FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE - As Far As I Could Get

This song is from the album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful(2015), released on Jun 02, 2015.
I loved the bass and the rhythm of this track. The background music felt amazing, the vocals were perfect. The overall quality of the song seems to be excellent and the production feels great as well. Although the song sounds great, the mix felt a bit weird, mainly because of the heavy reverb on the vocals.

[INTRO] Am
[VERSE]
Am
In the celestial vaults
Am
I drew bedraggled breaths
Am
Because I am unloved
Am
I went as far as I could get
Am
In the cedars like sparks
Am
Wasting my goddamn time

Am
Past the museum of death
Am
And the mad man yelling answers
Am
I sail on new beginnings
Am
And psychics taking chances
Am
In the cedars like sparks
Am
Wasting my goddamn time

[CHORUS]
Dm                 G
As far as I could get
   Am                     F
I went as far as I could get
       Dm
In the cedars like sparks
Em                  Am
Wasting my goddamn time

[VERSE]
Am
Past the spires and the temple
Am
Looking like a Disney castle
Am
As far as I could get
Am
Past the girls late for rehearsal
Am
Oh, a pirate on the left
Am
And Jesus on the right
Am
And the Pacific sweeps through
Am
Like a bird in flight

[CHORUS]
Dm                 G
As far as I could get
   Am                     F
I went as far as I could get
       Dm
In the cedars like sparks
Em                  Am
Wasting my goddamn time

[BRIDGE]
        F              G               Am Em
Cause if I am unloved, I have unloved too
        F              G                Am Em
Cause if I am unloved, I have unloved too

[CHORUS]
                F     G
As far as I could get
           Am              F
I went as far as I could get
           Dm             G
I went as far as I could get
           Am             Em
I went as far as I could get

[VERSE]
F
Past the city and the cement
        G
The cemetery standing still
              Am
Past the mountain and the monument
       G
The houses and the hills
           C
Past the signs and the sirens
     F
The sinners and the saints
            Dm
I went as far as I could get...


F
Past the hallowed and the horror
        G
The humbled and agreed
          Am                F
I went as far as I could get
          Dm             Em         Am
Cause if I am unloved, I have unloved too

[CHORUS]
Am
As far as I could get
Am
As far as I could get
Am
As far as I could get
Am
And I'm not far enough yet

[OUTRO]
Am
I went as far as I could get
Am
I went as far as I could get
Am
I went as far as I could get
Am
And I'm not far enough yet
Am
And I'm not far enough yet
Am
And I'm not far enough yet
