As Far As I Could Get

As Far As I Could Get by Florence + The Machine

In the celestial vaults, I drew a bedraggled breath. Because I am unloved, I went as far as I could get. In the cedars like sparks, wasting my goddamn time.

Past the museum of death and the madman yelling answers. I sail on new beginnings and psychics taking chances. In the cedars like sparks, wasting my goddamn time.

As far as I could get. I went as far as I could get. In the cedars like sparks, wasting my goddamn time.

Past the spires and the temple, looking like a Disney castle. As far as I could get, past the girls late for rehearsal. Oh, a pirate on the left and Jesus on the right. The Pacific sweeps through like a bird in flight.

Oh, as far as I could get. I went as far as I could get. In the cedars like sparks, wasting my goddamn time.

‘Cause if I am unloved, I have unloved too.

‘Cause if I am unloved, I have unloved too.

I went as far as I could get. I went as far as I could get.

I went as far as I could get. I went as far as I could get.

Past the city and the cement, the cemetery standing still. Past the mountain and the monument, the houses and the hills.

Past the signs and the sirens, the sinners and the saints. I went as far as I could get.

Past the hallowed and the horror, the humbled and agreed. I went as far as I could get.

‘Cause if I am unloved, I have unloved too.

As far as I could get.

As far as I could get.

As far as I could get.

I’m not far enough yet.

I went as far as I could get.

I went as far as I could get.

I went as far as I could get.

I’m not far enough yet.

I went as far as I could get.

I went as far as I could get.

I went as far as I could get, but I’m not far enough yet.

I went as far as I could get.

I went as far as I could get.

I went as far as I could get, but I’m not far enough yet.

See you tomorrow!
