The a team

  

Capo op 2
 
G           
White lips, pale face,
C            Em
Breathing in snowflakes,
G           C           
Burnt lungs, sour taste.
G
Light’s gone, day’s end,
C             Em
Struggling to pay rent,
G            C            
Long nights, strange men.
Am                             C
And they say she’s in the Class A Team,
           G
Stuck in her daydream,
                  D                  Am
Been this way since 18, 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,
          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                          C
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland,
  G
Or sells love to another man,
Em       C
It’s too cold outside,
G             Em
For angels to fly,
D          Em
Angels to fly,
 
G
Ripped gloves, raincoat,
C                 Em
Tried to swim and stay afloat,
G          C            
Dry house, wet clothes.
G
Loose change, bank notes,
C           Em
Weary-eyed, dry throat,
G          C          
Call girl, no phone.
 
Am                             C
And they say she’s in the Class A Team,
           G
Stuck in her daydream,
                  D                  Am
Been this way since 18, 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,
          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                          C
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland,
  G
Or sells love to another man,
Em       C
It’s too cold outside,
G             Em
For angels to fly,
 
Am            C
An angel will die.
G            D
Covered in white,
Em
Closed eye,
   C            G
And hoping for a better life,
Am               C        G  
This time, we’ll fade out tonight,
C                 Em
Straight down the line.
Am                             C
And they say she’s in the Class A Team,
           G
Stuck in her daydream,
                  D                  Am

It’s too cold outside,
G             Em
For angels to fly,
C         Em
Angels To fly, fly,fly
G        Em       D        Em
Angels to fly, to fly, to fly
G          Em
Angels die.
