# Marianas Trench - Desperate Measures

November 12, 2015

## Lyrics

Gonna make a heartthrob out of me
Just a bit of minor surgery
These desperate times call for desperate measures
I'll give you something to cry about
Show some skin and would be caché
How could you let this get to desperate measures now?

For a first effort this
Feels kinda last-ditch
I guess this just
Got kinda drastic
Trust us you just fell off the bus, baby

I can't let this, I can't let this, I can't let this go
I can't let this, I can't let this go
I can't let this, I can't let this go
When I got you right where I want you

I've been pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck
These are desperate measures now
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 say "Thank you, I'd like some desperate measures, please"
For a first effort this
Feels kinda last-ditch
I guess this just
Got kinda drastic
Trust us, you just fell off the bus, suckers
Yeah, well, payback is a motherfucker
I can't let this, I can't let this go
I can't let this, I can't let this go

When I got you right where I want you
I've been pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck

These are desperate measures now
I can't let this, I can't let this go
Forever, for worse or better
My poor heart will only surrender

Go forever, for worst or better

My poor heart will only surrender, now
I can't let this, I can't let this go
When I got you right where I want you
I've been pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck
These are desperate measures now
I can't let this, I can't let this go
When I got you right where I want you
I've been pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck
These are desperate measures now
I can't let this, I can't let this go
