The song, Like I’m Gonna Lose You Chords is the fourth track on Title, Meghan Trainor’s debut title album. Featuring John Legend, this record seems a more pessimistic view on life. It views love as something that is uncertain and end suddenly. Though the song is quite melancholic, its message is true. Maybe we need a song to realize that love should never be taken for granted after all.
The song is a ‘break’ from Trainor’s other songs like “All About That Bass,” “Better When I’m Dancin’”and “Dear Future Husband.” Stripped from the happy and lively beat, we can hear Trainor’s vocals in all its simplicity and sincerity in this track. Every note hit proves how heartfelt the message of the song is. We see a different angle of Trainor, without the fun and peculiar productions always present in her other songs.
Knowing that the track features John Legend, we are prepared that this song has all the feels and emotion needed for a perfect romantic duet. His silky warm voice fuses well with Trainor’s charming soprano, in a slow tempo ballad that can tug on your heartstrings. The sweet voice of Trainor supported by the strong vocals of Legend mix well into a soulful song about loving and losing.
The message of the song was emphasized more upon the release of the video, with Trainor in a candle-illuminated room, realizing that she can lose the one she loves at any moment, with montages of different kinds of love and with rain endlessly pouring. The video ends with Legend and Trainor holding hands and the rain finally clearing.
This ballad easily touches us deep, particularly those in love or are starting to fall in love. With this song we realize that all we really need in love is to understand that nothing lasts forever. Everything can end in a blink of an eye but that doesn’t mean we should let go. In fact, this means that we should hold on tighter to make more beautiful memories.
Filled with emotion, this Trainor song slaps us with the truth that love will not always be there. Though the song is different from her previous songs, it appealed to the public just as well because of the beautiful meaning conveyed and the fresh take on Trainor’s vocals. So, let’s all love like we are going to lose, because forever isn’t real but that doesn’t really matter when love is.
