KSI continues his winning streak by linking up with the one and only Lil Wayne on his new single, 'Lose'.

Check out the lyrics to 'Lose' and what they really mean below.

Light me up like amphetamines - Amphetamines are a group of drugs that abnormally speed up the function of the brain and body. They are stimulant drugs used to stay awake and energised, and can be legal or illegal.

I'ma need some extermination, I'm buggin' out - Wayne demonstrates a play on words here, using the term 'bugging out' to explain that he's stressed and confused alongside the word 'extermination', often used when referring to the removal of bugs, vermin and critters.

She gon' have me turnin' in my grave when I'm underground - Here, Weezy explains that seeing his love interest with someone else is so painful, he'll be turning in his grave even when he's gone.

[Intro: KSI]
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

[Refrain: KSI]
I'm gon' need therapy
'Cause you're not here with me
Light me up like amphetamines, yeah (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I don't do guarantees

[Pre-Chorus: Lil Wayne]
I, I, I-I
Wish I could lie

[Chorus: Lil Wayne]
You got me fallin' thinkin' of you (Thinkin' of you)
But that's the one thing I shouldn't do (I shouldn't do)
I, I know the truth (Know the truth)
I, I know that you're just one more thing to lose

[Verse 1: Lil Wayne]
Uh, she loves me, she loves me not
Patience, I'm runnin' out
Walkin' all over me, made me a stompin' ground
Baby, you f**ked around, gave me the run-around
Makin' me wonder how crazy and dumb I sound
Takin' me up and down, baby, I'm comin' down
I'ma need some extermination, I'm buggin' out
Stay for another round, maybe she'll come around
She gon' have me turnin' in my grave when I'm underground
Sore loser, I saw you with him, I almost threw up
Don't shoot her, don't talk to her
There's plenty fish in the sea and I miss your b**ch
Like my cute thing, you got me fallin' for you
With no wings on, no parachute
Bring a star back for you
They say love's a lost art
I draw that for you and I fall back for you

[Chorus: KSI & Lil Wayne]
You got me fallin' thinkin' of you (You got me fallin')
But that's the one thing I shouldn't do (The one thing that I shouldn't do)
I, I know the truth (Know the truth, I know the truth)
I, I know that you're just one more thing to lose

[Verse 2: KSI]
I be actin' out, I know, I know
When I stare at you, I lose control
And I'm hopin' you're not psychic (Psychic)
Hotter than the devil but you're righteous (Yeah)
I'm addicted to the whole of you (Whole of you)
Calling 'cause I needed more (More)
Stalling 'cause you know I fall
My whole demeanor and all, the fact of me losin' you (You)
Comparin' and stuck in a loop (Loop)
Grow old 'til there's nothin' to do (Do)
I'm alone in this space and my story is endin' with you

[Pre-Chorus: KSI]
I, I, I-I
Wish I could lie

[Chorus: KSI & Lil Wayne]
You got me fallin' thinkin' of you (You got me fallin', You got me fallin')
But that's the one thing I shouldn't do (I shouldn't do, The one thing that I shouldn't do)
I, I know the truth (Know the truth, I know the truth)
I, I know that you're just one more thing to lose

[Refrain: Lil Wayne]
I'm gon' need therapy (Oh, no)
You naked next to me (Oh, oh, yeah)
Light me up like amphetamines, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
No, I don't do guarantees (Guarantees)

[Outro: Lil Wayne]
I, I, I-I
Wish I could lie
