Countdown by Pulp
Written by Jarvis Cocker/Pulp
From the album Countdown and from Seperations
transcribed by Coreii Cunningham
Verse:
Eb C# Eb
Oh, I was 17 when I heard the countdown start. It started
F# G#
slowly and I thought it was my heart. But then I realised that
F# G#
this time it was for real. There was no place to hide, I had
C# Eb
to go out and feel that there was time to kill. And so i
C# Eb
walked my way round town. i tried to love the World. Oh,
F# G#
and the world just got me down. And so, I looked for you
F# G#
in every street of every town. I wanna see your face, I
C# Eb
wanna, I wanna see you now. I wanna see you now. Oh
C# Eb
and so it went, so it went for several years. I couldn't stand
F# G#
it, no, it must be getting near. No, no, you don't understand.
F# G#
How many people have seen you in the arms of some other
C# Eb
man. I've got to meet you, and find you, and take your
C# Eb
hand. Oh my God, my god, you've got to understand that I
F# G#
was 17 - I didn't, didn't know a thing at all. I've got no
F# G# C# Eb
reason, I've got no reason at all, oh no.
Chorus:
C#m
Oh, the time of my
G# Eb
life, oh, I think you came too soon (yeah, it came too soon
C#m G# Eb
then). Oh, and it could be tonight, if I ever leave this room
C#m
(if I ever leave this room now). Wasting all my time on all those
G# Eb C#m
stupid things that only get me down. Oh, and the sky is crying
G# Eb
out tonight for me to leave this town (telling me to leave this

town...goodbye...okay...).
Verse:
Yeah, 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...
(Chorus)
Verse:
It'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.
(Chorus)
Outro Chords: Eb C#m highG#
I'm gonna leave
this town. I'm never gonna hang around. The sky and stars
and God will never ever laugh. Me and moon and stars are
falling down.
