FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE - Never Let Me Go

This song is from the album Ceremonials(2011), released on 01 November 2011.
I loved the production and the power of the lyrics. The execution felt perfect, the background music was interesting and the solid piano in the background added a nice layer of power and energy. Thanks to Em for this excellent suggestion.

[INTRO] A
[VERSE]
D
Looking up from underneath
A
Fractured moonlight on the sea
F#m
Reflections still look the same to me
E
As before I went under

D
And it's peaceful in the deep
A                            F#m
Cathedral where you cannot breathe
F#m                         E
No need to pray, no need to speak
E
Now I am under all

[PRE-CHORUS]
D
And it's breaking over me
F#m                              E
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
E                            D
Found the place to rest my head
D
Never let me go
D
Never let me go
D
Never let me go
D
Never let me go

[CHORUS]
          A           E         F#m    D
And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
     A           E            F#m       D
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
          F#m         E           F#m        D
And the crashes are heaven for a sinner like me
          A           E       F#m  E
But the arms of the ocean delivered me

[VERSE]
D
Though the pressure's hard to take
A
It's the only way I can escape
F#m                         E
It seems a heavy choice to make
E
And now I am under all

[PRE-CHORUS]
D
And it's breaking over me
F#m                              E
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
E                            D
Found the place to rest my head
D
Never let me go
D
Never let me go
D
Never let me go
D
Never let me go

[CHORUS]
          A           E         F#m    D
And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
     A           E            F#m       D
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
          F#m         E           F#m        D
And the crashes are heaven for a sinner like me
          A           E       F#m
But the arms of the ocean delivered me

[BRIDGE]
    E      A/C# D
And it's over
        F#m     E
And I'm going under
             A/C#   D
But I'm not giving up
      F#m         E
I'm just giving in


A/C# D  F#m       E
I'm slipping underneath
A/C# D F#m      E
So cold and so sweet


[CHORUS]
          A           E         F#m    D
And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
     A           E            F#m       D
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
          F#m         E           F#m        D
And the crashes are heaven for a sinner like me
          A           E       F#m  E
But the arms of the ocean delivered me
D
Never let me go
A
Never let me go
E
Never let me go
F#m
Never let me go
        D
Deliver me
D
Never let me go
A
Never let me go
E
Never let me go
F#m          D
Never let me go
D
Never let me go
A
Never let me go
E
Never let me go
F#m
Never let me go
        D
Deliver me
D
Never let me go
A
Never let me go
E
Never let me go
F#m          D
Never let me go
