When It’s Time
Written by Green Day

I tabbed this from the version of the song from the American Idiot musical, not what
Day usually plays live (that version's just chords). Not everything is perfect but I got it
sound really close to the recording. Please rate and comment with improvements.

Intro: (play twice, pause in between)

A|----------------------------------------------3-----3--------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
   Words get trapped in my mind, sorry if I don’t take the time to
feel the way I do.                         		     ‘Cause the

   first day you came into my life, time ticks around you

D|-5-----5--------4-----4--------2-----2--------2-----2--------------|
A|----------------------------------------------3-----3--------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
	But then I need your voice as the key to unlock all the love
that’s trapped in me.				            So tell me

   When it’s time, to say,      I love you.

C             G
All I want is you to understand, that

D                                    G
when I take your hand, it's 'cause I want to.

C                    G
     We are all born in a world of doubt

               D                D
But there's no doubt, I figured out

e|------------------------|
B|--1-----0---------------|
G|--0-----0------2--------|
D|--2-----2------2--------|
A|--3-----3------3--------|
E|------------------------|
    I    love   you.

(This is played very *faint* (therefore might not be perfectly accurate) after “I love
and before the 2nd verse)

	And I feel lonely for all the losers that will never take the
time to say						        What’s

(here it switches to chords just for this line)

G				    D
really on their mind, instead, they just hide

D|-5-----5--------4-----4--------2-----2--------2-----2--------------|
A|----------------------------------------------3-----3--------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
	Yet they’ll never have someone like you to guide them and help along the way.
  Or tell them

G         D             (play intro)
When it's time to say I love you.

           G         D       D
So tell me when it's time to say I love you.

Outro: (played right after “I love you")
e|-----------------------------------------3-----------3-------------|
B|-------3--------3--------3---------------3-----------1-------------|
G|-----0---0----0---0----0---0-------------0-----------0-------------|
D|-----------------------------------------0-----------0-------------|
A|---3--------2--------1-------------------2-----------2-------------|
E|-----------------------------------------3-----------3-------------|
				         Oooooooooh, oooooooh
(not completely sure about that last chord)

Enjoy & play on :)

It's not all the same as When September Ends. REALLY appreciate your effort in tabbing this man, cause I was really looking for this version. Thanks buddy! 5 stars!

this songs is not by green day.
it is a cover performed by 'cast of the american idiot'
green day has a completely different version and that song is far better than this one.
