Continue to the next part of the song and follow these same tabs.  Again that is not the 
pattern, but I do show you where to switch to the next chord. Do it again with, but 
these lyrics.

Part 2 Of the songs lyrics:

Sleep with all the sheets off, bearing your mattress, bearing your soul.
And you're dying to look smooth with your tattoos,
but you're searching just like everyone
could there be anyone.
And the friends you have are the best
impressing most of us as permanent
and I'd like to see you undone.

Youth's the most unfaithful mistress.
Still we forge ahead to miss her.
Rushing our moment to shine.
Making up a history,
It's nothing from the life you lead,
but man I hope they buy all your lines.


We're not, twenty-one, but the sooner we are, the sooner the fun will begin, so get out 
fake eyelashes, & fake i.d's, & real disasters ensue,

B|------------------|   Strum Each Chord Twice in this pattern (down, down)

it's cool to take these chances. it's cool to fake romances.

This is probally the best version on here,.. i don't know why it only has four stars,.. the only part i would change would be where they do the two strums then rest.
