This is the version Billie Joe sings at the end of the American Idiot Broadway Cast Album.


When It's Time
Billie Joe Armstrong



G                       D/F#     
Words get trapped in my mind,

              Em                              C
Sorry I don't take the time to feel the way I do.

          G                          D 
Cause the first day you came into my life,

               G              D
The time ticks around you



G                    D/F#
But then I need your voice

              Em                                    C       
As the key to unlock all the love that's trapped in me


           G         D             G            G7   
So tell me when it's time to say I love you.



C             G                     
All I want is you to understand, that

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

C               G                
We are all born in a world of doubt

               D
But there's no doubt, I figured out


C    G/B    G/A
I    love   you.

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

C               G                
We are all born in a world of doubt

               D
But there's no doubt, I figured out


C    G/B    G/A
I    love   you.



G             D/F#
I feel lonely for

               Em                               C 
All the losers that will never take the time to say,

         G                      D/F#      D
What was really on their mind instead
      
               G            G/D    D
They just hide away
    


G                 D/F#                                             
Yet they'll never have 

                 Em                               C
someone like you to guide them and help along the way.

             G         D             G
Or tell them when it's time to say I love you.


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