And youth's the most  unfaithful mistress, still we forge

      We're    not    twenty-one 		   but the
   sooner  we  are  the  sooner the fun will be-
    gin, so get out  your fake  eyelashes and
    fake       IDs   and  real    disasters en-
    sue. It's cool    to  take these chances
         It's cool    to  fake  ro – mances
	    And  grow    up   fast and grow up
   fast  and  grow    up   fast and grow up fast... (0xxxxx) 

Here's the background stuff, real easy, you can figure out the timing just by listening to it.

I don't ****in' know. I wrote the tab about two years ago, at least, maybe three? If I remember right, it's the same chords as the verse, but it looks like the "bridge" part in this tab is just trying to tell you when to strum in relation to the lyrics. Hell, I haven't listened to Dashboard for quite some time.
