The A Team
Ed Sheeran Lyrics


White lips, pale face
Breathing in the snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste
Light's gone, days 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

'Cause we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
And she don't wanna 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, 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

'Cause we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
But she don't wanna go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the motherland
Sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly

An angel will die
Covered in white
Closed eyes and hopin' 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 upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
And we don't wanna go outside tonight
And in the pipe, fly to the motherland
Or sell love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly
Fly, fly
For angels to fly, to fly, to fly
Angels to die

When this song came out I was in the middle of a ten year heroin addiction. I remember sitting in jail & watching this music videos & all the addicts would sit around & sing it together. It made us feel like we mattered & that we weren’t just human beings to be thrown away.

It was a long hard road & even now I still struggle but I’ve been clean for over 3 years & counting…. Whenever I hear this song it reminds me to be grateful for the life I have now & helps me realize how lucky I am to have made it through to the other side.

Anyone struggling with addiction, you are NOT alone & even tho it may seem hopeless. I promise it’s possible to be happy & sober. Even if it takes a million tries. NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF. Your life is worth something. You are worth something(:

Bob Pop I love Jesus Chirst

I love you
