Desperate Measures

Chords and lyrics for Desperate Measures by Marianas Trench

 
Gonna make a heart-throb  
E 
out of  
B 
me
 
Just  
E 
a bit of  
B 
minor 
 
surgery
E 
These desperate times  
B 
call for desperate  
A 
measures
 
I’ll  
B 
give you  
C#m 
something 
 
 
A 
to cry about
 
Show  
B 
some skin,  
A 
and would be, cash  
C#m 
out
How could you let this get to desperate measures now?

For a first effort this,

 
Feels  
E 
kinda last  
B 
ditch
I guess this just
 
Got kinda  
E 
drastic
 
Trust us  
G#m 
you just fell off the bus,  
E 
baby

I can’t let this, I can’t let this go

 
When I got you right where  
C#m 
I want you
I been pushing for this for so long
 
Kiss  
A 
me, just once,  
B 
for 
 
luck
 
These are desperate measures  
C#m 
now
 
A 
I can’t let this, I can’t let this go

Have a piece of American dream

Open up, and swallow, on your knees
 
And  
B 
say "Thank you"
E 
I’d like some desperate measures, please

For a first effort this,

Feels kinda last ditch
A 
I guess this  
E 
just
Got kinda drastic
Trust us, you just fell off the bus, suckers
 
Yeah,  
A 
well, payback is a  
C#m 
mother 
 
fucker
 
I  
B 
can’t let this, I can’t let this go
A 
When I got you right where I want you
 
I been pushing for  
B 
this for so long
 
Kiss me,  
E 
just once, for luck
B 
These are desperate  
A 
measures 
 
now
 
I  
C#m 
can’t let this, I  
B 
can’t let this  
E 
go

Go Forever, forwards, or better

My poor heart will only surrender
Go forever, forwards, or better
My poor heart will only surrender, now

 
I  
C#m 
can’t let this,  
B 
I can’t let this go
 
When  
C#m 
I got you right  
B 
where I want you
 
I been  
E 
pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck
 
These are desperate  
B 
measures 
 
now
 
E 
I can’t let this, I can’t let this go

When I got you right where I want you

B 
I been pushing  
E 
for this for so long
 
Kiss  
A 
me, just once,  
B 
for 
 
luck
A 
These are desperate  
B 
measures 
 
now
 
E 
I can’t let this, I can’t let this go
