Note: Chords at this verse may sound funny because Chris' vocals change
      at some point. Don't know what I mean? Check out the 3rd line.
      But it should be okay because it is a running chords for verse.
      For electric guitar, Jonny just do the same thing but he add some
      spies in it.

Verse 3:

Amin
She'll be my mirror,

Emaj
Reflect what I am,

Bsus
A loser and a winner,

Amin
The King of Siam,

Emaj
And my Siamese twin,

Bsus
She knows what I'm thinking,

This is writing credits are wrongly attributed to the Coldplay boys. This song is actually copyright ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN. They recorded it in 1987.

Yeah this isn't originally a Coldplay song (although they have covered it). It's by Echo and the Bunnymen. This should be credited to them, not coldplay.
