Q. Dear Oracle:
I just have curiosity about this: Is it true that Coldplay have a song named Before I Lose, maybe written in 1998? Thanks for your answer!

The Oracle replies:

I'd never heard of a song called Before I Lose but noticed it was apparently played at The Laurel Tree show in 1998 but as I didn't see it on the written setlist we had on our timeline, I'd say that's untrue. Unless it was a cover?
