Lose Yourself Lyrics By Eminem

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?

Yo! His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There’s vomit on his sweater already: Mom’s spaghetti
He’s nervous, but on the surface, he looks calm and ready
To drop 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 joking now
The clock’s run out, time’s up, over, blaow!
Snapback to reality, ope there goes gravity, ope
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 stagnant, 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 pass him, and

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 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…

His soul’s escaping through this hole that is gaping
This world is mine 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, it’s all over
These hoes is all on him, coast-to-coast shows
He’s known as the Globetrotter, lonely roads
God only knows, he’s grown farther from home, he’s no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose, ’cause here goes the cold water
These hoes don’t want him no mo’, he’s cold product
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
He nose-dove and sold nada, and so the soap opera
Is told, it unfolds, I suppose it’s old, partner
But the beat goes on: da da dum da dum da da da da

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 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…

No more games, I’ma change what you call rage
Tear this motherfuckin’ roof off like two dogs caged
I was playin’ in the beginning, the mood all changed
I’ve been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhymin’ and stepped right in the next cypher
Best believe somebody’s payin’ 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 goddamn food stamps don’t buy diapers
And there’s no movie, there’s no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
And these times are so hard, and it’s gettin’ even harder
Tryna feed and water my seed, plus teeter-totter
Caught up between bein’ a father and a prima donna
Baby mama drama, screamin’ on her, too much for me to wanna
Stay in one spot, another day of monotony’s
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 motherfuckin’ 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 better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go (go)
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This 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 (go)
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better…

You can do anything you set your mind to, man

Lose Yourself Song Lyrics In Hindi

देखो, अगर एक निशाना है,एक मौका है
उन सब चीज़ो को मुट्ठी मैं करने के लिए जो तुम चाहते हो, एक पल
क्या तुम उसे पकड़ लोगे, या फिर फिसल जाने दोगे?

उसके हाथ गीले है, घुटने कमज़ोर, बाँह भारी,
उसकी जर्सी पर अभी से ही उलटी है, मम्मी कि सब्ज़ी,
वह घबराया हुआ है, पर स्टेज पर वह शांत और धूम मचाने के लिए तैयार है,
पर वह भूल जाता है जो उसने लिखा है,
पूरी भीड़ चिलाने लगती है
वह अपना मुह खोलता है पर उसमे से शब्द नहीं निकलते,
वह अटक गया, सब लोग मजाक करने लगे है
वक़्त निकल जाता है, समय समाप्त, खत्म!
वह असलियत मैं वापस आ गया, ओह वह आया गुरुत्वकर्षन,
ओह, वह गया खरगोश, उसकी सांस रुक गयी,
वह पागल हो गया है, पर वह इतनी आसानी से जाने नहीं देगा,
उसके पास वह नहीं है, उसे पता है उसकी पीठ इस रस्सी से,
पर यह फर्क नहीं पड़ता, वह नशे मैं है, उसे पता है पर वह कंगाल है,
वह इतना निश्चल है, उसे पता है,
जब वह अपने उस जुगी झोपडी मैं जाता है, तभी यह होता है,
वापिस वह अपनी कार्यशाला मैं जाता है, यह पूरा चरण गीत,
बेहतर होगा कि वह जाये और इस पल को अपने कब्ज़े मैं कर ले,
उम्मीद करो कि यह पल इसे पीछे न छोड़ दे।

तुम अपने आपको संगीत मैं भुला दो, वह पल,
जो तुम्हारा होगा, तुम उसे कभी जाने मत दो,
तुम्हारे पास एक ही वार है, वार करने का यह मौका मत खोना,
यह मौका दुनिया मैं एक बार ही आता है।

तुम्हारी आत्मा भाग रही है, इस छेद से जो बंद होने वाला है,
होने के लिए यह दुनिया मेरी है,
राजा बनादो मुझे, जैसे हम एक नए नियम कि तरफ बढ़ते है,
यह आम ज़िंदगी बोरिंग है, पर यह शहंशागिरी पोस्ट मोर्टेम कि तरह है,
पर यह और सख्त हो जाता है, और जिमी और खूबसूरत हो जाता है ,
उसने अपना निशाना लगा लिया, हो गया ख़तम, सारी रंडियाँ उसके ऊपर है,
दुनिया के हर कोने मैं उसका नाम हो जाता है,
अकेली सड़के, भगवान् ही जाने,
वह अपने घर से दूर बड़ा हुआ है, वह अभी बाप नहीं बना,
वह घर जाता है, मुश्किल से अपनी बेटी को पहचान पाता है,
पर अपनी सांस रोक लो क्योंकि यह आया ठंडा पानी,
उसकी रंडियां उसे अब नहीं चाहती, वह अब बिलकुल ठंडा हो चूका है,
यह लडकियां अब उस मुर्ख पर गिरती है जो अभी हिट है,
वह डूब गया और कुछ नहीं कर पाया
टीवी पर इसके बारे मैं दिखाया गया, मुझे लगा वह मेरा पुराना साथी है,
और धुन बजती है डा डा डम…

