TITLE         : Lost
WRITTEN BY    : ?
PERFORMED BY  : COLDPLAY
ALBUM         : Viva La Difference ?-)

INTERPRETED BY: Monsty :)

Hmm ... It's debatable whether the "G" is a "Bm" in the verses.
        - Personally I like the "Bm" better in some places.
          I'm tempted to play it all thru the verses instead of 
          the "G" chord. - KISS
          I do, however, concede to those with a "keener ear", 
	  that it might indeed be the chord of "G" on the record ! 
	  - Try the "Bm" though, I think you'll like it :)

N.B. [...] = alternative chord
        
INTRO :  (Em, C, G[Bm], D ) x 2
-----

VERSE-1 :
-------
Em		 C	 G 	   D	    Em   C G 
Just because I'm losing, ^ doesn't mean I'm lost ^ ^

	D	  Em    C Bm[G]            D                Em    C Bm[G] D
Doesn't mean I'll stop, ^ ^     it doesn't mean that I will cross ^ ^     ^  


VERSE-2 :
-------
Em		 C	  G         D	     Em	  C G 
Just because I'm hurting, ^ doesn't mean I'm hurt ^ ^ 
 
	D	      Em       C    Bm[G]     D		    Em	  C Bm[G]<=
Doesn't mean I didn't get what I de-serve, no better and no worse ^ ^     ^


CHORUS-1 :
--------
           D
I just got lost
		   C     G  D
Every river that I tried to cross
                  C     G   D
Every door I ever tried was locked


CHORUS-Riff :
-----------

	E|--------7------------5--|
	B|------5-----------3-----|
	G|-5-H7-------4-/-5-------|
	D|------------------------|
	A|------------------------|
	E|------------------------|


N.B. - Play CHORUS-Riff over the following line :
        C	 G	   		      D
Oh, and I'm just waiting till the shine wears off




VERSE-3 :
-------
Em             C	 G      D      Em   C G  
You might be a big fish, ^ in a little pond ^ ^ 

           D	       Em            C	      Bm[G]  D      Em  C Bm[G]<=
It doesn't mean you've won, 'cause a-long may come a bigger one ^ ^     ^


CHORUS-2 :
--------
              D
And you'll be lost
		     C   G  D
Every river that you try to cross
		   C    G    D
Every gun you ever held went off


N.B. - Play CHORUS-Riff over the following 2 lines :
        C	 G			 D
Oh, and I'm just waiting till the firing starts
        C	 G			      D
Oh, and I'm just waiting till the shine wears off



Guitar Break : Notice the switch of sequence between Bm and D
------------   - I don't really think it's necessary, but ...

( Em, C, Bm, D )
                                                         
E|---------------10-12-12-12-\-------7-H10-10-10-----------|
B|---3-/-5-5-5-/---------------8\777-------------7\--------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

( Em, C, D, Bm )

E|---------------10-12-12-12-\-------7-H10-10-10-----------|
B|------5-5-5-/----------------8\777-------------7\--------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

( Em, C, Bm, D )

E|---------------10-12-12-12-\-------7-H10-10-10-----------|
B|------5-5-5-/----------------8\777-------------7\--------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

( Em, C, D, Bm )

N.B. Only 1 stike of the 10th fret ----.  on this last one.
                                       V
E|---------------10-12-12-12-\-------7-H10-----------------|
B|------5-5-5-/----------------8\777-----------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

	An alternative way to play this Guitar Break is to use the
           -----------                  ------------
	2nd string ONLY and slide the notes up & down. 
	This is perhaps not so easy on an acoustic guitar where the
	neck usually meets the body at the 14th fret. 
	But is quite effective on an electric guitar. N.B. P = Pull-Off 
	- I'm sure you can think of other alternatives :)
        BTW from the 5th to the 15th is a big slide 
        - remember to hit the breaks !!!

1st time only

                                                    .__ 4th time stop here


N.B. - Play CHORUS-Riff over the whole of the following Part-CHORUS.

Part-CHORUS :
-----------

        C        G	   		      D
Oh, and I'm just waiting till the shine wears off
        C	 G	   		      D
Oh, and I'm just waiting till the shine wears off 

( C, G, D ) x 2


OUTPLAY :
-------
Play the following chord sequence :
N.B. - On the record it's only the keyboard that plays this part.

Em, C, Bm, D
Em, C, Bm 	
Em, C, Bm, D
Em, C, Bm  ... fade 

OK - I've waffled on enough !-) 

     - you can go on forever refining these songs ...

       ... As they say these days ... enjoy !-)
