Intro/Verse
Throughout the intro and verse, there are two versions of the same riff, one version is
muted the other isn’t and it sounds slightly different

palm muted version
e-----------------0----------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------0--------------------------------------------------------------|
G-44-444-22-222-1-----4~-----------------------------------------------------------|
D-44-444-22-222-2-----4~-----------------------------------------------------------|
A-22-222-00-000-2-----2~-----------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------0------------------------------------------------------------------|

non-pm version
e--------------000----------------------------------------------------------|
B—-------------000----------------------------------------------------------|
G-4~-4~-22-222-111-4~-------------------------------------------------------|
D-4~-4~-22-222-222-4~-------------------------------------------------------|
A-2~-2~-00-000-222-2~-------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------000----------------------------------------------------------|

for the whole intro, you pm on the first time, but the next three times you play the non-pm
version.

The verse has the same riff played 8 times, you play with the pm on the 1st, 3rd, 5th
7th time and you play the non pm version on the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th time.

Chorus-nice and simple!!

   Interlude

This is quite difficult to figure out. I think there are two guitars here, one plays the 
and the other plays this quietly,but I think this is correct.

Outro:
just play this once:

It’s a tricky little song with palm muting and stuff at different stages and so you need
fiddle around with the riffs to get it right. Have fun playing a great song.

Lyrics
Verse 1:
Every night I dream the same dream
Of getting older all the time
I ask you now, what does this mean?
Are these problems just in my mind?
Things are easy when you're a child
But now these pressures have dropped on my head
The length I've gone are just long miles
Would they be shorter if I were dead

Chorus:
Every time I look in my past
I always wish I was there
I wish my youth would forever last
Why are these times so unfair

Verse 2:
Look at my friends and see what they've done
Ask myself why they had to change
I like them better when they were young
Now all these times are rearranged
I look down and stand there and cry
Nothing ever will be the same
The sun is rising, now I ask why?
The clouds now fall and here comes the rain
