but it gives the label Julian is/was 
signed to at the bottom,and its the closest

Alright, so this song is short (1:24) and sweet. 
There are lyrics, but I am lazy, nobody is going to
look at this tab, and the lyrics are not online. 
So you, nonexistent reader, don't get lyrics. 

There are 4 different "riffs" in the song, the first three 
which are played on the piano, and the last which is played
on the guitar. There is a guitar playing broken chords 
behind the riffs, and I put the chord names on top of 
the riffs. 

The riffs are played like this; riff 1 
is played with riff 2 throughout most of the song,
but at the end of the first verse (type thing),
it switches and after riff 1, riff 3 is played. 
Then riffs 1 and 2 continue doing their thing, 
until the very end, where riff 4 is played once. 

I hope that explanation wasn't too confusing. 
It really is a simple song. Oh and there is 
another instrument (besides guitar and piano),
a glockenspiel I think, which plays in the 
background. But its kind of high, and I don't 
know if it can be played on the guitar, 
so I left it out. The song sounds nice 
this way anyhow. So enjoy.
