"Everything to Lose" as written by and Dido/armstrong Armstrong....
Mhhhhhhmmmhhhhhmmmhhhmmm

I used to be so fearless so limitless and free
Happy on my own and nothing really bothered me.
I had desires to see the world, jump out of planes and fly
And I love to be alive but I was not afraid to die

I used to be so sure of things and self-contained
I could carry on with no need to explain
It didn't matter if I ever made it home
Could go too fast, and drink all night and dance alone

Mhhhhhmmmhhhhmmmmm

I love to be alive but I was not afraid to die
I love to be alive but I was not afraid to die

Woah

I've got everything to lose

I used to be so thoughtless, so easy and free
Could walk away, not think ahead, and had no plans to keep.
No hand to told, no one to bring down with me.
I wouldn't see the worst and it only hurts me.

I love to be alive but I was not afraid to die

Woah

I've got everything to lose

Woah

Since I've met you

I've got everything to lose

Mhhhhhhmmmhhhhhmmmmhhhmm

I've got everything to lose

Woah

Since I've met you
I've got everything to lose
Woah

I've got everything to lose

    General CommentI love this song. I really think that the song is about her truly moving on from the death of her father.
    It could also be about finding a new love, but then again, everybody thought that, "Don't Believe In Love", was about Dido not believing in love. So, I'm going to go with the deeper meaning and say it's about her moving on from her father's death.
    I love her hidden meanings in songs, that and her voice with the melodies just makes her such a good artist.
    That's why I made her the Empress of Happily Melancholy. She owns that title. :)

    General CommentI am quoting Dido here:

    " It's a song that puts us all in a good mood. It's a true love song really, even though it's talking about that fear you can get when you actually really love someone and have finally got something real to lose."

    So apparently the lyrics are pretty self-explanatory. The song underlines the ways in which true love brings meaning to one's life.. it's about how commitment nurtures one's life.

    Dido's voice is piercingly beautiful. Great beat. Amazing song.

    General Comment(I loved to be alive but I was not afraid to die) this is the whole point of the song. If we don't have something in life to live for we are not afraid to die and nothing is rly important when we find THAT THING everything seems to make sense. Only love can make us like that.
