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.

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