Story behind the song
Townshend has stated "The song is simply about losing one's ego as a devotee of Meher Baba. I constantly try to lose myself and find him. I'm not very successful, I'm afraid, but this song expresses how much of a bargain it would be to lose everything in order to be at one with God." - Wikipedia
Lyrics
I'd gladly lose me to find you I'd gladly give up all I had To find you I'd suffer anything and be glad I'd pay any price just to get you I'd work all my life and I will To win you I'd stand naked, stoned and stabbed I call that a bargain The best I ever had The best I ever had I'd gladly lose me to find you Gladly give up all I got To catch you I'm gonna run and never stop I'd pay any price just to win you Surrender my good life for bad To find you I'm gonna drown an unsung man I call that a bargain The best I ever had The best I ever had I sit looking 'round I look at my face in the the mirror I know I'm worth nothing without you In life one and one don't make two One and one make one And I'm looking for that free ride to me I'm looking for you I'd gladly lose me to find you Gladly give up all I got To catch you I'm gonna run and never stop I'd pay any price just to win you Surrender my good life for bad To find you I'm gonna drown an unsung man I call that a bargain The best I ever had The best I ever had
