VerseOE♭h, I was 17 when I heard the countdown start. It started C♯ E♭ sF♯lowlA♭y and I thought it was my heart. But then I realised that tF♯his tA♭ime it was for real. There was no place to hide, I had tC♯o goE♭ out and feel that there was time to kill. And so i wC♯alkeE♭d my way round town. i tried to love the World. Oh, aF♯nd tA♭he world just got me down. And so, I looked for you iF♯n evA♭ery street of every town. I wanna see your face, I wC♯annaE♭, I wanna see you now. I wanna see you now. Oh aC♯nd sE♭o it went, so it went for several years. I couldn't stand iF♯t, nA♭o, it must be getting near. No, no, you don't understand. HF♯ow mA♭any people have seen you in the arms of some other mC♯an. E♭I've got to meet you, and find you, and take your hC♯and.E♭ Oh my God, my god, you've got to understand that I wF♯as 1A♭7 - I didn't, didn't know a thing at all. I've got no rF♯easoA♭n, I've got no reason at all, oh no. C♯ E♭
ChorusOC♯mh, the time of my lA♭ife, oh, I think you came too soon (yeah, it came E♭too soon tC♯mhen). Oh, and it cA♭ould be tonight, if I ever leave this rE♭oom (C♯mif I ever leave this room now). Wasting all my time on all those sA♭tupid things that only get me down. Oh, and the sky iE♭s crying C♯m oA♭ut tonight for me to leave this town (telling meE♭ to leave this town...goodbye...okay...).
VerseYeah, you can leave me, you can, you can go some other place. You can forget it, yeah, you know that it's okay. Because I own this town, yeah I brought it, I brought it down on it's knees. Can you hear it crying? Can you hear it begging me "please?" I know it's coming, so soon now, oh it's on it's way. Oh no, oh no I can hear them say - they say they can't survive. They say it's all a lie and now, it's coming down, oh baby now please...
VerseIt's okay, you don't have to care, really, oh, really I swear. No, no, you owe me nothing, you owe nothing to me. Oh, and if I messed it up baby, that's all up to me, yeah. And if you go then I won't follow, no...no...So many times I've been thinking maybe I should. No, I'm gonna stay, I'm gonna make my way. I'm gonna get on through babe. I'm gonna make it someday.
