On sheet music, I don't understand how there are a treble clef, another treble clef and then a bass clef in each line. Which one do you play? It is like three lines in one line. Another thing is that the bottom treble clef and bass clef have a brace, why not the top one.

The top is the melody line (usualy the vocal part). The middle and bottom are for the right (treble) and left (bass) hand parts for piano.
