Hey Everyone,

Hot off my arrangement converter is this lovely song by Coldplay. From their second album A Rush of Blood to the Head. Released August 2002 it reached No2 in the UK’s singles chart.

In my arrangement I have used clarinets on the melody on both lower and higher octaves. I also use both harp and misty mountains harp to help separate the string sounds. I bring in the bagpipes in the lower range on the last part of the melody with a tiny touch of +ppp+ pibgorn. The horn plays the famous riff and the flutes bring up some sustained strings. Percussion is a very simple drum on bass, tom and short rattle and a cowbell just supports that strong beat.

“In My Place”

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn’t change
I was lost, oh yeah

I was lost, I was lost
Crossed lines I shouldn’t have crossed
I was lost, oh yeah

Yeah, how long must you wait for it?
Yeah, how long must you pay for it?
Yeah, how long must you wait for it, oh, for it?

I was scared, I was scared
Tired and under-prepared
But I’ll wait for it

If you go, if you go
Leave me down here on my own
Then I’ll wait for you, yeah.

Yeah, how long must you wait for it?
Yeah, how long must you pay for it?
Yeah, how long must you wait for it, oh, for it?

Singing
Please, please, please
Come back and sing to me
To me, to me

Come on and sing it out, now, now
Come on and sing it out to me, me
Come back and sing it

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn’t change
And I was lost, oh yeah
Oh yeah
