Lost On You

Lyrics

play When you get older,   , saner
play Will you remember all the  
play We came from?
play Burning like embers, falling,  
play Longing for the days of no surrender
play Years ago
play And well you know

play So   'em if you got 'em
play 'Cause it's going down
play All I ever wanted was you
play I'll never get to  
play 'Cause I don't know how
play Let's raise a glass or two

play To all the things I've lost on you
play Oh-oh
play Tell me are they lost on you?
play Oh-oh
play Just that you could cut me  
play Oh-oh
play After everything I've lost on you
play Is that lost on you?

play Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
play Oh-oh-oh-oh
play Is that lost on you?
play Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
play Baby, is that lost on you?
play Is that lost on you?

play Wishin' I could see the machinations
play Understand the   of expectations
play In your mind
play Hold me like you never lost your  
play Tell me that you love me more than   me
play All the time
play And you're still  

play So smoke 'em if you got 'em
play 'Cause it's going down
play All I ever wanted was you
play Let's take a drink of heaven
play This can turn  
play Let's raise a glass or two

play To all the things I've lost on you
play Oh-oh
play Tell me are they lost on you?
play Oh-oh
play Just that you could cut me loose
play Oh-oh
play After everything I've lost on you
play Is that lost on you?

play Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
play Oh-oh-oh-oh
play Is that lost on you?
play Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
play Baby, is that lost on you?
play Is that lost on you?

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

meaningMeaning

This track is about the breakdown of LP's relationship with her ex-girlfriend.

"When I wrote that song I was actually a year away from breaking up with that person," she told The Independent. "It was like being suffocated slowly… I always go into a relationship wanting it to last forever, I think most people do, and then you have that scary period where you become aware that it isn't working."

vocabulary Vocabulary

smoke 'em if you got 'em

The phrase "Smoke 'em if you got 'em" or "Smoke if you got 'em" is slang for "do what you want, if you have the means". The first phrase was popular in the United States military during World War II, meaning to take a break. Officers would say "Smoke 'em if you got 'em", allowing the soldiers to take a break and smoke their cigarettes, "if you got' em" referring to the vagaries of war. Cigarettes were nearly impossible to get in Europe during that time because of the deprivations of the war.
