Em                     Dsus2     Bm
  You see the world in black and white
   C         Am     Em
No colour or light
Em                       Dsus2  Bm   
  You think you'll never get it right
           C         Am     Em
But you're wrong you might

Em                         Dsus2   Bm
  The sky could fall could fall on me
    C       Am     Em
The parting of the seas
Em                       Dsus2   Bm
  But you mean more mean more to me
         C            Am   Em
Than any colour I can see

C                         Am                    
  All you ever wanted was love
                           Em
But you never looked hard enough
                             A
It's never gonna give itself up

C                            Am
  And all you ever wanted to be
                       Em
Living in perfect symmetry
                               A
Nothing is as down on Earth as us
   C
as us

Em                     Dsus2     Bm
  You see the world in black and white
    C       Am    Em
Not painted right
Em                   Dsus2   Bm
  You see no meaning to your life
        C    Am   Em
Yes you try
        C    Am   Em
Yes you try

(repeat lead intro)

C                             Am                    
  And all you ever wanted was love
                           Em
But you never looked hard enough
                             A
It's never gonna give itself up

C                            Am
  And all you ever wanted to be
                       Em
Living in perfect symmetry
                           A
Nothing is as down on this Earth

  Don't you want to see it come soon
                           G
Floating in a big white balloon
                 C          A
Or given on your own silver spoon

G                             Em

                            G

About the artist behind Low:

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]
