Lose Yourself


Look if you had one shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
One moment
Would you capture it?
Or just let it slip? 
You better lose yourself
In the music
The moment
You want 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 
You better lose yourself
In the music
The moment
You want 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
Last Thursday, I was driving to a pre-graduation banquet (running late, as usual) and obviously feeling nervous about giving my five-minute speech.  My daughter was in the car with me and attuned to my mood so she put this song on the car stereo and we sang it twice to get me ready.  She said I sounded like Martin Luther King, Jr. when I was giving my speech ("I have a dream..." - I wish you could hear the trill and bass in her voice when she says that).  I loove the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. but on that particular evening, I was channeling the incomparable artist, Eminem.