और कोई खेल नहीं, मैं बदल गया हूँ गुस्से मैं,
इस मादरचोद छत को तोड़ दो जैसे दो कुत्ते कैद मैं हो,
मैं पहले खेल रहा था, पर अब मेरा मन बदल गया है,
मुझे चबाया गया, थूक दिया गया और मंच से उठा कर फ़ेंक दिया गया,
पर मैं धुन मिलाता गया और अगले अन्तरे मैं घुस गया,
पर यकीं मनो कि कोई पाइड पाइपर को सुपारी दे रहा है,
मेरे अंदर के सारे दर्द कि आवाज़ तेज़ हो गयी इस तथ्य से
कि अपने आप से नहीं निपट सकता 9 से 5
और अपनी परिवार कि सही परवरिश नहीं कर सकता,
क्योंकि इस राशन मैं डाइपर नहीं खरीद नहीं सकता,
और यह कोई फ़िल्म नहीं है, यहाँ कोई मिकी फीफर नहीं है, यह मेरी ज़िंदगी है,
और यह समय इतना कठिन होता जा रहा है,
कोशिश मैं जुटा हु अपने पोधो को पानी दे सकू, और
इन किलकारियों कि वजह से फस गया बाप और दाई बन कर,
बेबी मम्मी चिल्ला कर ड्रामा कर रही है,
मुश्किल हो गया है मेरे लिए एक जगह पर रहना, एक और वेसा ही दिन,
यह मुझे एक मोड़ पर ले आया है, मैं एक घोंघे कि तरह हूँ,
मुझे एक शाजिश बनानी है नहीं तो मैं जैल मैं हूँगा या मर गया हूँगा,
सफलता ही एक मादरचोद तरीका है, विफलता नहीं,
मां मैं तुम्हे बहुत प्यार करता हूँ, पर इस झोपडी को जाना होगा,
मैं इस स्लम मैं बड़ा नहीं हो सकता
तो यह है मेरा वार,
मेरे दोस्तों, मुझे निराश मत करना, यही एक मौका है जो मुझे मिला है।

Lose Yourself Lyrics in Spanish

Piérdete a ti mismo

Mira, si solo tuvieses un tiro, o una oportunidad
Para capturar todo lo que alguna vez quisiste – un momento
¿Lo capturarías o simplemente dejarías que se te escapara?

Sus palmas están sudorosas, sus rodillas débiles
Su brazos pesados, hay vómito en su suéter, el espagueti de mamá
Él está nervioso pero por fuera pareciera estar listo
Para dejar caer las bombas, pero continúa olvidando lo que apunto
Toda la multitud es ensordecedora
Abre su boca pero las palabras no salen
Se asfixia, todos se burlan ahora
El reloj se agota, el tiempo se acabo, bloah
Regresa repentinamente a la realidad, la gravedad lo golpea
Esto se acabo para “Rabbit”, se asfixio [1]
Él está muy enfadado pero no se rendirá tan fácilmente, no
Él no aceptará esto, sabe que su espalda esta contra las cuerdas
Pero eso no importa, él es bueno en esto
Y lo sabe pero no tiene dinero
Está estancado y lo sabe
Cuando regresa a su casa rodante se da cuenta que
Debe ir de regreso al estudio otra vez
Esta rapsodia completa
Será mejor que capturé este momento y ojalá no lo deje escapar

[Gancho]
Es mejor que te pierdas a ti mismo en la música y en el momento
En que la poseas, será mejor que nunca la dejes ir
Solo tienes un tiro, no pierdas tu oportunidad de disparar
Esta oportunidad se da una sola vez en la vida

