This is my attempt of finding the chords that belong to Birdy’s song Without a 
word. This will not sound 100% like the original one, and thats not what I 
intented to do either, so its a little of my own version, but it should work. 

Intro
G Bm
G Bm
G Bm
G Bm

Verse: 
(All of the chords are played the same, except for C which is half a time longer, 
and D which is half a time shorter. So if the normal chord was four, C would be 6 
and D would be 2)

G			Bm
And you can tell the world
C			D 	
That you're leaving
G			Bm
And you can pack your bags
C			D
And spread your wings
G			Bm
And you can tell them all
C		D
That it's over
G				Bm
But while you wave goodbye
C		C9 (I play this without the finger on the third string)
I'll be getting closer

Chorus:
In the chorus, I play the C9 like described above. It also works with a normal C

G				   C9 
Stand there and look into my eyes
G				   C9
And tell me that all we had were lies
G			      C9
Show me that you don't care
G			     C9
And I'll stay here if you prefer
C9			       G 
Yes I'll leave you without a word
C9
Without a word

The chords are the same as written before in the next verse and chorus :)

And you can tell the world
That you're tired
But your excuses, they won't work
'Cause I'll know that you're lying
Every time that I see your face
I notice all the suffering
Just turn to my embrace
I won't let you come to nothing

Stand there and look into my eyes
And tell me that all we had were lies
Show me that you don't care
And I'll stay here if you prefer
Yes I'll leave you without a word

C		    G Bm
Without a word
	     G	Bm
Without a word
	    G	C
Without a word
	   G
Without a word
	  C
Without a word
        G	C G
Without a word
