nice tab, but it doesn't really sound much like the song it sounds a little messy in the verse....but it is a great tab that you put on here...also it looks like you forgot the chorus after the 1st verse and then the 2nd verse (which is the 1st verse)........but that's just my opinion....it's still a great tab....
