That's me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion, losing my religion

from Jay Z – Heaven Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This hook is taken from the chorus in R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion,” one of the most recognized songs of the ‘90s.

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

Earlier he used the hook from Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” so I guess he digs ‘90s alternative.

According to Michael Stipe, the lead singer of R.E.M., “Losing My Religion” is a saying from the American South that means ‘being at the end of one’s rope.’
