Punches Chord Frank Turner

Capo 2 with [Am] [Em] [Dm] [G] [F] [C]


VERSE
Well, fuck last year, I’m glad it’s done
And here’s three weak cheers, the next will be a better one
Measuring my life in unanswered messages
Stressing all the little stuff, the thing that’s pathetic is:
I haven’t slept sober in a long, long time
Because I start having arguments as soon as I close my eyes
Vicious fights, bitter and confusеd
And the dumbest part is, sometimеs I even lose
The will to start again
And every day feels like an end

CHORUS
But hey, every once in a few months when
All the punches land
That day, I’m a tiger, a prize fighter
At least worth a damn

VERSE
Damnit, goddamn, I went and fucked it up
Every single day like a clock that’s stuck
It’s another fine morning rolling down in the muck
I’ve been trying to look up and trying to find me some luck
Every sunrise the cycle starts again
I’ve been walking into glass doors since 7am
Trying to break the cycle, trying to make some new friends;
I guess it would be easier than making amends
And then I feel the buzz, the glow
Of one sweet day a few months ago

CHORUS
When hey, every once in a few months when
All the punches land
That day, I’m a tiger, a prize fighter
At least worth a damn

Hey, every once in a few months when
All the punches land
That day, I’m a tiger, a prize fighter
At least worth a damn

BRIDGE
And I don’t want to be a beggar always asking for slack;
Gonna take the things they threw at me and throw them right back
I’m tired of only ever trying to do what I can
The secret is to try and do the things that you can’t

VERSE
I can’t promise that I’m going to be fine
But I’ll throw my best punch every single time
Even though I’m skinny, don’t know how to fight
I’ve got the makings of a champion every once in a while
Twenty four seven, three sixty five
I’m holding up my head to keep the dream alive
Of one perfect day when the stars align
I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine
I got the whole world in my sights

CHORUS
But hey, every once in a few months when
All the punches land
That day, I’m a tiger, a prize fighter
At least worth a damn

But hey, every once in a few months when
All the punches land
That day, I’m a tiger, a prize fighter
At least worth a —- damn

CHORUS
Damn the haters, damn the doubters
Today’s my special day
You can’t stop me, can’t touch me
Can’t take it away

CHORUS
But hey, every once in a few months when
All the punches land
That day, I’m a tiger, a prize fighter
At least worth a damn
