As Far As I Could Get - Florence And The Machine

In the celestial vaults
I drew bedraggled breaths
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 mad man 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
And 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

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
And 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
And I'm not far enough yet
And I'm not far enough yet
And I'm not far enough yet
