The Scientist
Coldplay - The Scientist.

From "A Rush of Blood To The Head"

F-Bb-F-C x2

[Verse 1]
 F             Bb                     F
   Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
F           Bb                   F
  I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I'll set you apart
F                Bb                     F
  Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh lets go back to the start
F             Bb                 F
  Running in circles, coming in tails
Heads only science apart

[Chorus 1]
Bb                        F
  Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Bb                        F
  Nobody said it was easy
No-one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

[Verse 2] - Same chords as first verse

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science in progress
They must speak as loud as my heart
Tell me you love me, come back and hold me
I wanna rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing tails
Comin' in back as we are

[Chorus 2]

Same as first chorus, except last line is
"I'm going back to the start"

Then F-Bb-F-C sequence to the end with some oohing and aahing
 over the top

Im 99.9% sure the chords are right, but some of the lyrics, especially
in the second verse might be a bit wrong. So correct them, if you can.

This song is stunning live, or at least it was at Glastonbury.

About the artist behind The Scientist:

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]
