Pulp – Countdown lyrics

[single intro: 'keep very still, for the strangest things are about to happen. ']

Oh I was seventeen when I heard the countdown start, it started slowly
And I thought it was my heart but then I realised
That this time it was for real there was no place to hide
I had to go out and feel, but there was time to kill
And so I, I walked my way around town I tried to love the world
Oh but the world just got me down and so I looked for you
In every street of every town I wanted to see your face
I wanna I wanna see you now
I wanna see you now
Oh and so it went
Oh so it went for several years I couldn't stand it
No oh it must be getting near now that you just don't know
Oh no you, you just don't understand how many people have seen you
In the arms of, of of some other man
I've got to meet you and find you and take you by the hand oh my God my god
You've got to understand that I was seventeen
I didn't I didn't know a thing at all
I've got no reason I've got no reason at all
Oh no the time of my life oh I think you came too soon
Yeah you came too soon then
Oh and it could it could be tonight if I ever leave this room
(I never leave this room no)
Oh I wasted all my time on all those stupid things that only get me down
Get down, oh
Oh and the sky is crying out tonight for me to leave this town
So I'm gonna leave this town
Goodbye O. K.
Yeah you can leave me
Oh you, you can go some other place
You can't forget it
Yeah you know, you know that's O. K.
Cause, cause I own this town
Yeah, yeah I brought it to it's knees
Can you hear it crying? Can you?
Can you hear it begging to me 'please? '
I know it's coming so soon now oh, oh it's on it's way
Oh no oh no oh I can hear them say, they say I can't survive
They say I, I'll never leave the ground
They say it's all a lie and now and now it's coming down
Oh baby now
Time of my life oh I think you came too soon
Yeah you came too soon now
Oh and it could oh it could be tonight if I ever leave this room
(I never leave this room now)
Oh oh oh
I wasted all my time on all those stupid things that only get me down
Get down, oh
Oh and the sky is crying out tonight for me to leave this town
So I'm gonna go gonna be there
I'm gonna go
Bub-bye it's O. K.
You don't have to care
Really oh, oh really, I swear
No, no you owe me nothing
You owe nothing to me
And if I messed it up baby
Then, that's all up to me
And if you go then, then I won't follow, no, no
Cause so many times I've been, I've been thinking maybe, oh maybe I should
No, I, I'm gonna stay
I, I'm gonna make my way
Oh, I'm gonna get on through babe
I'm gonna make it all some day
Oh, time of my life no I think you came too soon
You came too soon then
Oh and it could it could be tonight if I ever leave this room
(I never, I never leave this room, no)
Oh oh oh I wasted all my time on all those stupid things that only get me down
Get down, oh
And the sky is crying out tonight for me to leave this town
So I'll leave this town the sky is crying out tonight for me to leave this town
Yeah I'm gonna leave this town
Time is crying out tonight for me to leave this town
So I'm gonna go yeah I'm gonna go
Yeah bub-bye
I'm gonna leave this town
You're not gonna have me around
Oh the sky and stars and God will never ever laugh
Me and stars and moon are falling down.
[single outro: 'you've just heard one of the most remarkable applications in modern
Electronics. ']
