"Lose" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum....
I can see it now, have to show you how
The funny thing is that we couldn't have it any other way
Still, it kills me when we say
Though all we've been through
All the songs that I've sung for you
We both know I'm gonna lose you

I hate to be alone
There comes a time to reap what you've sewn
Though all we've been through
All the songs that I've sung for you
We both know I'm gonna lose you

[Repeat: x2]
Let's think of all the good times
Instead of "wish we could" times
So much better that way
This is what I ask for
This is what I deserve
Be careful what you ask for

    General CommentMy favorite version of this song is from their acoustic show in Chicago...it's even more laid back and relaxed than the album version. This song is about a relationship thats ending..neither person really did anything to ruin it...it's just over. Neither one of them can do anything to save it, so he's saying that there's no reason to make it into a huge, ugly breakup.

    General CommentThis song is nothing absolutely amazing... it's about a breakup that he knows is inevitable... but the only way to get through times like those are to think of the good times not the bad times, and not let it get you down...

    General Commentthis song is amazingly awesome, but i think the first part goes "I can see it now, those who have lost loves frown"

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "I can see it now, ghost of lost loves prowl"
