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
Tried to make me feel like I was unworthy
Took 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
I had to lose myself, had to lose myself so I could love you better
Lose myself in love and thats just the way it is

Couldnt tell me I was love when I needed it
And all I ever wanted was love
Should have told me just me because Im worth receiving it
And all I ever wanted was love

Theres is 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

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 thats just the way it is

I had a paralyzing fear facing failure
And I couldnt love you perfectly with fear in my head
So I peerlessly had to face the danger
So I could come back and love you whole instead

I love 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
I had to lose myself, lose myself so I could love you better
Lose myself in love and thats just the way it is

And so it goes that I never meant to hurt you
Couldnt stay but I never meant to desert you
Whole lot of things that I just had to work through
Time to heal and restore myself 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 make it 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 make it better
Lose myself in love and that was just the way

Takes strength to absorb all the abuse I did
Great love to absorb all the misuse I did
Hey baby, its not an excuse I give
And Id do it all again because for you I live

Takes strength to absorb all the abuse I did
Great love to absorb all the abuse I did
Hey baby, its not an excuse I give
And Id do it all again because for you I live

I had to lose myself so I could make it better
Had to lose myself, I had to lose myself so I could make it better
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 make it better
Lose myself in love and that was just the way
And that was just the way it is
