"I'm a Loser" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
I'm a loser
I'm a loser
And I'm not what I appear to be

Of all the love I have won or have lost
There is one love I should never have crossed
She was a girl in a million, my friend
I should have known she would win in the end

I'm a loser
And I lost someone who's near to me
I'm a loser
And I'm not what I appear to be

Although I laugh and I act like a clown
Beneath this mask I am wearing a frown
My tears are falling like rain from the sky
Is it for her or myself that I cry?

I'm a loser
And I lost someone who's near to me
I'm a loser
And I'm not what I appear to be

What have I done to deserve such a fate?
I realize I have left it too late
And so it's true pride comes before a fall
I'm telling you so that you won't lose all

I'm a loser
And I lost someone who's near to me
I'm a loser
And I'm not what I appear to be

    General CommentI haven't heard this song in a while, but once i heard it the words really hit me hard because of my current situation / bone headedness (most accurate / intellectual word i could think of). Especially "and so it's true pride comes before a fall" I can't even begin to think how true this is; how we know our pride will get us in trouble, but sometimes we ignore what is inevitable because of our instant feelings of pride.

    General Commenti don't think its about his mom... i think its just about a relationship... just a song to make the group a bit more "unhappy".. but i must admit, AMAZING song.. i love it.. no matter what any1 says. i think its one of their bests... and i do have high standards

    General CommentI wish it would mean that the dumper is singing this song and is realizing he is such a freaking loser for letting a great girl go. Oh well, it's probably the other way around.

    General CommentThis song was inspired by Bob Dylan. This song is the partner of "Hide Your Love Away".

    General Commentthis song has always hit close to home for me. Not because I feel I'm a lose, but because of the following couplet:

    Although I laugh and I act like a clown
    Beneath this mask, I am wearing a frown

    That summed up my teenage years pretty well
