A Firm Kick   John Frusciante

[A] A firm kick in [E]the pants, this [Bm]last chance, to [D]get things [E]right,

[A] This was one t[E]ime I, closed [Bm]an eye, looked[D] away from [E]you,

[F#m]    Look out for yourself tonight,[D] Sometimes i have to get things right,
[A]I never [E]meant what I [Bm]said to [F#m]you, To give[A] up all the [E]things that you [Bm]love to [F#m]do,
[A]I'd never g[E]uessed that you'd [Bm]done me w[F#m]rong, I'll [A]never ac[E]cept that d[Bm]ance and s[F#m]ong,
[A] A little time to [E]adjust, would [Bm]be just, [D]what we n[E]eed,
[A] I've meant to tell you what [E2]I think, that [Bm]you think, when [D]I cross your m[E]ind,
[F#m]    Forgone, stressed at the light,[D]  Whats wrong with being uptight,
[A]I never [E]say what I [Bm]intend t[F#m]o,  [A]But does it [E]mean that [Bm]much to y[F#m]ou,
[A]I'd a close [E]call with a [Bm]glitch in t[F#m]ime, Are[A] you really [E]that happy [Bm]to be m[F#m]ine,
[E]No I'm not disg[D]uising, [E]all that figh[D]ting, and [E]dreams not coming [D]true,

[F#m]     [C#]    [E]   [B]   [F#m]     [C#]    [E]   [B]          
I[F#m] will play [C#]some [E]light from the [B]sun, the [F#m]world b[C#]y my s[E]ide, [B]

I[F#m] will see [C#]dawn [E]as a for[B]lorn m[F#m]aiden [C#]in the s[E]ky,     [B]
And [F#m]I will play[C#] a s[E]ong of thu[B]nder [F#m]you may [C#]recogni[E]se,  [B]
You [F#m]make a [C#]never, [E]thats for[B]ever,
[F#m]Knowing what [C#]you d[D]eny,     [E]
[A] When I revisit [E]the past,  it's [Bm]a blast, i've just [D]gotta move [E]on,
[A] I've just let down [E]someone, i rel[Bm]ied on, and [D]I don't see [E]why,
[F#m] How'd we pretty up that speech,[D] M city talkin through me,
[A]I've never [E]done what I set [Bm]out to [F#m]do, [A]don't come to [E]me 'cuz i'll [Bm]run from [F#m]you,
[A]Left out of [E]life would I [Bm]really [F#m]care,
[A]Not a whole [E]lot there's nothing [Bm]for me [F#m]there,
[E]I'll never [D]forget, the [E]limits that we [D]set, [E]back when it [D]was our moon,

And, I [E]never made a pre[D]tense, of [E]living with good [D]sense,

It's [E]really not my [D]strong s[F#m]uit
  [A]     [E]     [Bm]     [D]     [F#m]      [E2]     [C#]     [B]
