Life in Technicolor ii acoustic - Coldplay

This is my interpretation of what Chris Martin plays during live performances. I think it is the most accurate
version of the chord variations and tuning he uses for this song.

Use this video for reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNjC5ixoHP4

Tuning: EADGc#c# (same as Violet Hill, check out version 8)

      F#m         D          A         A/G#       C#m         E
c#|----0-----|----0-----|----0-----|----0-----|----0-----|----0-----|
c#|----0-----|----0-----|----0-----|----0-----|----0-----|----0-----|
G |----2-----|----11----|----6-----|----6-----|----9-----|----1-----|
D |----4-----|----12----|----7-----|----7-----|----11----|----2-----|
A |----4-----|----12----|----7-----|----7-----|----11----|----2-----|
E |----2-----|----10----|----5-----|----4-----|----9-----|----0-----|

Note: use thumb to hold down the notes on the E string. Also, the A/G# chord is not necessary, it can be
ignored and the normal A can be played instead. However, the song does sound better with A/G# and this is the
way Chris plays it.
 

[Intro]
F#m-4 D-4 A-6 A/G#-2
F#m-4 D-4 A-8

[Verse 1]
            F#m       D
There's a wild wind blowing
          A
Down the corner of my street
      F#m              D                A    A/G#
Every night there the headlights are glowing
           F#m       D
There's a cold war coming
       A
On the radio I heard
E                    A
Baby it's a violent world

[Chorus 1]
      F#m        D      C#m
Oh oh love don't let me go
           F#m              D             C#m
Won't you take me where the street lights glow?
      F#m       D
I can hear it coming
       A        A/G#   F#m
I can hear the siren sound
        E                     A
Now my feet won't touch the ground

[Interlude]
F#m-4 D-4 A-6 A/G#-2
F#m-4 D-4 A-8

[Verse 2]
F#m          D
Time came a-creeping
        A                  A/G#
Oh and time's a loaded gun
      F#m       D       A
Every road is a ray of light
        F#m  D
It goes on
A
Time'll leak and lead you on
       E                   A
Still it's such beautiful night

[Chorus 2]
       F#m        D     C#m
Oh oh love don't let me go
           F#m              D             C#m
Won't you take me where the street lights glow?
      F#m        D
I can hear it coming
       A   A/G#     F#m
Like a serenade of sound
        E                    A
Now my feet won't touch the ground

[Interlude 2]
F#m-4 D-4 A-6 A/G#-2
F#m-4 D-4 A-8

[Outro]
F#m       D
Gravity release me
           A    A/G#    F#m
And don't ever hold me down
        E                     A
Now my feet won't touch the ground
