Charted: 55
  • Breathe in right away
    Nothing seems to fill this place
    I need this every time
    So take your lies, get off my case
    Someday I will find
    A love that flows through me like this
    This will fall away, this will fall away

    You're getting closer
    To pushing me off of life's little edge
    'Cause I'm a loser
    And sooner or later you know I'll be dead
    You're getting closer
    You're holding the rope and I'm taking the fall
    'Cause I'm a loser, I'm a loser, yeah

    This is getting old
    I can't break these chains that I hold
    My body's growing cold
    There's nothing left of this mind or my soul
    Addiction needs a pacifier, the buzz of this poison is taking me higher
    This will fall away, this will fall away

    You're getting closer
    To pushing me off of life's little edge
    'Cause I'm a loser
    And sooner or later you know I'll be dead
    You're getting closer
    You're holding the rope and I'm taking the fall
    'Cause I'm a loser, I'm a loser, yeah

    You're getting closer
    To pushing me off of life's little edge
    'Cause I'm a loser
    And sooner or later you know I'll be dead
    You're getting closer
    You're holding the rope and I'm taking the fall
    'Cause I'm a loser, I'm a loser, yeah

    You're getting closer
    To pushing me off of life's little edge
    'Cause I'm a loser
    And sooner or later you know I'll be dead
    You're getting closer
    You're holding the rope and I'm taking the fall
    'Cause I'm a loser, I'm a loser, yeah Writer/s: BRADLEY KIRK ARNOLD, MATTHEW DARRICK ROBERTS, ROBERT TODD HARRELL

  • Michael from Owingsmills , Mdits pretty hard to believe this song is pop but it is i think this song talks about all the downs in his life and he giveing up and giveing in he tired of fighting for something like 1 step forward 2 steps back never getting any where in life
  • Kayla from Oklahoma City, OkThis song is freakin' awesome... not as good as Kryptonite, but still good. I guess everyone feels like this sometime in their life...
  • Cody from Wasilla, AkTo me, this song has allusions to suicide. Example: "Nothing seems to fill this place, sooner or later you know i'll be dead, holding the rope and taking the fall". But it also references drugs.
  • Anthony from Cape May, NjReminder of some high school days, this song gives loser a very general meaning..
  • Alyssa from Houston, TxI love this song....when I first saw the music video on youtube I actually started to cry...it's a great song and it has a lot of meaning...one of my favorite songs...
  • Dale from Santa Fe, NmDefinitely the best 3 Doors Down song.
  • Faruk from Vienna, AustriaI guess everyone can sometimes relate to this song, because nobody feels perfect all the time... great song...
  • Andrew from Brunswick, Mei see myself as the guy that Arnold went to high-school with, as i am...well was very much involved in drugs and my life was heading into a downward spiral. it defintaly shined through my social skills, as i soon fell down a hole and i felt as though everyone was looking down on me, even my friends.
  • Ashley from Moncton, CanadaYes, many of us are losers, myself included! But I'm a semi-intelligent, intellectual, creative, and music, art and poetry loving loser! I'm just a loser because I don't care about anything anymore, and it's pretty okay with me. This song is probably my favourite 3 Doors Down song, probably because I don't really like them that much and I don't know many of their songs, but this song is really awesome.
  • Jacob from Houston, TxThis song is awesome I can relate 2 it so well....
  • Suki from N/a, Inlove this song, because i'm a loser a well
  • Heather from Plattsburgh, Nyme too.. not what i tought it was about though...
  • Rachel from Waurika, OkI'm a loser... You can ask all my friends they are losers too. Kidding. I like this song!
