[Intro]

The song started with piano that follow this chord:

A  Bm  D  G   

A  D  A


In the live The edge play harmonics(with delay):

e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|---------7----------------7----------------------|
G|-------------7--------7--------7--------7--------|
D|-----------------7-----------------7-------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|

                 A     Bm     D     G              
The heart is a bloom,       
D                 A
shoots up throught the stony ground
                 A     Bm     D     G
But there's no room, 
D                 A
no space to rent in this town 


Now the egde play this notes with delay(420ms):

                A     Bm     D     G
You're out of luck 
D                     A
and the reason that you had to care,
                  A     Bm     D     G       
the traffic is stuck 
D                    A
and you're not moving anywhere.
                           A     Bm     D     G
You thought you'd found a friend 
D                  A
to take you out of this place
               A     Bm     D     G     
Someone you could lend a hand  
D             A
in return for grace 



It's a beautiful day

(more heavily):

You're on the road but you've got no destination
You're in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if it doesn't ring true
You've been all over and it's been all over you


It's a beautiful day


[Riff 2]

       A    Bm   D        G         D            A

A|------7----9----12----5---5--------12----12-----7----7--|

Don't let it get away

( with the old chords A Bm D..)


Em
See the world in green and blue
D
See China right in front of you
Em              G
See the canyons broken my cloud
D
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
Em             G  
See the bedouin fires at night
D         
See the olis fields at first light 
Em               G
See the bird with a leaf inher mouth
D
After the flood all the colours came out


It was a beautiful day

What you don't know you can feel it someone
         A         Bm       D          G
What you don't have you don't need it now
