Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Meghan Trainor:

Like I’m Gonna Lose You

Length: 3:45

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

I found myself dreaming in silver and gold
Like a scene from a movie that every broken heart knows
We were walking on moonlight, and you pulled me close
Split second and you disappeared and then I was all alone
I woke up in tears with you by my side
A breath of relief, and I realized
No, we’re not promised tomorrow
So I’m gonna love you like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna hold you like I’m saying goodbye
Wherever we’re standing, I won’t take you for granted
‘Cause we’ll never know when, when we’ll run out of time
So I’m gonna love you like I’m gonna lose you (lose you)
I’m gonna love you like I’m gonna lose you
