COLDPLAY




STANDARD TUNING - NO CAPO (Scroll down for capo version)

VERSE 1:
D           Asus4 A       D
Scared of losing all the time
     Asus4   A    D
He wrote it in a letter
   Asus4   A       D     Asus4  A          
He was a friend of mine
D        Asus4      A        D
He heard you could see your future
   Asus4   A        D  
Inside a glass of water
    Asus4   A         D    Asus4  A
The ripples and the rhymes
(A)        G                             A(several strums)
And he asked 'Will I see heaven in mine?'

D - Asus4 - A
D - Asus4 - A 

VERSE 2:
     D      Asus4    A     D
Oh that is just the way it was,
 Asus4   A        D
Nothing could be better,
     Asus4  A    D   Asus4  A
and nothing ever was.
     D        Asus4  A        D   
Oh, they say you can see your future
   Asus4   A        D   
inside a glass of water.
    Asus4   A         D     Asus4  A
The riddles and the rhymes
G                              A
   Will I see heaven in mine?
A (several strums)
Ohhh-ohhh-ohhh-ohhh-I

CHORUS 1:
 D   F#m  Bm  G       D   F#m  Bm  G  
Son,            don't ask,
         D       F#m      Bm   G      D      F#m  Bm  G
Neither how full    nor empty is your glass
 D   F#m  Bm   G      D   F#m  Bm  G  
Cling         to the mast
             D      F#m  Bm    G              Asus4  G               
Spend your whole life    living in your past

Going nowhere fast

VERSE 3:
D       Asus4  A    D  
So he wrote it on a wall
     Asus4 A      D        Asus4 A      D    Asus4  A
The hollow-est of halos is no  halo at all
D    Asus4  A         D
Televisions selling plastic
Asus4 A       D         Asus4   A        D    Asus4  A   
Figurines of leaders saying nothing at all
           G
And we chimed, stars in heaven align
A (several strums)
Ohhh-ohhh-ohhh-ohhh-I

CHORUS 2:
 D   F#m  Bm  G       D   F#m  Bm  G  
Son,            don't ask,
         D       F#m      Bm   G      D      F#m  Bm  G
Neither how full    nor empty is your glass
 D   F#m  Bm   G      D   F#m  Bm  G  
Cling         to the mast
             D      F#m  Bm    G              Asus4  G               
Spend your whole life    living in your past
       A (several strums)
Going nowhere fast

And what are we drinking when we're done?
           G         D
Glasses of water.

End on D.
