JOJO - Far From Heaven

This song is from her upcoming album and was released on April 15, 2015.
I loved the power in her voice. The bridge and the choruses were extremely powerful. I loved the simple composition and the organ in the background. The piano and the ooh choruses made the song similar to Hozier's "Take Me To Church" but it gave a unique feel as well. The tempo felt smooth, although a slower tempo would have made this song even more powerful.

[INTRO] Am C Dm Em
[VERSE]
Am         C             Dm               Em
I heard an echo in your heart, in your heart
Am            C              Dm               Em
It was worth saving, so I thought, so I thought
             Am               C
But time passed us by, wasn't on our side
             Dm   Em
Think it skipped us
           Am                  C
And if all our dreams weren't meant to be,
             Dm Em
Can I miss them?

[CHORUS]
              Am                    C
So far from Heaven with nowhere to run
                    Dm                         E
Should've seen it coming, but we followed the sun
             Am               C
Far from perfect in this universe
           Dm                        E
No use fixing the things that never work
              Am  C
So far from Heaven,
              Dm E
So far from Heaven

[VERSE]
Am      C                         Dm                  Em
If only I could see through your eyes, through your eyes
Am      C                   Dm                     Em
I could understand every reason why, or at least try
      Am                        C
If I told you things that you wanted to hear,
             Dm Em
Would you listen?
       Am                     C
Every piece you see that you took from me,
            Dm Em
They were given!

[CHORUS]
              Am                    C
So far from Heaven with nowhere to run
                    Dm                         E
Should've seen it coming, but we followed the sun
             Am               C
Far from perfect in this universe
           Dm                        E
No use fixing the things that never work
              Am  C
So far from Heaven,
              Dm E
So far from Heaven

[INSTRUMENTAL] Am C Dm Em

[BRIDGE]
Am
So far from me,
C
I'm slipping away
Dm
So far from me,
E
Keep slipping away
Am
So far from me,
C
Keep slipping away
Dm
Keep slipping away
E
Keep slipping away

[CHORUS]
              Am                    C
So far from Heaven with nowhere to run
                    Dm                         E
Should've seen it coming, but we followed the sun
             Am               C
Far from perfect in this universe
           Dm                        E
No use fixing the things that never work
              Am  C
So far from Heaven,
              Dm E
So far from Heaven
