[Intro](Picked Bass line and accented drum echoed)
(F) (G) (Am)
(F) (G) (Am)
(F) (G) (Am)
(F) (G) 

[Verse 1]
         F               D          G
I fought my feelings and got in the way,
         F                  D         G
Could've been easier like a decade of days.
            F               D            G
Projection, young marriage, lighting the stage,
         F         D    F             G   F G Am F        
I wanted feelings, that got in my own way.  Oh!


[Verse 2]
     G          F               D          G
Then wrote that letter that had nothing to say,
         F             D          G
Staccato vision like a kingdom of days.
            F              D       G
All lonely, or not lonely, century away,
          F        D     F             G   F G  Am  F G
But still a vision as if help's on its way.  Oh!


[Chorus 1]
Am                F               G
Someone, who will lead you to someone,
                         Am        
Who will lead you to someone.
                  C           
Who will lead you to the one, 
F          C      G         Am F G Am F
At the end of the century.  


[Verse 3](Picked Bass line over)
    G      Am        F      G
The air is clearer a decade away, Oh!
           F                D             G
Singing to a mountain, that was empty all along.
            F               D        G
All lonely, young marriage, lighting the way,  Oh!
           F        D    F              G     D G
She wanted feelings that got in her own way.  Oh!

[Chorus 2](Accelerating & ascending vocals)
F                                 G
Someone, who will lead you to someone,
         C               Am      
Who will lead you to someone.
                     F         
Who will lead you to the one,
                           
At the end of the century. 


[Chorus 3](Tension and speed increasing)
F                                 G
Someone, who will lead you to someone,
         C               Am        
Who will lead you to someone.
                     F         
Who will lead you to the one,
          
At the end of the century. 


[Chorus 4](Double-tracked vocals)
F                                 G
Someone, who will lead you to someone,
         C               Am        
Who will lead you to someone.
                     F           
Who will lead you to the one, 

At the end of the century.[Stop]

[Epilogue] by Jarvis Cocker 
(Slow, softly spoken words over Keyboards, Bass guitar, gently picked Lead and Drums)
F      Am  G        F
A century, how long is that?
C              Am          F         D
Three billion, one hundred and fifty five million,
G            F            Am             F
Nine hundred and seventy three thousand, six hundred seconds.
C             D           G
Eight hundred and seventy six million hours,
F
Or thirty six thousand, five hundred days.
C          D             G                            F
Almost as long as one of those endless dark nights of the soul,
F     Em          F     C
Those nights that never end. (A century)
Am       F              Em            Am
When you believe you'll never see the sun rise again, 
C      F             Em           Am 
When a single second feels like a century.  (A century)


[Coda & Refrain](Keyboards & softly strummed Rhythm & Lead, with Drums over) 
C F Em Am
A century,
F Em D C
A century.
F Em Am F
A century,
G D Am F
A century.
Em Am F Em
A century,
D C F Em
A century.
D C F Em
A century,
Am F C (-)
A century.
N.C.
A century.[Stop]
