RSIEH: Marsha Ambrosius Lose Myself

Marsha Ambrosius

I know I haven’t done this and a few other themed post in a while and to even to do a non Hip Hop song is new ground but this song deserves It. I remember hearing this song and thought it was the highlight of the whole Late Nights Early Morning album. There is a truth to the song and her vocals and the feeling she puts into the song brings that truth to the forefront. This to me is that anti baggage song, that song that says yes you have to let go so you don’t mess up what you have now. Being honest that is a hard thing to do and that is what the vibe of this song is about to me. You hear the fear and yearning and needing to let go of that pain that the past caused because there is a reason to love right here right now.

So yes, I guess I’m now expanding Realest Shit I Ever Heard to other genres of music starting with this song. Not sure how radio or BET or even VH1 Soul feels about this song, not sure if it has a video to be honest, but it is that shit on youtube. I heard there is a video of Lauryn Hill singing it, which I could easily hear her doing this song with just as much feeling and compassion as Marsha showcased.

“Lose Myself”

I can love you better

Lose myself in love ..

I used to do it for the love a long time ago

And all I ever wanted was love

I used to love without fear a long time ago

And all I ever wanted was love

Then somebody came around and tried to hurt me

Try to make me feel like I was unworthy

Took a pure love and tried to make it dirty

Truth was they never did deserve me no!

I had to lose myself so I could love you better

I had to lose myself, had to lose myself so I could

Love you better, lose myself in love

And that’s just the way it is?

Couldn’t tell me I was in love when I needed it

When, all I ever wanted was love.

Should a told me I was worth receiving it

But all I ever wanted was love

There’s something awkward about the selflessness it

Takes to

Give love and the good that it makes you!

True love can never really forsake you

But it took a little while just for me to see!

I had to lose myself so I could love you better

I had to lose myself, had to lose myself so I could

Make it better

Had to lose myself, had to lose myself

So I could love you better

Lose myself in love

And that’s just the way it is?

I had a paralyzing fear of facing failure

And I couldn’t love you perfectly with that fear in my head

So I perilously had to face the danger

So I could come back and love you whole instead

All of your soul I said!

So I could make it better

I had to lose myself had to lose myself

So I could love you better

Had to lose myself, had to lose myself so I could

Make it better

Lose myself in love

And that’s just the way it is

And so it goes that I never meant to hurt you

Couldn’t stay but I never meant to desert you

Whole lot a things I just had to work through

Time to heal and restore my self-worth too

Confrontation of my fears and anxiety

Cried a whole lot of years I suffered quietly

And though it may have taken years I can finally

Tell you that you were always on my mind!

I had to lose myself so I could love you better

Had to lose myself, had to lose myself so I could

Love you better baby better baby

Had to lose myself, had to lose myself

So I could love you better baby

Had to lose myself had to lose myself so I could love you better baby

Had to lose myself in love

Yeah, so I can love you better baby lose myself in love

Lose myself in love

And that’s just the way it is!

Takes strength to absorb all the abuse I did

Great love to absorb all the misuse I did

Hey baby it’s not an excuse I give.

And I’d do it all again because for you I live

Takes strength to absorb all the abuse I did

Great love to absorb all the misuse I did

Hey baby it’s not an excuse I give.

And I’d do it all again because for you I live

Had to lose myself so I could love you better baby

Had to lose myself in love, so I could love you better baby

Had to lose myself in love again

So I could love you better baby baby

Had to lose myself in love again

So I could love you better baby baby baby

I can love you better baby, I could love you better , I could love you better

I can love you better I could love you better I could love you better

It sure feels right

That’s just the way it is
