“lose one’s mind”

Today, in my Intermedio 1B class, we discussed the difference between “miss” and “lose”. I said that you can say “lose one’s mind”, which means “perder la cabeza”, “perder la razón”. I mentioned a song which contains this expression. It’s called “Losing my mind”, by Liza Minnelli and Pet Shop Boys. Below you have a live version of the song. As an optional piece of homework, you can translate the song into Spanish and hand in the translation next week. Here is the lyrics:

“The sun comes up – I think about you
The coffee cup – I think about you
I want you so, it’s like I’m losing my mind
The morning ends – I think about you
I talk to friends and think about you
And do they know it’s like I’m losing my mind?
All afternoon doing every little chore
The thought of you stays bright
Sometimes I stand in the middle of the floor
Not going left – not going right
I dim the lights and think about you
Spend sleepless nights to think about you
You said you loved me, or were you just being kind?
Or am I losing
Losing my mind?
All afternoon doing every little chore
The thought of you stays bright
Sometimes I stand in the middle of the floor
Not going left – not going right
I dim the lights and think about you
Spend sleepless nights to think about you
You said you loved me
Or were you just being kind?
Or am I losing my mind?
Or am I losing my mind?
You said you loved me
Or were you just being kind?
Or am I losing my mind?
Or were you just being kind?
Or am I losing my mind?
Losing my mind?”
