A Team Chords/Lyrics/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

A Team Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

         Am7                                    C                                        G
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                                 G/F#              Am7                                                   C
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
                                G
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream
          G/F#
the worst things in life come free to us
                  Em             C                         G
Cos 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           G/F#     Em
It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
          C       G         Em        C    G       G/F#
for angels to fly

A Team Chords/Lyrics/Verse 2

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

A Team Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

         Am7                                    C                                        G
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                                 G/F#              Am7                                                   C
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
                                G
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream
          G/F#
the worst things in life come free to us
                  Em             C                         G
Cos 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           G/F#     Em
It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,

Am7             C/G                    Em
An angel will die, covered in white
   Em                      G
Closed eye and hoping for a better life
Am7                                    C
This time, we’ll fade out tonight,
(Em C   G  G/F# *two times for the solo)
straight down the line

Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting

Crumbling like pastries, and they scream

It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
          C       G         Em        C    G       G/F#
for angels to fly
