[Verse 1]
C#m                                              C#m7/B
Was a long and dark December from the rooftops I remember 
          A            F#m   Fm   Em
There was snow, white snow 
 C#m                                          C#m7/B
Clearly I remember from the windows they were watching 
          A            F#m   Fm   Em
While we froze down below 
                A                   B                      C#m    
When the future's architectured by a carnival of idiots on show 
                 B            
You'd better lie low 

[Chorus]
G#m     A   G#m E        C#m B   C#m    
If you love me won’t you let me know? 

[Verse 2]
      C#m                                           C#m7/B
Was a long and dark December when the banks became cathedrals 
                A           F#m    Fm    Em
And the fog, became God 
 C#m    
Priests clutched onto bibles 
                          C#m7/B
Hollowed out to fit their rifles 
         A           F#m   Fm   Em
And the cross  held aloft 
A                          B
Bury me in armour when I'm dead and hit the ground 
              C#m           B
My nerves are poles that unfroze

[Chorus]
G#m     A   G#m E        C#m B   C#m    
If you love me won’t you let me know? 

[Solo]
C#m      C#m7/B   A          F#            Fm             Em  
C#m      C#m7/B   A          F#            Fm             Em  

[Verse 3]
        A                            B
I don't want to be a soldier who the captain of some sinking ship 
      C#m       B     
Would stow, far below 

[Chorus]
   G#m     A   G#m E         C#m B  C#m    
So if you love me  Why'd you let me go? 

[Outro]
A   B       C#m  F#m     E  C#m     B   A 
  I took my love down to violet hill 
A     B  C#m G#m      A
There we sat in the snow 
A   B    C#m  F#m     E  C#m      B 
All that time she was silent still 
   G#m     A   G#m E         C#m B   A 
So If you love me  won’t you let me know? 
G#m     A   G#m E         C#m B  C#m    
If you love me, Won't you let me know

I've tried C#m7 and B for the second chord but neither sound as nice as Chris Martin's in the first link. Help please! PS I do have the right tuning!

I meant I've tried C#m7/B and it doesn't sound right. You should do a vid of you playing it! Doesn't have to be a tutorial, just you playing it.

I feel that either C#m7 or B sound the best for the second chord, if you don't feel either are working, you can try:
(7-11-11-9-0-0). Chris also uses this chord sometimes, but it is so hard to do that I just posted the other two he uses (C#m7 and B).
