Like I'm Gonna Lose You - Meghan Trainor ft. John Legend



The Experience: Meghan Trainor and John Legend mix their powerfully different voices for a powerfully different song. More than just a mix of voices, Like I'm Gonna Lose You also mixes the different powers of loving and losing. The song is both happy and sad at the same time. 

Video: Waiting. 

The meaning of Meghan Trainor's Like I'm Gonna Lose You is "I won't take you for granted." Love taken for granted becomes unexciting, then fades away. Meghan was dreaming about losing her lover, and wakes up weeping he's gone... only to find he's still there. Meghan and Like I'm Gonna Lose You promise to make the most of the time they've got left, to make the most of the love they've got left... to make the most of the life they've got left. 
3 lights shine from Like I'm Gonna Lose You: 

  1. She learns from her mistakes (before she even made them) 
  2. Pain can teach us how to love
  3. Take nothing for granted, make the most of the time you have left


Ask Yourself: Do I take the people who love me for granted? Do I thank them and show my love for them every day?

LYRICS:
So I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you

[John Legend:]
In the blink of an eye
Just a whisper of smoke
You could lose everything
The truth is you never know

So I'll kiss you longer baby
Any chance that I get
I'll make the most of the minutes and love with no regrets

So let's take our time
To say what we want
Use what we got
Before it's all gone
No, we're not promised tomorrow

[Both:]
So I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you

Hey
Whoa

I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you

Yeah, yeah
Like I'm gonna lose you
