Meghan Trainor Lyrics

Like I'm Gonna Lose You Lyrics
(ft. John Legend)

I found myself dreaming
In silver and gold
Like a scene from a movie
That every broken heart knows
We were walking on moonlight
And you pulled me close
Split second and you disappeared and then I was all alone

I woke up in tears
With you by my side
A breath of relief
And I realized
No, we're not promised tomorrow

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

Let's take our time
To say what we want
Use what we got
Before it's all gone
'Cause 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

Like I'm Gonna Lose You Info:

• Meghan explained:
"It's about when you have those nightmares where your loved one passes away, and you wake up sweating and crying. You check on them, and they're still there, and you realize that you're not promised tomorrow, so you're going to love them like you're losing them."

• She had no intention of including it on the album Title until a relative intervened:
"I wrote the song like years ago and it wasn't going to make my album but my Uncle Burton Toney, the man, my Trinidadian uncle [he is married to Meghan's aunt] he met my managers and forced them to listen. He said you need to hear this song, she didn't show you this song, you need to hear it. And I thought because it wasn't shoo-wop vibey I blanked out, and the girl, my manager, listened to it and started crying and she's like 'You know you've got to cut this, right?'"

• The song features John Legend. Meghan explained reaching out to him:
"I cut it, I produced a version with my friend and they sent it to John because he's on my management company, and he's like 'I love this I want to be a part of it...It's gonna be cool."
