	 Dm
Oh I was 17
When I heard the countdown start
It started slowly
And I thought it was my heart
	     Gm
But then I realised
This time it was for real
There was no place to hide
I had to
To go out and feel
	      Dm
But there was time to kill
And so I, I walked my way round town
I tried to love the world
Oh, but the world just got me down
	 Gm
And so I looked for you
In every street, of every town
I wanna see your face
I wanna, I wanna see you now
		Dm
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
No, but you just don't know
Oh no you just don't understand
How many people have seen you
In the arms 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 17
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

			Dm
Oh I think you came too soon
(Yeah you came too soon there)
	   C
Oh, and it could
	      Gm
It could be tonight
		     Dm
If I ever leave this room
I never leave this room, no
    C				     Gm
Oh, wasting all my time on all those stupid things
		 Dm
That only get me down
(Get down, oh!)
	    C			Gm
Oh, and the sky is crying out tonight
		     Dm
For me to leave this town
So I'm gonna leave this town
Goodbye
OK

Yeah, you can leave me
Oh, you, you can go some other place
You can forget it
Yeah, you know, you know that's OK
'Cos, 'cos I own this town
Yeah, yeah I brought it to its knees

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

I've been thinking maybe
Oh maybe I should
