Okay guys, this is my very first tab to make. VERY FIRST. Uhh, i think that i'm right
i just based all of this on listening to the song. And this is how i play it. I think this
the best version so far; but im not saying its good, cuz all the ones who made this tab 
BADLY. Hope you enjoy...

Oh, and i made this tab because, only now, Boys Like Girls is getting popular. ERR.
stayed hidden..
