The A Team
by Ed Sheeran

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

'Cause we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple 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

'Cause we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
But she don't want to 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
And 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 want to 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
For angels to die

I met an escort several years ago and we became somewhat close friends in addition to our other "relationship." She was 30 and I was 46; she was so intelligent and had a wicked sense of humor in addition to being just gorgeous. Over the next 2-3 years, I would see her 5-6 times a year but we also kept in touch via text. Little did I know she had a drug habit (heroin) until she dropped off the radar for a few months (got arrested) and then texted me out of the blue several months later. We caught up via text over a couple of days and she finally came clean with me that she had a nine year heroin habit. I was devastated - cried hard that night for how messed up her life was. She lived in a different state/city and needed a place to crash for awhile, so I invited her to come live with me. I had never heard of Ed Sheeran prior to meeting her but on one of our road trips, she played this song - I didn't catch all the lyrics but later that night while she was in the shower, I looked up the lyrics and watched this video. I cried hard. Again. Sobbed. Swore I would do whatever I could to help her get her life back on track. She no longer lives with me but she's recently made great strides in kicking her habit and I'm still helping support her at the moment. I will forever remember her when I hear this song and it's hard to listen to it without tears flowing. I never told her this but I love that girl.
