Paradise
There are two possible ways of playing this, and I'll tab both for completeness's sake.

This first version sounds much better, but is a little more difficult.

Tuning: E A D G C F (careful the high strings don't snap during tuning)

Chords:
Gm: 3(t)55300
C: x32000
Dm: 10(t) 12 12 10 00
F: 1(t)33200
Bb: 688700
C/E: 332000
G: 355400


Intro:
Gm C Dm F (x3)
Bb F C/E (x2)
Gm Bb F C (x4)


[Verse]
Dm                  Bb
When she was just a girl,
F                C
She expected the world,
       Dm                 Bb
But it flew away from her reach,
       F               C
So she ran away in her sleep.


[Chorus]
           Gm        Bb
Dreamed of para-para-paradise,
F         C
Para-para-paradise,
Gm        Bb
Para-para-paradise,
F                         C
Every time she closed her eyes.

Gm Bb F C (x2)


[Verse]
Bb                  F(/A)
When she was just a girl,
F(/A)            C
She expected the world,
Bb                         Dm
But it flew away from her reach,
Dm                       C
And bullets catch in her teeth.

Gm
Life goes on,
   Bb
It gets so heavy,
    F                C
The wheel breaks the butterfly.
Gm            Bb
Every tear, a waterfall.

Bb                F
In the night, the stormy night,
               C
She closed her eyes.
       Bb         F
In the night, the stormy night,
         C
Away she flied.


[Chorus]
               Gm        Bb
And dreamed of para-para-paradise,
F         C
Para-para-paradise,
Gm        Bb
Para-para-paradise,
F           C
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh. (x2)

Gm C Dm F (x4)

      Bb          F               C
Still lying underneath the stormy skies
         Bb          F
She said oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.
           C
I know the sun's set to rise.

               Gm        Bb
And dreamed of para-para-paradise,
F         C
Para-para-paradise,
Gm        Bb
Para-para-paradise,
F           C
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh. (x2)


Gm Bb F C (lots of times)

Bb F(/A) Am  Dm G Bb

case you find them tricky to play.

[Verse]
Bm                  G

       Bm                 G
But it flew away from her reach,
       D               A
So she ran away in her sleep.

Para-para-paradise,

Every time she closed her eyes.

About the artist behind Paradise:

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]
