Verse:

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

*Strum G/F# once in pattern on way to Em.
 
Pre-Chorus: 

Am7                             C2                   G     
And they say she's in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                         C2
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:

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


Verse:

Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes
Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry throat
Call girl, no phone

Pre-Chorus:

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

Chorus:

Cause we're all under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
And she don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside for angels to fly 

Bridge:

Am7           C2              Em
An angel will die, covered in white
Em             G
Closed eye and hoping for a better life
Am7                       C2                         Em
This time, we'll fade out tonight, straight down the line
                  G
Straight down the line

Pre-Chorus:

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

Chorus:
Cause we're all under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
And she don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside for angels to fly 
Angels to fly
To fly, fly
Or angels to die

End
