Artist: Coldplay
Album: X & Y
Chords by: Jhay Ehidio
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's the Song of the Year for MTV Europe...Coldplay's Speed of Sound...

ENJOY!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Verse:
    A                 G/B
How long before I get in
                             D
Before it starts, before I begin?
    A                 G/B
How long before you decide
                            D
Before I know what it feels like?
      A              G/B
Where to, where do I go?
                                    D
If you never try, then you'll never know
    A                 G/B
How long do I have to climb
                                   D
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Interlude: (play intro chords)

Verse: (play verse chords)
Look up, I look up at night
Planets are moving at the speed of light
Climb up, up in the trees
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize
How long am I gonna stand
With my head stuck under the sand?
I’ll start before I can stop
Before I see things the right way up

Refrain:
G9         A                   Bm
  All that noise, and all that sound
G          Gdim               Bm      
 All those places that I doth found
    G                       Bm    
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
   D                     G
To show you how it all began
                           Bm
Birds came flying from the underground
             F#m                      G
If you could see it then you'd understand

Interlude: (play intro chords)

Verse: (play verse chords)
Ideas that you'll never find
Or the inventors could never design
The buildings that you put up
Japan and China all lit up
The sign that I couldn't read
Or the light that I couldn't see
Some things you have to believe
But others are puzzles, puzzling me

Refrain:
G9         A                   Bm
  All that noise, and all that sound
G          Gdim               Bm      
 All those places that I doth found
    G                       Bm    
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
   D                     G
To show you how it all began
                           Bm
Birds came flying from the underground
             F#m                      G
If you could see it then you'd understand
             F#m                      G   -D
If you could see it then you'd understand

Bridge:
G          A                       Bm
 All those signs, I knew what they meant 
               
Some things you can't invent
G         A                  Bm
 Some get made, and some get sent
E
Ooh…

Refrain:
    G                       Bm    
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
   D                     G
To show you how it all began
                           Bm
Birds came flying from the underground
             F#m                      G  -A -Bm -C -D
If you could see it then you'd understand

For it is not Gdim, but more like a G-b5: 345433 or 320023

Is it just me, or does Jon Buckland use broken chords in the chorus?
