The Scientist by Coldplay – Lyrics with Chords


Em-C-G-Gsus2 (x2)

Verse 1

Em        C                     G
Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry

Gsus2                     Em
You don’t know how lovely you are

C                              G
I had to find you, tell you I need you

Gsus2     Em
Tell you I set you apart

C                        G
Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions

Gsus2                             Em
Oh lets go back to the start

C                               G
Running in circles, coming up tails

Gsus2                       C
Heads are a science apart


Nobody said it was easy

Gsus2              C
It’s such a shame for us to part

Nobody said it was easy

Gsus2                    D (Dsus4 D)
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh take me back to the start

Em-C-G-Gsus2 (x2)

Verse 2: (same chords as verse 1)

Em        C                     G

I was just guessing at numbers and fingers

Gsus2                     Em
Putting the puzzles apart

C                              G
Questions of science, science and progress

Gsus2     Em
Did not speak as loud as my heart

C                               G
Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me

I wanna rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are


Em          C            G             Gsus2
Ooooohoooooooo (x4)
