"If I Lose Myself" as written by Alessandro Rodolfo Lindblad, Ryan Tedder, Benjamin Levin, Brent Michael Kutzle and Zachary Douglas Filkins....
I stared up at the sun
Thought of all other people, places and things I've loved
I stared up just to see
Of all other faces, you are the one next to me
You can feel the light start to tremble
Washing what you know out the sea yeah
You can see your life out of the window, tonight

If I lose myself tonight
It'll be by your side
If I lose myself tonight (whoa, whoa, whoa)

If I lose myself tonight
It'll be you and I
Lose myself tonight

I woke up with the sun
Thought of all other people, places and things I've loved
I woke up just to see
Of all other faces you were the one next to me
You can feel the light start to tremble
Washing what you know out the sea yeah
You can see your life out of the window, tonight

If I lose myself tonight
It'll be by your side
If I lose myself tonight (whoa, whoa, whoa)

If I lose myself tonight
It'll be you and I
Lose myself tonight (whoa)
Whoo
Oh ooh

Take us down and we keep trying
40,000 feet keep flying
Take us down and we keep trying
40,000 feet keep flying
Take us down and we keep trying
40,000 feet keep flying
Take us down and we keep trying
40,000 feet keep flying

Lose myself
If I lose myself tonight
Hoo hoo ooh
Hoo hoo ooh

    Song MeaningThe single, "If I Lose Myself", incorporates themes of living life to the fullest, adventure, discovery, and friendship. Interpret the lyrics in your design and/or or play off the themes noted above.
    In an interview with MTV news, lead singer/songwriter Ryan Tedder had this to offer,

    "Even though it sounds like this euphoric, 'let's go crazy tonight' song, it's a bit morbid; it's about going down in an airplane.

    Waking up on an airplane and finding out you're going down, having that moment of sheer panic, looking out the window, seeing your life pass before you, [but] looking over to your right and seeing the person you love sitting next to you, and realizing 'It could be worse ... the next 90 seconds are going to be pretty thrilling, and this person is with me, so I'm okay."

    General CommentThis song is simply a masterpiece!

    From the first time I heard it I felt it wasn't "a party all night song", there is just something in the melodie and the lyrics that conveye the feelings one probably has when one is going down in an airplane.

    Props to 1R for overcoming their fear and creating this meaningfull song !
