song: the scientist
band: coldplay
tabbed by:streetspirit87
Capo on 5th fret  (this may not actually be what Chris is doing
		   but it at least sounds very close to me,
		   and probably means fewer barre chords!)

Chords: (relative to capo)
Am    (x02210)
F     (13321x)  (could play 133211 sometimes)
C     (x32010)
Cadd9 (x30010) 
G     (320033)

Am F C C Cadd9 (x4)

F C C Cadd9
F C Cadd9 G C


Verse 1:
Am           F
 Come up to meet you
 Tell you I'm sorry
 You don't know how lovely you are
(chords similarly for the rest of the verse) 
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart
So tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
And oh let's go back to the start
Running in circles
Chasing our tails
Heads on a silence apart

 Nobody said it was easy
C                                 Cadd9
 Oh it's such a shame for us to part
 Nobody said it was easy
C            Cadd9                 G 
 No one ever said it would be so hard
(pause chords)    G   C
I'm going back to the start

Am  F  C  C  Cadd9

Verse 2 (same as Verse 1):
I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science
Science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart
So tell me you love me
Oh come back and haunt me
Oh when I rush to the start
Running in circles
Chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Chorus (see above)

F  C  C  Cadd9

Am  F  C  Cadd9

Am  F  C  Cadd9 (4th time end on C)
 Oh ooooh (x4)
