    Lyrics

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

    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
    Cos we're just 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

    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

    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
    Cos we're just 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
    An angel will die
    Covered in white
    Closed eye
    And hoping for a better life
    This time, we'll fade out tonight
    Straight down the line

    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
    They scream
    The worst things in life come free to us
    And we're all under the upperhand
    Go mad for a couple of grams
    And we don't want to go outside tonight
    And in a pipe we fly to the Motherland
    Or sell love to another man
    It's too cold outside
    For angels to fly
    Angels to fly
    To fly, fly
    For angles to fly, to fly, to fly
    Or angels to die

      Well, this isn't Aide Chirâne's version to be aired on radios in France... It's the one by a Swiss boy named Luca Hänni. And I like Luca's version better than his. The instruments should've been more symphonic, with a string ensemble instead of the acoustic guitar.

      What is his song about ? A high-class girl being raped, who drinks and smokes to forget this bad event ?

      I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!!!!

      Besides it's impossible awesomeness for being about a.. broken gardening tool.. it has a cult following: Girls from around the world are going ape listening to this song! I hear them singing it to themselves pretty often. And they have NO IDEA what it's about!! That is the best part!

      Mr Sheeran, I would like to sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for this stroke of pure genius.

      But more than it's impossible awesomeness for being about a.. broken gardening tool.. is all the girls who go nuts over it! "like omg! it's like totally radiating with beauty and junk!!" And they have NO IDEA what the song's really about!

      HAHAHAHAHAHA

      Mr Sheeran, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart, sincerely, for this work of genius!
