Lose It

Oh Wonder

Lose It Lyrics

[Verse 1: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
Downtown we let it go
Sunset high and our bodies low
Blood rush in the hazy glow
My hands, your bones

Loose up we break the scene
One step deep as you fall to me
Heart clap, we skip a beat
Count one, two, three

[Pre-Chorus: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
And don’t you stop the music
Get into it
Won't you dance with me?
Find a place and lose it
You can do it

Won't you dance with me?
Move your feet and feel it in the space between
You gotta give yourself a moment, let your body be
We gotta lose it
We gotta lose it

[Chorus: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
Lose it, lose it, lose it
We gotta lose it
Lose it, lose it, lose it
We gotta lose it

[Verse 2: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
Your name I’ll never know
As we get down in the world below

Caught up in an overflow
My hands, your bones

Wide eyed, you look at me
Set on fire in a silver dream
Spin round you can feel the breeze
Count one, two, three


[Pre-Chorus: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
And don’t you stop the music
Get into it
Won't you dance with me?
Find a place and lose it
You can do it
Won't you dance with me?
Move your feet and feel it in the space between
You gotta give yourself a moment, let your body be
We gotta lose it
We gotta lose it

[Chorus: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
Lose it, lose it, lose it
We gotta lose it
Lose it, lose it, lose it
We gotta lose it

[Bridge: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
Make a spark, break the dark
Find a light with me
Who we are from the start
Won't you dance with me?

Make a spark, break the dark
Find a light with me
Who we are chasing stars
Won't you dance with me?
Won't you dance with me?

[Pre-Chorus: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
And don’t you stop the music
Get into it
Won't you dance with me?
Find a place and lose it
You can do it
Won't you dance with me?
Move your feet and feel it in the space between
You gotta give yourself a moment, let your body be
We gotta lose it
We gotta lose it'

[Chorus: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
Lose it, lose it, lose it
We gotta lose it
Lose it, lose it, lose it
We gotta lose it
Lose it (all), (we gotta) lose it, lose it (all)
We gotta lose it
Lose it (all), (we gotta) lose it, lose it (all)
We gotta lose it

[Outro: Josephine Vander Gucht & Anthony West]
Move your feet and feel it in the space between
You gotta give yourself a moment, let your body be
We gotta lose it
We gotta lose it

About “Lose It”

“Lose It” describes an encounter of sentimental and escapist proportions through dance, with Anthony and Josephine’s soft vocals giving way to a lively chorus.

“Lose It” was the sixth track released by London-based writing duo Oh Wonder in their quest to release one song every month for a year. It appeared on their self-titled debut album.

This is Josephine’s favorite song from their record:

It’s about just being totally free, losing yourself in a minute, and dancing on your own, not worrying about what anyone thinks of you.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    In an interview they spoke about the inspiration for this song, which is the same party that inspired “Technicolour Beat”.

    “Lose It” is about wildly dancing on your own. In the early hours of the morning, when the party was starting to simmer down, Josephine locked herself in the DJ room and put on Destiny’s Child, took all her clothes off and danced on her own for an hour. “Lose It” is about that untethering of yourself from life, and being totally immersed in a single moment rather than the wider landscape of reality. Sometimes you’ve gotta" ‘give yourself a moment and let your body be".
