"You Lost Me" as written by and Derek Miller Sydney Alexis Krauss....
Uhh you lost me

A hundred circle with a burnin
They took a love away
We wanted it this way
We wanted it this way

Face down in the dirt, in your mini skirt
Touch the ground
Back oh I got your back
I don't want you to see me this way
I don't want you to see me this way
I don't want you to see me this way
But I wait and die, but I wait and die
Took a breath, took a breath
I'm never gonna lie to you,
But I'm gonna have to tell the truth
Uhh you lost me
Down in the ground if you feel so
Took a breath, took a breath
I'm never gonna lie to you,
But I'm gonna have to tell the truth
Uhh you lost me

Uhh you lost me
has in eternal verse
Close in do you favorite fans
All your favorite fans
You love the only ones
Telling me the son
I'm never have any fun
You walk around way down

I don't want you to see me this way
I don't want you to see me this way
I don't want you to see me this way
But I wait and die, but I wait and die
Took a breath, took a breath
I'm never gonna lie to you,
But I'm gonna have to tell the truth
Uhh you lost me
Down in the ground if you feel so
Took a breath, took a breath
I'm never gonna lie to you,
But I'm gonna have to tell the truth
Uhh you lost me

    Lyric CorrectionBehind the circle k,
    where our bodies lay,
    we took our lives away,
    we wanted it this way.

    Face down in the dirt,
    in your mini-skirt,
    teeth touch the tracks,
    yeah I got your back.

    I don't want you to see me this way,
    What a way to die (in 1985)

    Down in the ground we can sing from the grave,
    take a breath, take a breath
    I would never lie to you,
    But I'm gonna have to tell the truth.
    Ah-ahh, you lost me.

    Teenage metal heads,
    in your denim vests,
    cause you're holding hands,
    through your favorite bands,
    all your favorite bands.

    Your not the only ones
    down beneath the sun who never had any fun,
    you walk around town with your heads way down.

    Song Meaning“You Lost Me.” There were a lot of classic references that went into this song. It’s safe to say I was listening to a lot of Van Halen. I’m a massive Def Leppard fan. Hysteria is easily one of my favorite records of all time. Lyrically, this is one of the few songs I’ve ever written that actually has a real narrative. It’s not about any two people specifically, but it’s about a double suicide. A young couple who ended up committing suicide behind a Circle K. Imagine a couple in Florida, but maybe even the Midwest, and you’re the only two people in your school that listen to Metallica in 1985. You sort of bond over that, and that you have nothing in common with anybody else. It’s a youthful ignorance, a very romantic notion. It just ended up happening. Alexis and I started talking about it, and stumbled on this story. It felt like this was what the song was about.

    General CommentI always hear the first or second, "what a way to die" as "but I'm ready to die." Even sadder.
