Rap Music Lyrics - Lost Remix by Coldplay & Jay-Z

One of the many collaborative pieces performed at the Grammys was "Lost" by rock group Coldplay featuring rap star Jay-Z. The number featured Coldplay's lead singer Chris Martin playing on piano while singing, then pounding the keys viciously for the melody as Jay-Z rapped his guest verse. Jay's verse discussing the harmful side effects of success has Jigga drop lines about everyone from Martin to Malcom, Biggie to Pac and Caesar to Jesus in this one. The track is currently available on Coldplay's Viva La Vida - Prospekt's March Edition.

Lost by Coldplay feat. Jay-Z
Official Lyrics

Sung Vocals (Chris Martin):
Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I'll stop
Doesn't mean I'm in a cross

Just because I'm hurting
Doesn't mean I'm hurt
Doesn't mean I didn't get what I deserve
No better and no worse

I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
And every door I ever tried was locked
Ooh-Oh, And I'm just waiting til' the shine wears off...

You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along may come
A big-ger one

And you'll be lost
Every river that you try to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
Ooh-Oh, And I'm just waiting til the firing stops
Ooh-Oh, And I'm just waiting till the shine wears off

Rap Verse (Jay-Z):
With the same sword they knight you
they gonna good night you
S--t it's only half if they like you
That ain't even the half what they might do
Don't believe me, ask Michael
See Martin, See Malcolm
See Biggie, See Pac,
see success and it's outcome
See Jesus see Judas
See Caesar see Brutus
See success is like suicide
Suicide it's a suicide
If you succeed prepare to be crucified
Media mettles
N----s sue you, you settle
Every step you take, they remind you you ghetto
So it's tough being Bobb-y Brown
To be Bobby then, you have to be Bobby now
Now the question "Is to have had and lost
better than not havin at all?" because I'm -

Ooh-Oh, And I'm just waiting til' the shine wears off
Ooh-Oh, And I'm just waiting til' the shine wears off
