Текст песни Eminem - Lose yourself

Look, if you had one shot or one opportunity

To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment

Would you capture it or just let it slip?

[Verse 1]

Yo, his palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy

There is vomit on his sweater already

Moms forgettin’ he’s nervous

But on the surface he looks calm and ready

To drops bombs, but he keeps on forgetting

What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud

He opens his mouth but the words won’t come out

He’s choking, how? Everybody’s jokin’ now

The clock’s run out, time’s up, over BLOW!

Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity

Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked, he’s so mad

But he won’t give up that easy, no he won’t have it

He knows his whole back’s to these ropes

It don’t matter, he’s dope, he knows that

But he’s broke, he’s so sad that he knows

When he goes back to this mobile home

That’s when it’s back to the lab again, yo

This whole rhapsody, better go capture this moment

And hope it don’t collapse on him

[Chorus]

You better lose yourself in the music

The moment you own it you better never let it go, oh

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

Cuz opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

You better lose yourself in the music

The moment you own it you better never let it go, oh

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

Cuz opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

You better

[Verse 2]

Soul’s escapin’ through this hole’s that is gaping

This world is mines for the taking

Make me king as we move toward a new world order

A normal life is boring

But superstardom’s close to post mortem

It only grows harder, homie grows hotter

He blows us all over, these hoes is all on him

Coast to coast shows, he’s known as the Globetrotter

Lonely roads got him

He knows he’s grown farther from home, he’s no father

He goes home and barely knows his own daughter

But hold ya nose cuz here goes the cold water

These hoes don’t want him no mo’, he’s cold prada

They moved on to the next shmo who flows

Who nose dove and sold nada

And so the so proper

His toll, it unfolds and I suppose it’s old, partner

But the beat goes on

Duh duh doe, duh doe, dah dah dah dah

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

No more games, I’ma change for due called rage

Tear this muthafuckin’ roof off like two dogs caged

I was playin’ in the beginnin’, the mood all changed

I’ve been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage

But I kept rhymin’ and stepped writin’ the next cipher

Best believe somebody’s payin’ the pied piper

All the pain inside amplified by the

Fact that I can’t get by with my nine to five

And I can’t provide the right type of life for my family

Cuz, man, these goddamn food stamps don’t buy diapers

And there’s no movie, there’s no Mekhi Pfifer

This is my life and these times are so hard

And it’s gettin’ even harder tryin’ to feed and water

My seed plus teeter-totter

Caught up between bein’ a father and a pre-madonna

Baby momma drama, screamin’ on her

Too much for me to wanna stay in one spot

Another damn or not has gotten me to the point

I’m like a snail, I’ve got to formulate a plot

Or end up in jail or shot

Success is my only muthafuckin’ option, failure’s not

Momma love you but this trailer’s got to go

I cannot grow old in Salem’s Lot

So here I go, it’s my shot

Feet fail me not

Cuz maybe the only opportunity that I got

[Chorus]

[Outro]

Duh doo

You can do anything you set your mind to, man
