Q. Hello Oracle !
Can you tell me why How You See The World have 2 versions? And only 1 on colplaying.com ? I'm very curious about the story of this song :-)
Thanks a lot !
Isa


The Oracle replies:

I think you mean Coldplay.com? Coldplaying is an unofficial fan site so I can't comment on their content.
The first version of the song appeared on the Japanese release of X&Y as a bonus track. Chris re-recorded vocals with new lyrics for the second version that was re-written for the Help!: A Day in the Life album.

The version we have on our site (the b side to The Hardest Part) is listed as it appears on the sleeve as How You See The World but it is actually no. 2.
