Lost The Plot
Song: Lost the Plot, from the CD Take me to your Leader Artists: Newsboys, lyrics by Steve Taylor and Peter Furler. Transcribed by James Underwood, firstname.lastname@example.org. This is probably my favourite song on the entire TMTYL album; It's got a lot of emotion and the lyrics are really powerful. It's a pretty easy song to play and it was the first song I ever really totally figured out. Here it is. Chords used: Em - 022000 D - x5777x C - x3555x G - 320001 A7M - xx7999 G7M - xx5777 These chords, especially the C and D, sound more like the CD when voiced like this. As for the A7M and G7M , it's close, but I'm pretty sure these aren't the exact chords or voicing used. Intro: (Repeat 4x) E|-----0-------0---| B|-------0-------0-| G|-----------2-----| D|---2-------------| A|---------0-------| E|-0---------------| Em D C When you come back again Em D C Would you bring me something from the fridge? Em D C Heard a rumour that the end is near Em D C but I just got comfortable here. D Sigh. A7M D Let's be blunt. A7M D I'm a little distracted. A7M D What do you want? Em G Headaches and bad faith Em G are all that I've got. Em G First I misplaced the ending C Em then I lost the plot. Em D C Out among the free-range sheep Em D C While the big birds sharped their claws. Em D C For a time we stuck with the shepherd Em D C but you wouldn't play Santa Claus. D Sigh. A7M D Let's be blunt. A7M D We're a little distracted. A7M D What do you want? Em G Once we could follow, Em G now we cannot. Em G You would not fit our image, C Em so we lost the plot. Em G Once we could hear you, Em G now our senses are shot. Em G We've forgotten our first love C Em We have lost the plot. C Em Lost the plot. Interlude(?) (Basically just repeatedly: A7M D G7M C) (This next part may not be quite right, I just did it quickly) G Em When I saw you for the first time G You were hanging with a thief Em And I knew my hands were dirty, and I dropped my gaze. G Em Then you said I was forgiven G and you welcomed me with laughter Em I was happy ever after I was counting the days D C when you'd come back again. We'll be waiting for you Em D C When you comin' again? We'll be ready for you Em D C Maybe we'll wake up when... Maybe we'll wake up when Em D C you come back again. D Lies. A7M D Let's be blunt. A7M D We're a little unfaithful. A7M D What do you want? Em G Are you still listening? Em G 'Cause we're obviously not. Em G We've forgotten our first love. C Em We have lost the plot. Em G And why are you still calling? Em G You forgave, we forgot. Em G We're such experts at stalling C Em that we've lost the plot C Em C Em C Em lost the plot... lost the plot... lost the plot. Em D C When you come back again Em D C Would you bring me something from the fridge? Em D C Heard a rumour that the end is near Em D C but I just got comfortable here.
