"He About To Lose Me" as written by Rodney Roy Jerkins and Ina Wroldsen....
I'm touching hands with someone seriously beautiful
I feel it burning and I know I'm standing far too close
I'm telling lies and if it shows I see that he don't care
I know he wants to take me home and get on out of here

I got someone waiting at home
He says he in love but lately I just don't know
He don't see me or make me feel hot
Banging in the club with all of my ladies and he don't know that

He about to lose, about to lose, about to lose me
He about to lose me
He about to lose, about to lose, about to lose me
He about to lose me

I feel my body is in focus as he touches me
And I should go but I can't overcome this chemistry
He pulls me close before he whispers something in my ear
He says he wants to take me home and get me out of here

I got someone waiting at home
He says he in love but lately I just don't know
He don't see me or make me feel hot
Banging in the club with all of my ladies and he don't know that

He about to lose, about to lose, about to lose me
He about to lose me
He about to lose, about to lose, about to lose me
He about to lose me

Someone by the bar keeps looking at us dancing
I see him staring at me, I see what he wants to be
Someone by the bar keeps looking at us dancing
I gotta, I gotta go
He don't know that

He about to lose, about to lose, about to lose me
He about to lose me
He about to lose, about to lose, about to lose me
He about to lose me
He about to lose, about to lose, about to lose me
He about to lose me
He about to lose, about to lose, about to lose me
He about to lose me

I'm touching hands with someone seriously beautiful

    I like this part right here in the beginning and the last lyrics of the end. Following | by my interpretation.

    I'm touching hands with someone seriously beautiful | As opposed to someone trivially good looking

    I'm telling lies and if it shows I see that he don't care | Alludes to an affair, an understanding of an affair


    ___

    There's an internal conflict for the writer of this song. She feels some sort of irony and ambivalence. She knows what she's capable of doing, of whats "about" to happen. She feels sympathy for one guy whoever that "he" is. The mundane yet so deep understanding of lust. And how it converts itself into "love" and something seriously beautiful. It speaks volumes of Spears' ability to constantly reinvent herself through love. These techno-pop songs with ballad-like riffs and soulful beats like Unusual You, Amnesia, or this here-He About To Lose Me- are all symbolic of Spears' perpetual renewal vows of love and it should also speak of her talent, which is beyond remarkable, its worth some merit.

    General CommentAhhh, I love this song!

    It's exactly how you feel when you're tempted to cheat. When you're dating someone who makes you feel unappreciated, and then you meet someone else who you have amazing chemistry with, you just want to give in to your temptations so badly.

    My OpinionThis is the best song on Femme Fetale. It's the only one with emotion and I consider it Femme Fetale's "Unusual You", just with different feeling. I absolutely adore this song, it's fabulous.

    I could add in my interpretation of this song, but ImitationofCait pretty much said everything.

    General CommentThis song to me is like Amnesia but a continuation of it, which was my current all time favorite up until this one.
    It basically just has the same context.
    The song isn't about cheating, but the power that lust has on us.
    Even if you don't agree to what the song stands for, you can't deny the truth behind it's meaning.
    It's just so dang catchy.
    Best Part:
    "Someone by the bar keeps looking at us dancing,
    I see him staring at me I see where he wants to be."

    That line just puts this captivating scene in my head.

    General CommentI love this song, I just feel conected with this song even befer I knew what was it about.
    I think this song tries to represent how is she feeling when she's been ignored, is about how despised she feels and how she needs to be mor appreciated so she would be tempted to be with someone else.
