You're Losing Me
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You say, "I don't understand," and I say, "I know you don't"
We thought a cure would come through in time, now, I fear it won't
Remember lookin' at this room, we loved it 'cause of the light
Now, I just sit in the dark and wonder if it's time

Do I throw out everything we built or keep it?
I'm getting tired even for a phoenix
Always risin' from the ashes
Mendin' all her gashes
You might just have dealt the final blow

Stop, you're losin' me
Stop, you're losin' me
Stop, you're losin' me
I can't find a pulse
My heart won't start anymore
For you
'Cause you're losin' me

Every mornin', I glared at you with storms in my eyes
How can you say that you love someone you can't tell is dyin'?
I sent you signals and bit my nails down to the quick
My face was gray, but you wouldn't admit that we were sick

And the air is thick with loss and indecision
I know my pain is such an imposition
Now, you're runnin' down the hallway
And you know what they all say
You don't know what you got until it's gone

Stop, you're losin' me
Stop, you're losin' me
Stop, you're losin' me
I can't find a pulse
My heart won't start anymore
For you
'Cause you're losin' me
'Cause you're losin' me
Stop (stop) 'cause you're losin' me

My heart won't start anymore ('cause you're losin' me)
My heart won't start anymore ('cause you're losin' me)

How long could we be a sad song
'Til we were too far gone to bring back to life?
I gave you all my best me's, my endless empathy
And all I did was bleed as I tried to be the bravest soldier
Fighting in only your army
Frontlines, don't you ignore me
I'm the best thing at this party
(You're losin' me)
And I wouldn't marry me either
A pathological people pleaser
Who only wanted you to see her
And I'm fadin', thinkin'

"Do something, babe, say something" (say something)
"Lose something, babe, risk something" (you're losin' me)
"Choose something, babe, I got nothing (got nothing)
To believe
Unless you're choosin' me"

You're losin' me
Stop (stop, stop), you're losin' me
Stop (stop, stop), you're losin' me



I can't find a pulse
My heart won't start anymore

Overall Meaning

In the song "You're Losing Me", Taylor Swift sings about a relationship that is falling apart. She starts off by acknowledging that her partner doesn't understand what is going on but goes on to describe how they had hoped that things would get better with time, but now, she fears that it won't. She thinks back to how they used to love the room they are in because of the light, but now, she sits in the dark and wonders if it's time to give up on everything they built.


In the chorus, she tells her partner to stop losing her. She can't find a pulse, and her heart won't start anymore for them. She is at her wits' end as she has been trying to save the relationship but in vain. The air is thick with indecision, and she feels that her pain is such an imposition. She sends signals to her partner, but they can't see how much she is hurting. She thinks about how long they can be a sad song before they are too far gone to bring back to life.


Towards the end of the song, Taylor expresses how she has been trying her best to be the bravest soldier fighting in their army, but all she did was bleed. She ends by challenging her partner to do something, say something, or risk something unless they choose her; they are losing her.

Graciela Alderete

my face was gray but you wouldn't admit that we were sick

lose something babe, RISK something (you're losing me)



Lu

You say 'I don't understand' and I say 'I know you don't'
We thought a cure would come through in time, now I fear it won't
Remember looking a this room, we loved it 'cause of the light
Now I just sit in the dark and wonder if it's time

Do I throw out everything we built or keep it?
I'm getting tired even for a phoenix
Always risin’ from the ashes
Mendin’ all her gashes
You might just have dealt the final blow

Stop, you're losin’ me
Stop, you're losin’ me
Stop, you're losin’ me
I can't find a pulse
My heart won't start anymore
For you, 'cause you're losin’ me

Every morning I glared at you with storms in my eyes
How can you say that you love someone you can't tell is dying
I sent you signals and bit my nails down to the quick
My face was gray but you wouldn't admit that we were sick
And the air is thick with loss and indecision
I know my pain is such an imposition
Now, you're running down the hallway
You know what they all say
'You don't know what you got, until it's gone'

Stop, you're losin’ me
Stop, you're losin’ me
Stop, you're losin’ me
I can't find a pulse, my heart won't start anymore
For you
'Cause you're losin’ me
'Cause you're losin’ me

Stop (stop), 'cause you're losin’ me
My heart won't start anymore ('cause you're losin’ me)
My heart won't start anymore ('cause you're losin’ me)

How long could we be a sad song
‘Til we were too far gone to bring back to life?
I gave you all my best me's, my endless empathy
And all I did was bleed as I tried to be the bravest soldier
Fighting in only your army
Front lines, don't you ignore me
I'm the best thing at this party (you're losin’ me)
And I wouldn't marry me either
A pathological people pleaser
Who only wanted you to see her

And I'm fading thinking
Do something babe, say something (say something)
Loose something babe, risk something (you're losin’ me)
Choose something babe, I've got nothing (got nothing)
To believe, unless, you're choosing me

You're losin’ me
Stop (stop, stop) you're losin’ me
Stop (stop, stop) you're losin’ me
I can't find a pulse
My heart won't start anymore

Went from “I hope I never lose you, I hope it never ends” to “Stop, you’re losing me.”

Went from “I’d marry you with paper rings” to “I wouldn’t marry me either.”

Went from “I've been sleepin' so long in a twenty-year dark night and now I see daylight” to “I just sit in the dark.”

New

Went from "We can leave the Christmas lights until January" to "remember looking at this room, we loved it 'cause o the light"
