“LOST FOREVER” by Travis Scott (ft. James Blake and Westside Gunn)

The title of this song, as implied in the outro leading into the first verse, does find the vocalist “lost forever”, though in a “wonderful”, not bad, way. Theoretically, what Travis, James and Chuck Senrick are referring to is something like being “lost” or caught up in an enviable lifestyle, complete with the likes of pricey vehicles, trips to exotic islands and of course the presence of hot ladies.

But beyond the early goings, the lyrics don’t really harp on the titular theme, i.e. that which is established in the intro. Instead they are more generally braggadocious in nature, i.e. the two primary vocalists pointing out different ways in which they are living that life.

Travis’s focus is primarily on his wealth, “power” and, more so than anything as far as his verse is concerned, interactions with romantic interests. Meanwhile Westside, being the artist that he is, puts more of a premium on depicting himself as being illicitly active on the streets, such as ‘whipping’, i.e. processing, cocaine and being a gunslinger. But there are a few allusions to his wealth embedded within also.

“Lost, have you ever been lost?
Lost, forever
And how wonderful, how wonderful
Wonderful, how wonderful (Lost)
How wonderful, how wonderful
How you are, forever”
