Intro/Verse
This is a brilliant riff, but is really tricky to pull off. No-one had tabbed it quite 
on this site, but I think this version is pretty correct. Play around with it.

Throughout the intro and verse, there are two versions of the same riff, one version is 
muted the other isnt and it sounds slightly different

palm muted version

G-44-444-22-222-1-----4~-----------------------------------------------------------|
D-44-444-22-222-2-----4~-----------------------------------------------------------|

non-pm version

D-4~-4~-22-222-222-4~-------------------------------------------------------|
A-2~-2~-00-000-222-2~-------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------000----------------------------------------------------------|

for the whole intro, you pm on the first time, but the next three times you play the 
version.

The verse has the same riff played 8 times, you play with the pm on the 1st, 3rd, 5th 
7th time and you play the non pm version on the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th time.

Chorus-nice and simple!!

   Interlude
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/green_day/16_tab_ver_4.html ]
This was complete guesswork. I dont know how billie plays this, so this is tabbed by 
I think it sounds pretty close to the album version, so you just need to play with it a bit.

Lyrics
Verse 1:
Every night I dream the same dream
Of getting older all the time
I ask you now, what does this mean?
Are these problems just in my mind?
Things are easy when you're a child
But now these pressures have dropped on my head
The length I've gone are just long miles
Would they be shorter if I were dead

Chorus:
Every time I look in my past
I always wish I was there
I wish my youth would forever last
Why are these times so unfair

Verse 2:
Look at my friends and see what they've done
Ask myself why they had to change
I like them better when they were young
Now all these times are rearranged
I look down and stand there and cry
Nothing ever will be the same
The sun is rising, now I ask why?
The clouds now fall and here comes the rain
