Coldplay - Speed of Sound - Acoustic (Live 2012)

On their 2012 tour, Coldplay have done an acoustic version of "Speed of sound"
with Will on Piano, Chris on Acoustic, and Jonny and Guy on their normal guitar and bass.
This is in a bit of a different key than usual and sounds a lot more vibrant than the original
which I think was the aim. When doing the "Dm," it may pay to block the top string.

G                     Dm
how long before I get in
Dm                           C
before it starts, before I begin
G                     Dm
how long before you decide
Dm                           C
before I know what it feels like
G                    Dm
where to, where do I go
Dm                                 C
if you never tried then you'll never know
G                        Dm
how long do I have to climb
Dm                                 C
up on this side of this mountain of mine

G                        Dm
look up, I look up at night
Dm                                     C
planets are moving at the speed of light
G                      Dm
climb up, up in the trees
Dm                                           C
every chance that you get, is a chance you seize
G                 Dm
how long am I gonna stand
Dm                             C
with my head stuck under the sand
G                      Dm
I'll start before I can stop
Dm                             C
before I see things the right way up

F              G               Am
all that noise, all that sound
F           G                Am
all those places that i got found
F                           Am
and birds go flying at the speed of sound
Em                  F
to show you how it all began
F                           Am
birds come flying from the underground
Em                         F
if you could see it then you'd understand

G                         Dm
ideas that you'll never find
Dm                               C
all the inventors could never design
G                           Dm
the buildings that you put up
Dm                            C
Japan and China were all lit up
G                          Dm
the sign that I couldn't read
Dm                           C
or the light that I couldn't see
G                            Dm
somethings you have to believe
Dm                                C
but others are puzzles, puzzling me


F              G               A
all that noise, all that sound
F           G                Am
all those places that i got found
F                           Am
and birds go flying at the speed of sound
Em                  F
to show you how it all began
F                           Am
birds come flying from the underground
Em                         F
if you could see it then you'd understand
C


F            G                   Am                    D
all those signs I knew what they meant something you can't invent
F        G                 Am          D
some get made and some get sent, ooo-oooh


F              G               Am
all that noise, all that sound
F           G                Am
all those places that i got found
F                           Am
and birds go flying at the speed of sound
Em                  F
to show you how it all began
F                           Am
birds come flying from the underground
Em                         F
if you could see it then you'd understand
Em                         F
oh if you could see it then you'd understand
