[Intro]

Dm Bb F C 
Dm Bb F C 


[Verse 1]

Dm             Bb                     F
   Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
                    C
You don't know how lovely you are
Dm           Bb                   F
  I had to find you, tell you I need you
               C
Tell you I'll set you apart
Dm                Bb                     F
  Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
            C
Oh lets go back to the start
Dm             Bb                 F
  Running in circles, coming in tails
             C
Heads only science apart


[Chorus 1]

Bb                        F
  Nobody said it was easy
              C
It's such a shame for us to part
Bb                        F
  Nobody said it was easy
             C
No-one ever said it would be this hard
                          F
Oh take me back to the start


[Verse 2]

Dm             Bb                     F
I was just guessing at numbers and figures
                    C
Pulling the puzzles apart
Dm             Bb                     F
Questions of science, science in progress
                    C
They must speak as loud as my heart
Dm             Bb                     F
Tell me you love me, come back and hold me
                    C
I wanna rush to the start
Dm             Bb                     F
Running in circles, chasing tails
                    C
Comin' in back as we are


[Chorus 2]

Bb                        F
  Nobody said it was easy
              C
It's such a shame for us to part
Bb                        F
  Nobody said it was easy
             C
No-one ever said it would be this hard
                         F
I'm going back to the start

Ok, I have a MAJOR problem with all these tabs for this great song: THERE ALL WRONG!!!!. They use a very odd tuning for this song. The tuning that Coldplay actually uses is E-A-D (as normal) then (and this is where it can get tricky) drop the G to an E, and drop the B to an A. The high E stays the same. Also (and this is VERY IMPORTANT) there is a capo on the first fret. This is all 100% correct and if you monkeys don't believe me look at the Sept. 2003 issue of Guitar One Magazine. TRUST ME, IT'S ALL RIGHT!

this is the easiest way to play the song, not bad... but try 133010 instead of a normal C. (Use your thumb on the top string)

cheers
