Coldplay - Glass of water

Tabbed by Deluke

Hey guys! I went through some of the tabs online and found that none of them 
actually displayed the sound of the song properly. So i did my own one and there you go! 
Don't get afraid of the chords. They're basically only little variations of D.
Listen to the song to get a feeling for the strumming especially in the Verses 
where it's the same over and over again.
I tried to match the Chords to the words the best i could. It seems very untidy at 
first but makes it much easier to play and sing along.

Have fun!

=== VERSE 1 ===

Dsus4-D   Dsus2  D7Maj   Dsus4-D
Scared of losin' all the time

   Dsus2 D7Maj   Dsus4-D
He wrote it in a letter, 

   Dsus2 D7Maj     Dsus4-D
he was a friend of mine


Dsus4-D  Dsus2     D7Maj    Dsus4-D
He heard you could see your future

  Dsus2   D7Maj   Dsus4-D
Inside a glass of water 
 
     Dsus2   D7Maj   Dsus4-D  Dsus2 D7Maj
with ripples and the lines

              Gsus2                       Aadd9
And he asked, "Will I see heaven in mine?"

=== FILL ===

=== VERSE 2 ===

Dsus4-D Dsus2    D7Maj  Dsus4-D
That is just the way it was

Dsus2   D7Maj    Dsus4-D
Nothing could be better 

    Dsus2   D7Maj Dsus4-D Dsus2 D7Maj
and nothing ever  was

    Dsus4-D  Dsus2   D7Maj    Dsus4-D
Oh, they say you can see your future

  Dsus2  D7Maj    Dsus4-D
Inside a glass of water, 

    Dsus2   D7Maj   Dsus4-D Dsus2 D7Maj
the riddles and the rhymes

Gsus2                       Aadd9
"Will I see heaven in mine?"


=== Chorus ===

D   F#m  Bm  G
son, 

      D   F#m  Bm  G
don't ask

        D    F#m     Bm   G        D   F#m  Bm  G
Neither how full nor empty is your glass

D   F#m  Bm  G
Cling 
     
       D   F#m  Bm  G
to the mast

           D      F#m Bm  G         G    E5  G
Spend your whole life living in the past
      
      A    
Going nowhere fast

=== FILL ===

Dsus4-D    Dsus2 D7Maj (2x)

=== VERSE 3 ===

Dsus4-D Dsus2    D7Maj Dsus4-D
So he   wrote it on a  wall

    Dsus2 D7Maj  Dsus4-D
The hollowest of halos 

   Dsus2  D7Maj  Dsus4-D
is no   halo at   all

Dsus4-D Dsus2   D7Maj   Dsus4-D Dsus2  D7Maj Dsus4-D
Tele -  visions selling plastic figurines of leaders

   Dsus2  D7Maj   Dsus4-D
Saying nothing at all

             Gsus2                  Aadd9
And you chime, stars in heaven align

=== Chorus ===

D   F#m  Bm  G
son, 

      D   F#m  Bm  G
don't ask

        D    F#m     Bm   G        D   F#m  Bm  G
Neither how full nor empty is your glass

D   F#m  Bm  G
Cling 
     
       D   F#m  Bm  G
to the mast

           D      F#m Bm  G         G    E5  G
Spend your whole life living in the past

      A
Going nowhere fast
