lyrics

DROPKICK ME RIGHT IN THE CHEST

verse: A7 G7 F#m7 D7 F#m7 G7
chorus: A7 C#7 F#m (D D7)
bridge: A7 Bm7 C#m7 D7 C#m7 Bm7

you...
tried to dropkick me right in the chest
you did your best to bring the pain
so i thought i should write
but i'll never write or right the wrongs
so i wrote a song or at least made one up

CH.
don't you see that you're crazy?
& i'm not thinking maybe
it's a surefire odds-on bet
do me a favour & just...

forget all the plants in the yard
it's too hard to love them all
that i want is a spaceship
& a trip to the moon back in time
when the surface was clean
no one means to mess it up

CH.
don't you see that you're needed?
& i don't dare repeat it
it's in the letter i never wrote
oh i never wrote

BR. [inst](x4)

[repeat first CH.]

BR.
forget. (just forget) (x3)
just--
