8 Mile movie - Lose Yourself lyrics

rate me


Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity<br>

To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment<br>

Would you capture it or just let it slip? <br>


His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy <br>

There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti<br>

He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready <br>

To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin <br>

What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud <br>

He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out<br>

He's chokin, how everybody's jokin now<br>

The clock's run out, time's up over, blouww!<br>

Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity<br>

Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked<br>

He's so mad, but he won't give up that<br>

Is he? No<br>

He won't have it , he knows his whole back city's ropes<br>

It don't matter, he's dope<br>

He knows that, but he's broke<br>

He's so stacked that he knows <br>

When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's<br>

Back to the lab again yo<br>

This whole rhapsody<br>

He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him<br>



You better lose yourself in the music, the moment <br>

You own it, you better never let it go <br>

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow <br>

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo <br>


The soul's escaping, through this hole that it's gaping<br>

This world is mine for the taking<br>

Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order <br>

A normal life is borin, but superstardom's close to post mortar<br>

It only grows harder, only grows hotter <br>

He blows us all over these hoes is all on him<br>

Coast to coast shows, he's know as the globetrotter<br>

Lonely roads, God only knows<br>

He's grown farther from home, he's no father<br>

He goes home and barely knows his own daughter<br>

But hold your nose cuz here goes the cold water <br>

His hoes don't want him no mo, he's cold product <br>

They moved on to the next schmoe who flows<br>

He nose dove and sold nada<br>

So the soap opera is told and unfolds<br>

I suppose it's old potna, but the beat goes on<br>

Da da dum da dum da da<br>




No more games, I'ma change what you call rage <br>

Tear this mothafuckin roof off like 2 dogs caged <br>

I was playin in the beginnin, the mood all changed <br>

I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage <br>

But I kept rhymin and stepwritin the next cypher <br>

Best believe somebody's payin the pied piper<br>

All the pain inside amplified by the fact <br>

That I can't get by with my 9 to 5 <br>

And I can't provide the right type of life for my family <br>

Cuz man, these goddam food stamps don't buy diapers <br>

And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life <br>

And these times are so hard and it's getting even harder <br>

Tryin to feed and water my seed, plus <br>

See dishonor caught up bein a father and a prima donna <br>

Baby mama drama's screamin on and <br>

Too much for me to wanna <br>

Stay in one spot, another jam or not <br>

Has gotten me to the point, I'm like a snail <br>

I've got to formulate a plot fore I end up in jail or shot <br>

Success is my only mothafuckin option, failure's not <br>

Mom, I love you, but this trail has got to go <br>

I cannot grow old in Salem's lot <br>

So here I go is my shot.<br>

Feet fail me not cuz maybe the only opportunity that I got<br>




You can do anything you set your mind to, man<br>
