Lose Yourself Freestyle Lyrics

You’ve been the girl staring at cell phones
The girl who doesn’t call home
You’ve been bad since before it was cool
Before you even knew you were breaking rules you think
Spinnin in your mother’s stomach you make her sick
So she vomits in the kitchen sink
Hurt her feelings once again
You cannot see yourself as the little girl you once were
Staring up with wide eyes
You feel dead inside
You’ve been the girl staring at cell phones
The girl grabbing the back of his shirt
Saying don’t hit him you’ll go to jail & i don’t got the bail
The girl in ugly apartments staying stay
Meaning please find a way to make me
The girl on the street in the outfit that took you two hours to pick
& ten minutes to take off
You are lost but still breathing
Skin soft or bleeding you are priceless
Even with the dollar bills on your hips
Your worth does not depend on what they pay you in
When they say you ain’t shit
What they say your name is
When they don’t know who they’re playing with
Your broken heart or how hard they can hit
I will die before i let them see me with my wings clipped
& self-respect has been my only weapon in every war i’ve ever been in
Bang bang click click i win
For once
Let them show you what they can take
Do not for one second be afraid
My hand is holding yours in an ice cold grip
Nothing hell can do to shake this
We will claw our way to heaven
I will not let you see the blood beneath your skin rise up
& take you under
Prove every motherfucker wrong in one song
You are strong & worth more than you know
Babygirl let it go

You are something better than a movie star
Real & falling
The girl with arms sore from holding herself up at 4am
In a stranger’s bathroom or the club
Letting romance turn into the cheap touch of a boy you don’t want
His cheap drugs
You’ve let men so far in for so long
That they’ve built haunted houses & you’re locking doors against them
Its dark where you are you like it cuz you can't see your scars
The girl with the heart that broke as quick as a lightswitch flip
Now youre blowin kisses breaking laws & getting paid for it
I’m a sucker for a bad motherfucker too
When i’m in love there’s nothing that i won’t do
& i like that about me it’s the best and worst thing
Heart heavy as a crown til they put me underground
But i am not gonna die with my face in the dirt
No matter how good it hurts

How to Format Lyrics:

  • Type out all lyrics, even repeating song parts like the chorus
  • Lyrics should be broken down into individual lines
  • Use section headers above different song parts like [Verse], [Chorus], etc.
  • Use italics (<i>lyric</i>) and bold (<b>lyric</b>) to distinguish between different vocalists in the same song part
  • If you don’t understand a lyric, use [?]
