Poppe, Maddie - Not Losing You Lyrics




You don't know, if you belong here
You're afraid I won't stay long
While I lay in your arms dear
Can't you tell that you got me wrong

Boy, I'm telling you
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
My world's spinnin' on and on
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
But I'd stop it in a second 'cause

These dreams ain't all that they seem
I know that they could hurt me
Won't you hold my hand if they come true
'Cause I could get by and hold my head high if everything deserts me
But I'm not losing you

You got scars, they make you doubt
But you should know I won't leave more
I know it's hard when you give your everything, your everything
But just know that I'm still yours

Boy, I'm telling you
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
My world's spinnin' on and on
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
But I'd stop it in a second 'cause

These dreams ain't all that they seem
I know that they could hurt me
So won't you hold my hand if they come true
'Cause I could get by and hold my head high if everything deserts me
But I'm not losing you

You say honey tell me is this really gonna last forever
Will you be like the others I loved before
And I say even though my moods change just like the weather
I will still love you the same
Will love you me the same

Cause these dreams ain't all that they seem
I know that they could hurt me
So won't you hold my hand if they come true
'Cause I could get by and hold my head high if everything deserts me
But I'm not losing you
And no, I'm not losing you
No, I'm not losing you

You don't know if you belong here
But just know you got me wrong

Poppe, Maddie Not Losing You Comments
  1. Eric Austin

    Too bad there is an association with American Idol. She is a great songwriter. And a great singer. Never needed a talent show. Never deserved Simon and crew. Or is Simon even on it anymore, I've lost track.

  2. Emilie Christie

    Holy cow ✨🐮💫

  3. Sir RVS

    it hurts me i dunno

  4. Zsuzsa Farkas

    I was just watching American idol videos from every year randomly, then checked season winners
    Man. You have a voice that is just wow. Unbelievable
    I don't know how the hell it comes across, but I can feel all the love you got from your fam. You are really really good

  5. gtrblues

    I like her more each time I hear her.

  6. Graceful Narcissist Abuse Survivor

    Maddie, although your voice is different... you and your personality reminds me so much of Tori Kelly. Both beautiful people, inside out, keeping it classy... who totally ROCK great style.

  7. Shareena Borja

    I heard it from the radio and went back to find it. Then find out I liked her sonb already

  8. mike bigram

    Heard this song for the first time tonight and man... did it hit really deep. I'm a through and through rocker and this just made my top 5 favorite songs. Wonderful wonderful song.

  9. elephant35e

    This is an amazing song for this decade. One of the best songs in years!

  10. Blood Wolf

    The people how disliked the video are just jealous of her amazing voice

    I love chicken nuggets

    Blood Wolf No. Maddie sounds terrible smh. No talent at all. She is going absolutely NO where in life. She doesn’t have the look or voice to make far in the entertainment industry (with her strong a$$ chin/jawline, looking like miss piggy 🐷 🐽) For the love of god, I pray she stops singing and pursues a different career!

    Blood Wolf

    @I love chicken nuggets I don't want to start a fight your opinion is yours and mine is mine so please don't talk that shit about Maddie Poppe also if you don't have anything nice to stay then please shut up. Thanks

    I love chicken nuggets

    Blood Wolf Maddie sucks

    Blood Wolf

    @I love chicken nuggets As I said it's your opinion

  11. Catherine Moyer

    This is like the modern day Desperado

  14. Melissa Vela

    What’s the meaning behind this song? It sounds really deep and peaceful 💗

    S Hoff

    Melissa Vela she wrote this song for Caleb her boyfriend. To let him know that as long as she has him nothing else matters. That's why she says she could get by and hold her head high if everything desserts her, because she's not losing him. It was after a conversation they had when he was feeling a little down and unsure of himself. She wanted him to know as long as they have each other everything would be ok. I saw her talk about it in an interview.

  25. Faye Hansen

    Very common

  26. apersonthingy

    I've heard this song so many times at work. It took a while, but I finally found it.




    I hate it. That's why I'm here. My life is complete knowing I found it so that I could hate on it.

  40. mike vonkleist

    A true talent can go off key. They can and do. That's a master of music. Find a nuance. A small shade of color difference.

    Wow, Maddie! What a beautiful song. I've always been in love with your voice. You showcase your talent so well in this song.

  63. Zackery Holder

    When I first saw you on idol, I thought Dixie Chicks with a modern day Alison Krauss, voice of an Angel. And I personally sing country mostly, pretty much like your Caleb just a small town Arkansan and eventually I'll brave the waters of American idol/ The Voice as well, but anyways the main thing I wanted to say is you're awesome I have a huge crush and I knew from not even half way in the season that you and Caleb would hitch up, I called it haha xoxo

  64. Janet Phelps

    You are a great singer and writer because your a great person! I pray Caleb never loses track of a fabulous gift in you!!

  65. Craig Odem

    This song is a masterpiece. So sweet and so perfect for her voice.

    dragon rage and even if she doesn’t!! She is a rare gem, but it’s tough in the music industry today- based on popularity and who you know

  68. Steve Schiely

    Great song - is your CD at Walmart? Or?

    Amy C

    You can buy it from renewed purpose in Waverly iowa. You can also buy on their Facebook page and they will ship.

    Steve Schiely

    @Amy C Don't understand _ Maddie made an album from winning Idol and it is not sold in stores?

    S Hoff

    @Steve Schiely I tunes but physical copy Renewed Purpose or at a show. Crazy Right. I bought 3 one for me 2 as gifts.

  69. Kelvin Butler

    Just stunning. The lyrics and Maddie’s voice is haunting. Beautiful song.

  70. alphasxsignal

    She not wild enough like Miley Cyrus trash and she has a much better voice but the music industry just want trash people like Miley Cyrus.

  71. Angel Adriel

    Your voice is perfection.

  72. Victoria V
