bar chords in (A) shape.

Intro:
(D) (F) (G) (D#) (C#) x6

(D)
Every now and then I cower and I need to find empowerment 
  (F)
Empowerment is paramount to how I can begin to mount 
   (G)
A  plan that I can implement to make a dent on ignorance 
  (D#)
Instead of drunk belligerence 
        (C#)
and the dissidence of miscreants 
(D)
Especially in this instance with the never ending persistence 
   (F)
to use the words in each sentence as if they were blunt instruments 
   (G)
to beat a hole in the defence of this beauty and her innocence 
      (D#)
which serves to just build resistance
   (C#) 
in spite of all my good intents. 

    (D)
The beat that my heart skipped
    (F) 
The beat that my heart skipped
    (G)                (D#)          (C#)
The beat that my heart skipped

(D)
This is the beat that my heart skipped when we first met 
(F)
Now that I’ve heard it, it leaves me with a kind of regret 
(G)
No disrespect,we just left a lot of people upset 
(D#)                                   (C#)
And what we had wasn’t really what we’d come to expect 


(D)
The beat that my heart skipped when we first met 
(F)
Now that I’ve heard it, it leaves me with a kind of regret 
(G)
No disrespect, we just left a lot of people upset 
(D#)                                    (C#) 
And what we had wasn’t really what we’d come to expect

(D)
Well good god damn and other such phrases 
(F)
I haven’t heard a beat like this in ages 
(G)
To miss such a beat would have been outrageous 
(D#)                                (C#)
But when you heart skips a beat its ruthless and aimless 



(D)
She caught my attention in her fishnets 
(F)
Then she reeled me in expecting nothing more than kissed necks and quick sex 
(G)
But that weren’t the case with this platinum princess 
(D#) 
She’s attracted my interest 
(C#)
So I wanted to impress…. 
(D)
Upon her all the positive things 
(F)
That come form having more than just a one night fling 
(G)
But that’s something that’s easier in theory than in practice 
(D#) 
Since pick up lines are tactics 
(C#)
To get prey to the mattress 
(D)
And this actress, Is practiced, In shunning such theatrics 
(F)
When put upon daily by tactless geriatrics 
(G)
So my genuine advances are met with po-faced scepticism 
(D#)                 (C#)
Throwing complements but she just straight elects to miss them 
(D)
Her lips were put on this earth for dispersing wisdom 
(F)
God forbid I suggest she lets me kiss them 
(G)
But I really want to know what she thinks of me 
(D#)                         (C#)
Because I’m loving every idiosyncrasy 
(D)
But I ain’t one to jump through hoops to make a 1st impression 
(F)
Been there, done that, learnt the worst of lessons 
(G)
We want to be loved for who we appear to be instead of who we are 
(D#)                                        (C#)
So I real selves take a backseat behind the pomp and the façade 
(D)
And that’s as true of the rude boys, downing pints and acting hard 
(F)
As of the kids shunning convention with clinical disregard 
(G)                             (D#)        (C#)
This is the beat that my heart skipped

Yes indeed! This is the bomb! It confirmed my power chord version. Now I just have to learn the words.
