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

Am7 Am7 C C
And they say she's in the Class A A Team,
G G
Stuck in her daydream,
D D Am7 Am7
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems
C C
Slowly sinking, wasting,
G G
Crumbling like pastries,

And they scream,
D D
The worst things in life come free to us,
Em Em C C
Cos we're just under the upperhand,
G G
And go mad for a couple of grams,
Em Em C C G G
And she don't want to go outside tonight,
Em Em C C
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland,
G G
Or sells love to another man,
Em Em C C
It's too cold outside,
G G Em Em
For angels to fly,
D D Em Em
Angels to fly,

G G
Ripped gloves, raincoat,
Em Em
Tried to swim and stay afloat,
C C G G
Dry house, wet clothes.

Loose change, bank notes,
Em Em
Weary-eyed, dry throat,
C C G G
Call girl, no phone.


Am7 Am7 C C
And they say she's in the Class A A Team,
G G
Stuck in her daydream,
D D Am7 Am7
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems
C C
Slowly sinking, wasting,
G G
Crumbling like pastries,

And they scream,
D D
The worst things in life come free to us,
Em Em C C
Cos we're just under the upperhand,
G G
And go mad for a couple of grams,
Em Em C C G G
And she don't want to go outside tonight,
Em Em C C
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland,
G G
Or sells love to another man,
Em Em C C
It's too cold outside,
G G Em Em
For angels to fly,
D D Em Em
Angels to fly,
Am7 Am7 C C
An angel will die.

G G D D
Covered in white,
Em Em
Closed eye,
C C G G
And hoping for a better life,
Am Am C C
This time, we'll fade out tonight,
G G Em Em
Straight down the line.

Am7 Am7 C C
And they say she's in the Class A A Team,

Stuck in her daydream,
D D Am7 Am7
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems

To fly, fly,

Angels to fly, to fly, to fly,

Angels to die.

Most of this is pretty good, some of the transitions (like from Am7 to C) don't make sense. There's not much of a difference between them here but in the actual song there is a more noticeable note change.

Literally perfect - best tab for A Team I've seen. Sounds good, it's at the tone I can sing at (yay!) and easy chords for someone who's played for only 4 weeks. Did a full run through not even looking at my uke, good transitioning :D
