Eminem | Lose Yourself

Check out this blog!


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?


His palms are _1_, knees weak, arms are _2_

There's _3_ on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti

He's nervous, but on the _4_ he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,

but he keeps on forgetting what he _5_ down,

the whole _6_ goes so loud

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

He's _7_ how, everybody's joking now

The clock's run out, time's up over, bloah!

Snap back to _8_, Oh there goes _9_

Oh, there goes Rabbit, he _10_

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 _11_

It don't matter, he's dope

He knows that, but he's broke

He's so _12_ that he knows

When he goes back to his _13_ home, that's when it's

Back to the _14_ again, yo

This whole rhapsody

He better go _15_ this moment and hope it don't pass him


You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

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

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

(You better)


The soul's escaping, through this _16_ that is gaping

This world is mine for the _17_

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

A normal life is boring, but _18_ ‘s close to post mortem

It only grows harder, only grows hotter

He blows us all over these hoes is all on him

Coast to coast shows, he's known as the _19_

Lonely roads, God only knows

He's grown _20_ from home, he's no father

He goes home and barely knows his own _21_

But hold your nose 'cause here goes the cold water

His hoes don't want him no more, he's cold product

They moved on to the next schmoe who flows

He nose dove and sold _22_

So the _23_ is told and unfolds

I suppose it's old partner but the beat goes on

Da da dum da dum da da


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

Tear this motherfucking roof off like 2 dogs caged

I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed

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

But I kept rhyming and stepped right into the next cypher

Best believe somebody's paying the pied piper

All the pain inside amplified by the fact

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

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

Cause man, these goddam food stamps don't buy diapers

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

And these times are so hard, and it's getting even harder

Trying to feed and water my seed, plus

Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a prima donna

Baby mama drama's screaming on and

Too much for me to wanna

Stay in one spot, another day of monotony

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

I've got to formulate a plot or I end up in jail or shot

Success is my only motherfucking option, failure's not

Mom, I 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, this may be the only opportunity that I got



You can do anything you set your mind to, man