Su alma se escapa por ese agujero abierto [2]
El mundo está esperando que lo conquiste
Háganme rey mientras nos encaminamos hacia un nuevo orden mundial
Una vida normal es aburrida, pero el superestrellato es similar a
Un estado de post mortem
Todo se hace más difícil, todo se hace más ardiente
Nos asombra a todos, las chicas están sobre el
Aparece en toda clase de shows, se le conoce como el trotamundos
Va por caminos vacíos que solo Dios conoce
Se aleja cada vez más de casa, no es un padre
Cuando regresa a casa apenas y reconoce a su propia hija
Pero pincha tu nariz porque aquí viene un golpe de agua fría
Sus chicas no lo quieren más, es noticia vieja
Ahora siguen a la nueva celebridad del momento
Él se lanzo en picada y no vendió nada
Y así, esta telenovela se cuenta y desarrolla
Supongo que es una historia vieja y común, compañero [3]
Pero el ritmo continúa
Da da dum da dum da da

[Gancho]

No más juegos, transformaré a lo que llama furia
Y desgarrare este maldito techo como lo harían 2 perros enjaulados
Simplemente estaba jugando al principio pero la situación cambio
Me comieron vivo y me abuchearon para que saliera del escenario
Pero yo seguí rimando y escribiendo mi siguiente ad lib.
Creo que alguien más está pagando las consecuencias de mis actos
Todo el dolor que llevo dentro se amplifica por el hecho de que
No puedo mantener mi trabajo
Y no puedo proveer a mi familia con un buen estilo de vida
Porque estos malditos cupones para comida no compran pañales
Esto no es una película, Mekhi Phifer no sale aquí, esta es mi vida [4]
Y los tiempos son difíciles y todo se pone más difícil aún
Cuando trato de alimentar y criar a mi hija, además estoy atrapado
Entre ser un padre y un prima donna a la vez
Y el drama grita demasiado como para que yo quiera
Quedarme en un solo lugar y soportar otro día monótono
He llegado al punto de que soy como un caracol
Debo ya sea idear un plan, o terminaré en la cárcel o muerto
El éxito es mi única maldita opción, el fracaso no lo es
Mamá, te amo, pero este mediocre debe irse [5]
No puedo quedarme y envejecer en Salem’s lot [6]
Así que aquí voy, usaré mi único tiro
Pies, no me fallen, porque tal vez sea la única oportunidad que tenga

[Gancho]

Puedes hacer cualquier cosa que te propongas

Lose yourself song lyrics by eminem

Lose Yourself Song Review

Every once in a while we witness songs that define a decade, defines a singer, and defines a genre.
“Lose Yourself” was his shining moment.

The track was released as a single from the movie ‘8 Mile’ (released in 2002) soundtrack: ‘Loosely’
Based on the real-life of Eminem or real name Marshall Mathers.

In the ‘8 Mile’ movie, Eminem performed excellently and gave his own character a life of its own and wrote the song “Lose Yourself” during the shoot of the movie. The song was released before the release of the movie on October 28, 2002.

Even today, ‘Lose Yourself’ is known to be the best hip-hop rap song ever released. ‘Lose Yourself won The Oscar Academy Award for one of the best original songs in 2003 and also won a Grammy for ‘Best Rap Song’ and ‘Best Rap Solo Performance’ ‘Lose Yourself’ is indeed one of his most famous songs.

Not just in the United States but ‘Lose Yourself’ also topped the charts in around 18 other countries and became the number one spot on Billboard Hot 100 chart around that time.

It was also named in the ‘500 Greatest Songs of All Time’ by Rolling Stones magazine where only three songs from hip hop were made into the list.

The song made around 5 million dollars in sales as per RIAA but was recorded to have been downloaded 6.7 million times as per October 2015 in the United States alone.

The song is like a summary of the movie ‘8 Mile’ and also a part of the movie too.

The first verse is the story of a man who is starting to take his first steps in the rapping industry. The main guy of the song is getting nervous as he goes to perform. He believed he is all prepared but as he comes on the top of the stage, he gets overwhelmed by the crowd and is not able to perform and finally ends up standing stunned there, not able to move or say anything. He gets disheartened by the crowd and moves out of the stage back to writing and improving his writing.

The 2nd verse in the song shows how the protagonist is blowing up to be a prominent star in the music and rap industry and how his career is affecting his life.

He ends up being far from his family, distancing himself from the family being alone as narrated in the song lyrics.

He's grown farther from home, he's no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter

Then we come to know that this isn’t even the worst part, he then explains how the rap industry got hold of the next “big” rapping start and how the ‘STAR’ later ends up not being famous anymore.

In the third verse, Eminem talks about the hardships he had to suffer in balancing his work and his family and his rapping career. Eminem refers to the actor Mekhi Phifer, who has a crucial role in the ‘8 Mile’ movie, saying that what he is talking about in the song is about real-life where ‘There is no Mekhi Phifer’.

It is in the end about not losing any opportunity, since ‘This opportunity comes once in a lifetime that’s all about the song.
