Coldplay - Hurts Like Heaven Guitar Chords

Coldplay

permanent wave, pop

Song versions: 1 2 3 4
Chords: E, E/F#, A, B, G#
I have seen many chords of this song, but they do not have the correct tuning. So, I decided to
make it myself and share it. 

Chris Martin plays with capo on the 6th fret with this tuning: E B E G# B e
but this tuning might break the strings due to the tension. So, if you don't want to risk your strings,
you could also play the song with capo on the 8th fret with this tuning: D A D F# A d

E
Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park,
                                          E/F#
Do you ever get the feeling that you're missing the mark?
A
It's so cold, so cold,
A
It's so cold, so cold.

E
Written up in marker on a factory sign,
                                     E/F#   
I struggle with the feeling that my life isn't mine.
A
It's so cold, so cold,
A
It's so cold, so cold.

B
See the arrow that they shot, trying to tear us apart.
B
took the fire from my belly, and the beat from my heart
A
Still I won't let go,
A
Still I won't let go.

E    E/F#    A
You,
E 
Yes, you do.
    B 
Oh you, use your heart as a weapon,
A
And it hurts like heaven.



(In this solo, Chris Martin does something like this:)

E
On every street, every car, every surface are names,
                                       E/F#
And now the streets arise and we're writing the same.
A
Don't let them take control,
A
No, we won't let them take control.

(E)
Yes, I feel a little bit nervous,
                            (E/F#)
Yes, I feel nervous and I cannot relax.
(A)
How come they're out to get us?
(A)
How come they're out when they don't know the facts?

B
So on a concrete canvas under cover of dark,
B
On a concrete canvas I go making my mark.
A
Armed with the spray can soul,
A
I'll be armed with the spray can soul.

E    E/F#    A
You,
    E    E/F#    A
Oh you 
       B
'Cause you use your heart as a weapon,
A                      
And it hurts like heaven.

E    E/F#    A    E    E/F#    A

B     A     E
Whoa, whoa, 
      G#
It's true,
      B                        
When you use your heart as a weapon,
A
And it hurts like heaven 

E    E/F#    A    E    E/F#   A    

                     E
And it hurts like heaven.
