You've Tabbed this song 1/2 a step down...Green day played it in standard..Just move everything back a fret and its in standard...Good tab otherwise.

A thought burst in my head
And I need to tell you
It's news that I for thought
Was it just a dream
That happened long ago?
I think I just forgot
Well it hasn't been the first time
And it sure does drive me mad

There's a boy who fogs his world and now he's getting lazy
there's no motivation and frustration makes him crazy
He makes a plan to take a stand but always ends up sitting
Someone help him up or he's gonna end up quitting

I shuffle though my mind
To see if I can find
The words I left behind
Was it just a dream
That happened long ago?
Oh well...
Nevermind.
