(Play PART 1  [2x])
Sleep with all the lights on, you're not so happy. you're not secure.
You're dying to look cute in your blue jeans but you're plastic just like everyone,
you're just like everyone. And that face you paint is pressed impressing most of us
as permament. And I'd like to see you undone.

(Lightly pick part 1 [2x])
Collge nights, draw the crowds, dorms
unload and you're heading out.Here is your moment to shine. Making up a history, it's
nothing of the life you lead, but man will they buy all your lines. 

(Play PART 1  [2x])
Sleep with all the sheets off bearing your mattress bearing your soul. And your trying 
to look smooth with your tatoos but your searching just like everyone, you could be anyone. 
And those friends you have are the best impressing most of us as permanent, but I'd like to 
see you undone.

(Lightly pick part 1 [2x])
Youth's the most unfaithful mistress, still we forge ahead to miss her, rushing our 
moment to shine. Making up, a history, it's nothing of the life you lead, but man
will they buy all your lines.

(Play PART 2 [8x])
We're not 21, but the sooner we are the sooner the fun will begin. so get out 
your fake eyelashes and fake id's, and real disaters ensue. It's cool to take
these chances. It's cool to fake romances, and grow up fast, grow up fast, and 
grow up fast.

Good luck with this one.  I hear the note F (Gb string 11th fret) pretty often,
and of course the everpresent open Eb Bb.

"we're not twenty-one"

Eb    0   0 !  0

Ok, I made this part up cause I can't even hear the recording, except the last
three notes (G Eb G).  Maybe the second guitar is in an alternate tuning...
