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, munderwo@acs.ucalgary.ca.

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
C     - x5777x
F     - x3555x
G     - 320001
Dmaj7 - xx7999
Cmaj7 - xx5777

These chords, especially the C and D, sound more like the CD when
voiced like this. As for the Amaj7 and Gmaj7, it's close, but I'm
pretty sure these aren't the exact chords or voicing used.

Intro: (Repeat 4x)

Am                 C F
When you come back again
          Am                      C   F
Would you bring me something from the fridge?
        Am                  C  F
Heard a rumour that the end is near
      Am               C   F
but I just got comfortable here.

C
Sigh.
Dmaj7    C
Let's be blunt.
      Dmaj7      C
I'm a little distracted.
Dmaj7       C
What do you want?

Am            C
Headaches and bad faith
    Am            C
are all that I've got.
        Am            C
First I misplaced the ending
       F        Am
then I lost the plot.

Am                 C     F
Out among the free-range sheep
          Am                C     F
While the big birds sharped their claws.
      Am                     C   F
For a time we stuck with the shepherd
        Am               C  F
but you wouldn't play Santa Claus.

C
Sigh.
Dmaj7    C
Let's be blunt.
Dmaj7             C
We're a little distracted.
Dmaj7       C
What do you want?

Am            C
Once we could follow,
Am        C
now we cannot.
          Am          C
You would not fit our image,
      F        Am
so we lost the plot.

Am            C
Once we could hear you,
        Am         C
now our senses are shot.
      Am            C
We've forgotten our first love
        F        Am
We have lost the plot.
F        Am
Lost the plot.

Interlude(?)
(Basically just repeatedly: Dmaj7 C Cmaj7 F)

(This next part may not be quite right, I just did it quickly)

C                      Am
When I saw you for the first time
                        C
You were hanging with a thief
                         Am
And I knew my hands were dirty,

and I dropped my gaze.
C                   Am
Then you said I was forgiven

                         C
and you welcomed me with laughter
                 Am
I was happy ever after

I was counting the days
                     C F
when you'd come back again.

We'll be waiting for you
Am              C F
When you comin' again?

We'll be ready for you
Am               C  F
Maybe we'll wake up when...

Maybe we'll wake up when
Am            C F
you come back again.

C
Lies.
Dmaj7    C
Let's be blunt.
        Dmaj7     C
We're a little unfaithful.
Dmaj7       C
What do you want?

Am            C
Are you still listening?
             Am        C
'Cause we're obviously not.
      Am            C
We've forgotten our first love.
        F        Am
We have lost the plot.

    Am                C
And why are you still calling?
    Am             C
You forgave, we forgot.
           Am         C
We're such experts at stalling
           F        Am
that we've lost the plot
F        Am      F        Am      F        Am
lost the plot... lost the plot... lost the plot.

Am                 C F
When you come back again
          Am                      C   F
Would you bring me something from the fridge?
        Am                  C  F
Heard a rumour that the end is near
      Am         C         F
but I just got comfortable here.
