standards. I think it's about how we develop such high expectations for ourselves, mostly because we're surrounded by people who either have high expectations or whom we believe have high expectations. In the end, she essentially says, "I know I can't do this, so I shouldn't even try".
