Speed Of Sound
Intro



Verse

    A              Em7
How long before I get in?

      G                        D
Before it starts, before I begin?

    A                 Em7
How long before you decide?

      G                        D
Before I know what it feels like?

      A             Em7 
Where to, where do I go?

                                D
If you never try, you'll never know,

    A                 Em7  
How long do I have to climb?

      G                             D
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Instrumental

Verse

     A                Em7
Look up, I look up at night

       G                             D
Planets are moving at the speed of light

      A             Em7
Climb up, up in the trees

         G                                  D
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize

    A                Em7
How long am I gonna stand

       G                       D
With my head stuck under the sand

     A                 Em7                    
I'll start before I can stop

       G                           D
Before I see things the right way up



Pre Chorus

 G        A 
  All that noise

               Bm 
  And all that sound 

 G          A            Bm
  All those places I got found

Chorus

   G                       Bm7 
And birds go flying at the speed of sound

   D                      G
To show you how it all began

                           Bm7
Birds came flying from the ground

             F#m                         G
If you could see it then you'd understand

Instrumental

Verse

 A                        Em7
Ideas that you'll never find

       G                           D 
All the inventors could never design

    A                      Em7
The buildings that you put up

      G                  D
Japan and China all lit up

  A                     Em7
A sign that I couldn't read

      G                     D
Or a light that I couldn't see

      A                    Em7
Some things you have to believe

        G                     D
Others are puzzles, puzzling me

Pre Chorus

 G         A
  All that noise

               Bm
  And all that sound

 G         A             Bm  
  All those places I got found

Chorus

    G                      Bm
And birds go flying at the speed of sound


   D                     G
To show you how it all began

                            Bm 
Birds came flying from the underground

            F#m                     G 
If you could see it then you'd understand

            F#m                     G
Ah, when you see it then you'd understand

Instrumental

D all along

Pre Chorus

 G          A                       Bm
  All those signs, I knew what they meant

                  E
  Some things you can't invent

 G        A                 Bm        E
  Some get made and some get sent, ooh

Chorus

    G                      Bm
And birds go flying at the speed of sound

   D                  G
To show you how it all began

                           Bm
Birds came flying from the underground

             F#m                    G
If you could see it then you'd understand

             F#m                    G                  
Ah, when you see it then you'll understand

Ending

G all along

About the artist behind Speed Of Sound:

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]
