FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE - Delilah

This song is from the album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful(2015), released on Jun 02, 2015.
I loved the feel and vibe of the production. The chords used were interesting. Usually I use that progression towards the ends of songs, but this song had that A F G chord progression in the verse itself and I enjoyed it. The vocals were powerful and energetic, made the song really interesting.

[INTRO]
[VERSE]
A                                    F
Drifting through the halls with the sunrise
F                    G
Holding on for your call
G                                           E
Climbing up the walls for that flashing light
F              A
I can never let go
A                                         F
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
F                   G
Holding on for your call
G                                        E
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
F
Maybe not tonight


A                                F
Now the sun is up and I'm going blind
F                     G
Holding on for your call
G                               E
Another drink just to pass the time
 F             A
I can never say no
A                                         F
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
F
Holding on for your call
G                                           E
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
      F
But maybe not tonight

[CHORUS]
A                           F
It's a different kind of danger
F                         G
And the bells are ringing out
G                         E
And I'm calling for my mother
    F                   A
As I pull the pillars down
A                           F
It's a different kind of danger
F
And my feet are spinning around
G                     E
Never knew I was a dancer
      F                  A
'till Delilah showed me how

[VERSE]
A
Too fast for freedom
F                         G
Sometimes it all falls down
G                       E
These chains never leave me
    F
I keep dragging them around


A                                               F
Now I'm dancing with Delilah and her vision is mine
F                      G
Holding on for your call
G                                    Dm F
A different kind of danger in the daylight
               A
I can never let go
A                                F
Took anything to cut you I can find
                      G
Holding on for your call
                                      E
A different kind of a danger in the daylight
F
Can't you let me know


A                                         F
Now it's one more boy and it's one more line
F                      G
Holding on for your call
G                                 E
Taking the pills just to pass the time
 F              A
I can never say no
A                                         F
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
F                    G
Holding on for your call
G                                         E
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
E     F          A
But maybe not tonight
