Verse 1:

F#m         A            Bm/E
	What if there was no lie
    E                          D
	Nothing wrong, nothing right
    F#m         A            Bm/E
	What if there was no time
    E                    D
	And no reason or rhyme
    D/B	                   E
	What if you should decide
                  F#m          D             E
	That you don't want me there by your side
                  F#m          D             E
	That you don't want me there in your life

Verse 2:

F#m         A        Bm/E	
	What if I got it wrong
    E                  D
	And no poem or song
    F#m           A                Bm/E
	Could put right what I got wrong
    E                        D
	Or make you feel I belong
    D/B	                   E
	What if you should decide
                  F#m          D             E
	That you don't want me there by your side
                  F#m          D             E
	That you don't want me there in your life

Chorus:

D            Bm
	Uuuh, that's right
    F#m                            E     
	Let's take a breath, try to hold it inside
        D            Bm
	Uuuh, that's right
    F#m                          E   
	I can't ignore it if you don't even try
	D            Bm
	Uuuh, that's right

Verse 3:

F#m       A             Bm/E
	Every step that you take
    E                         D
	Could be your biggest mistake
    F#m          A                Bm/E
	It could bend or it could break
    E                         D
	That's the risk that you take
    D/B	                   E
	What if you should decide
                  F#m          D             E
	That you don't want me there by your side
                  F#m          D             E
	That you don't want me there in your life

Chorus:

D            Bm
	Uuuh, that's right
    F#m                            E     
	Let's take a breath, try to hold it inside
        D            Bm
	Uuuh, that's right
    F#m                          E   
	I can't ignore it if you don't even try

G            D
	Uuuh, that's right
	E

D            Bm
	Uuuh, that's right
    F#m                            E     
	Let's take a breath, try to hold it inside
        D            Bm
	Uuuh, that's right
    F#m                          E   
	I can't ignore it if you don't even try

G            D
	Uuuh, that's right
	E

About the artist behind What If:

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]
