Losing Grip is a song by Candian rock/pop singer Avril Lavigne. It is featured on Avril's debut album, Let Go, as the fourth single on the album.

Music videoEdit

The music video shows Avril performing in front of a large crowd. Shots of her making her way through a mass of people while pushing, punching and shoving interlude from time to time. There is also a scene where Avril jumps into the crowd and "crowd surfs". The audience had to practice this routine on other people before Avril was allowed to do so.

The music video was directed by Liz Friedlander and recorded at Angel Orensanz Foundation.

ReceptionEdit

Christina Saraceno of Allmusic noted that "Losing Grip" allowed Lavigne to "show off" her vocal ability during the song's "explosive rock chorus". Sal Cinquemani of Slant magazine also praised Avril's vocals and compared them to Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette.

In an AOL Radio listener's poll, "Losing Grip" was voted Avril's tenth best song.

AwardsEdit

"Losing Grip" was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, but lost to "Trouble" by Pink.

LyricsEdit

Are you aware of what you make me feel, baby
Right now I feel invisible to you, like I'm not real
Didn't you feel me lock my arms around you
Why'd you turn away?
Here's what I have to say I was left to cry there,
waiting outside there grinning with a lost stare
That's when I decided

[chorus]
Why should I care
Cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone
You, you need to listen I'm starting to trip,
I'm losing my grip and I'm in this thing alone

Am I just some chick you place beside you to take somebody's place
when you turn around can you recognize my face you used to love me,
you used to hug me
But that wasn't the case
Everything wasn't ok I was left to cry there
waiting outside there grinning with a lost stare
That's when I decided

[chorus]

Crying out loud I'm crying out loud
Crying out loud I'm crying out loud

Open your eyes
Open up wide
Why should I care
Cuz you weren't there
when I was scared I was so alone Why should I care
Cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone
Why should I care
If you don't care then I don't care were not going anywhere
Why should I care cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone
Why should I care If you don't care then I don't care were not going anywhere
