"Lost on You" as written by and Nathaniel Campany Laura Pergolizzi....
(Here we go)

When you get older, plainer, saner
When you remember all the danger we came from
Burning like embers, falling, tender
Long before the days of no surrender
Years ago and well you know

Smoke 'em if you got 'em
'Cause it's going down
All I ever wanted was you
I'll never get to heaven
'Cause I don't know how

Let's raise a glass or two
To all the things I've lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I've lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Baby, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?

Wishing I could see the machinations
Understand the toil of expectations in your mind
Hold me like you never lost your patience
Tell me that you love me more than hate me all the time
And you're still mine

So smoke 'em if you've got 'em
'Cause it's going down
All I ever wanted was you
Let's take a drink of heaven
This can turn around

Let's raise a glass or two
To all the things I've lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I've lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh, oh oh
Bab, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?

Let's raise a glass or two
To all the things I've lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you cold cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I've lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?

    My InterpretationThe singer is reflecting on a relationship that is failing or challenged.

    She's trying to shine light to her lover on wisdom regarding what it takes to invest into a relationship and if that investment is not recognized, how that is an indication of how her sacrifices and work is lost on" the person she loves.

    "all I ever wanted was you" --- no games.
    "ill never get to heaven cause i dont know how" -- even though she did right by her lover, it didn't work.
    "lets raise a glass or two" -- celebrating life / distracting herself while feeling heartbroken

    She also reflects on wanting to know more about her lover and her expectations; what are the mappings of her mind are. She's lost and confused about what her partner thinks and feels, but yet hopeful -- "we can turn this around".

    "Just think you can cut me loose?" ... She is reaffirming that she isn't someone that can just be discarded or toy'd with I think it's also that her lover may need to recognize how much she's depended on her.

    Overall, the song is a tug of war between her love/lover and her willingness to survive her disappointment.
