[Intro]
------
Eb      |Gm  Gm/Bb   |Cm      |Bb(/D)    |  


[Verse 1]
-------
         Eb                    Gm       Gm/Bb   Cm      Bb(/D)  etc.
When you try your best but you don't succeeeeeeeeeeeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

When the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
could it be worse?


[Chorus]
-------
Ab         Eb   Bb 
    Lights will guide you home
Ab      Eb Bb 
    and i--gnite your bones
Ab        Eb   Bb
    And I will try to fix you


[Verse 2]
(same as Verse1):
------------------------
High up above or down below
when you too in love to let it go
If you never try you'll never know
Just what your worth


[Chorus]
-------
Lights will guide you home
and ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you


[Solo]
(repeate twice, then go to Verse3):

-------
Eb                   Ab
    Tears streaming     down your face

Cm                   Ab                    Eb        Bb 
    Tears streaming     down your face and IIIIIIIIIIIIII

Tears streaming down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I


[Chorus]
-------
Ab         Eb   Bb
    Lights will guide you home
Ab      Eb Bb
    And i--gnite your bones
Ab        Eb   Bb             Eb        
    And I will try to fix you


=====================================================================
EXPLANATION:
------------
Gm/Bb   - Gm chord with Bb as bass tone
Bb(/D)  - you can play Bb major chord with D bass (but its up to you)
|       - bar separator, anyway listen to the song for correct timing
In solo:
4/12    - slide from 4th fret to 12th
e       - eight note
=====================================================================
Its simple and beautiful song. I like it the most from X&Y album.

You can play solo on the H string only, but I think this is 
closer to original and its fuller this way.

So tune up and play. Go falzeto singing - if you can :)

...Any correction? Contact me on [email protected]

For all Coldplay and guitar fans (ah, if I had a piano too) out there...
(Sory for my english - I am Slovak.)

About the artist behind Fix You:

Coldplay are an English alternative rock band formed in London in 1997. The group comprises vocalist/pianist/guitarist Chris Martin, lead guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman, and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Will Champion. Coldplay has been one of the most commercially successful bands of the new millennium, selling over 30 million albums. The band is also known for its hit singles, such as "Yellow", "Speed of Sound", the Grammy Award-winning "Clocks" and their latest single, "Viva La Vida".

Coldplay achieved worldwide fame with the release of their single "Yellow", followed by the success of their debut album, Parachutes (2000), which was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Both Parachutes and its follow-up, A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), were released to commercial success; the latter was named NME's Album of the Year. X&Y (2005) received a generally positive reception. From December 2006, the band worked with producer Brian Eno on their fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, which was released on 12 June 2008.

Coldplay's early material was compared to acts such as Jeff Buckley,[1] U2, and Travis.[2] Since the release of Parachutes, Coldplay have drawn influence from other sources, including Echo and the Bunnymen[1] and George Harrison[3] on A Rush of Blood to the Head and Johnny Cash and Kraftwerk for X&Y.[4] Coldplay have been an active supporter of various social and political causes, such as Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign and Amnesty International. The group has also performed at various charity projects such as Band Aid 20, Live 8, and the Teenage Cancer Trust.[5]
