[Verse 1]

G
White lips, pale face
                                D      Em
Breathing in snowflakes
                               C       G
Burnt lungs, sour taste
G
Light’s gone, day’s end
                              D     Em
Struggling to pay rent
                                   C          G
Long nights, strange men

 

[Pre-Chorus]

           Am
And they say
                                       C
She’s in the Class A Team
                              G
Stuck in her daydream
                                              D
Been this way since 18
                               Am
But lately her face seems
                                      C
Slowly sinking, wasting
                                     G
Crumbling like pastries

And they scream
            D
The worst things in life come free to us

 

[Chorus 1]

                       Em                        C
Cos we’re just under the upperhand
G
And go mad for a couple of grams
Em                                           C            G
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
                   Em
And in a pipe she flies to the
   C
Motherland
G
Or sells love to another man
Em          C             G
It’s too cold outside
                              Em C G
For angels to fly
                       Em C G
Angels to fly

 

[Verse 2]

G
Ripped gloves, raincoat
                                           D          Em
Tried to swim and stay afloat
                          C      G
Dry house, wet clothes
G
Loose change, bank notes
                               D   Em
Weary-eyed, dry throat
                   C       G
Call girl, no phone

 

[Pre-Chorus]

           Am
And they say
                                       C
She’s in the Class A Team
                              G
Stuck in her daydream
                                              D
Been this way since 18
                               Am
But lately her face seems
                                      C
Slowly sinking, wasting
                                     G
Crumbling like pastries

And they scream
            D
The worst things in life come free to us

 

[Chorus 1]

                       Em                        C
Cos we’re just under the upperhand
G
And go mad for a couple of grams
Em                                           C            G
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
                   Em
And in a pipe she flies to the
   C
Motherland
G
Or sells love to another man
Em          C             G
It’s too cold outside
                              Am
For angels to fly

 

[Bridge]

Am                      C
An angel will die
                           Em
Covered in white

Closed eye
                    G
And hoping for a better life
Am                                              C
This time, we’ll fade out tonight
                                         Em C G
Straight down the line

 

[Pre-Chorus]

           Am
And they say
                                       C
She’s in the Class A Team
                              G
Stuck in her daydream
                                              D
Been this way since 18
                               Am
But lately her face seems
                                      C
Slowly sinking, wasting
                                     G
Crumbling like pastries

And they scream
            D
The worst things in life come free to us

 

[Chorus 2]

                       Em                        C
Cos we’re just under the upperhand
G
And go mad for a couple of grams
Em                                           C            G
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
                   Em
And in a pipe she flies to the
   C
Motherland
G
Or sells love to another man
Em          C             G
It’s too cold outside
                              Em C G
For angels to fly
                       Em C G
Angels to fly
    Em C G
To fly, fly
                      Em      C          G
Angels to fly, to fly, to fly
         D          G
Angels to die
