NB for beginners, ignore the variations and just play normal C and G chords throughout, it's easier.
I put them in because it does sound better to play them, but it's not completely necessary.

[Intro]

G   C1  G   C1  G   C1   G   G/F#

[Verse 1]

G                                 G/F#      Em
White lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes
         C2           G        C1
Burnt lungs, sour taste
G                                      G/F#   Em
Light’s gone, day’s end, struggling to pay rent
          C2          G
Long nights, strange men

[Pre-chorus]

Am7                              C3                   G’
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C3
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G’                            D/F#
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us

[Chorus 1]

          Em           C2          G
Cos she's just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                    C2       G
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
         Em                    C2         G
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
Em         C2      G       D/F#      Em    C2    G
It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
              Em   C2   G    G/F#
for angels to fly

[Verse 2]

G                                          G/F#       Em
Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and stay afloat
      C2             G         C1
Dry house, wet clothes
G                                     G/F#      Em
Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry throat
       C2       G
Call girl, no phone

[Pre-chorus]

Am7                              C3                   G’
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C3
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G’                            D/F#
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us

[Chorus 1]

          Em           C2          G
Cos she's just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                    C2       G
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
         Em                    C2         G
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
Em         C2      G       D/F#      Am7
It’s too cold outside for angels to fly

[Bridge]        

Am7           C3              Em
An angel will die, covered in white
       G/F#    G
Closed eye and hoping for a better life
Am7                       C3 –slide-D                Em   C3   G’  D/F#
This time, we’ll fade out tonight, straight down the line
                    Em   C3  G’  D/F#
Straight down the line

[Pre-chorus]

Am7                              C3                   G’
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C3
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G’                            D/F#
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us

[Chorus 2]

          Em           C2         G
And we're all under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                   C2       G
And we don’t want to go outside tonight
         Em                    C2         G
And in a pipe we'll fly to the Motherland, or sell love to another man
Em         C2      G       D/F#      Em    C2    G
It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
              Em   C2   G   G/F#
for angels to flyyyyy
Em   C2   G             G/F# Em   C2       G
Flyyyy, flyyyyyy, angels to  fly, fly, flyyy
   D/F#      G
Or angels to die
