Music Friday: Meghan Trainor's 'Like I'm Gonna Lose You' Has the Singer Dreaming in Silver and Gold

Welcome to Music Friday when we bring you great songs with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today we feature Meghan Trainor singing her brand new release, "Like I'm Gonna Lose You," a jazzy ballad about never taking loved ones for granted and always making the most of life's precious moments.

In the first verse, Trainor sings, "I found myself dreaming in silver and gold / Like a scene from a movie that every broken heart knows / We were walking on moonlight and you pulled me close / Split second and you disappeared and then I was all alone."

Trainer, who co-wrote the song with Justin Weaver and Caitlyn Smith, explained to Digital Spy that the impassioned song was spawned by an all-too-real nightmare.

"['Like I'm Gonna Lose You' has] very emotional lyrics that take you to a real place," she said. "You know when you have those nightmares that your brother or sister or boyfriend just dies? And you wake up sweating and crying, and then you have to go check on them to make sure they're still alive, and they are. And you're like, 'Oh my God, thank God.' It's like, I'm going to love you like I'm going to lose you because I know what it feels like from that dream and I'm not going to let it happen."

Released just 24 days ago as the fourth single from her chart-topping album, Title, "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 this week at #95. With Trainor performing the song at the "2015 Billboard Music Awards" and on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, we expect "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" to catapult into the Top 20 in short time.

The song was originally intended to be a solo recording, but Trainor and her management team presented her demo to John Legend, who reportedly told Trainor, "I love this, I want to be a part of it. It's gonna be cool." The result is a beautiful collaboration between two of the music industry's brightest talents.

The music video depicts Trainor staring through the window of a candlelit room as the rain pours outside. Legend sings his part from the outside of the building, separated from Trainor by a paned-glass wall. Interspersed are scenes of companions standing in the rain. Among them are a mother and infant child, a homeless man and his dog, a woman and her elderly mother, a man on crutches and his girlfriend, and a soaked-to-the-skin Legend, who plays Trainor's love interest.

In the end, the sun emerges, the sky lightens and Trainor and Legend join hands as if to symbolize a love that has conquered all.

Trainer was recently in the news when she canceled her concert tour due to a hemorrhage on her vocal cords. The red-hot artist was ordered by her physician to completely refrain from singing during her recovery.

Fortunately, we have her official video below. Please enjoy Trainor and Legend performing "Like I'm Gonna Lose You." The lyrics are included if you'd like to sing along.

"Like I'm Gonna Lose You"

Written by Meghan Trainor, Justin Weaver, Caitlyn Smith. Performed by Meghan Trainor, featuring John Legend.

I found myself dreaming in silver and gold
Like a scene from a movie that every broken heart knows
We were walking on moonlight and you pulled me close
Split second and you disappeared and then I was all alone

I woke up in tears
With you by my side
A breath of relief
And I realized
No, we're not promised tomorrow

So I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you

[John Legend:] In the blink of an eye
Just a whisper of smoke
You could lose everything
The truth is you never know

So I'll kiss you longer baby
Any chance that I get
I'll make the most of the minutes and love with no regrets

Let's take our time
To say what we want
Use what we got
Before it's all gone
'Cause no, we're not promised tomorrow

[Both:] So I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you

Hey
Whoa

I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
