Coldplay's great 2nd album produced in 2002. please leave feedback: paul06_lfc@hotmail.com 1.Politik This isn't really a guitar song, but this is a good guide to what the piano is playing. Chords defined: Low to high B7: x2120x Em: 022000 Am6: x32210 this could be called Am/C as well G: 320033 or 355433 (I think the latter, the bar chord, sounds better - relative to capo) D6: xx0432 D: xx0232 Capo 1! Intro: B7 Em B7 Em
B7Look at earth from outer space Emeveryone must find a place B7give me time and give me space Emgive me real, don't give me fake B7give me strength, reserve, control Emgive me heart and give me soul B7give me time, give us a kiss B7tell me you're a politik
B7 Em B7 Em

4. The Scientist an incredibly simple but fantastic song to play on an acoustic guitar! there seems to be a lot of confusion about the key of the song. it does state below that a capo is required but for those that don't have a capo i have taken the liberty of putting a set of chords on which do not require a capo and will allow you to play along with the cd.
