The A Team lyrics

Facebook Originally recorded and released in 2010, Ed Sheeran's song 'The A Team' was written after he volunteered at a Crisis homeless shelter during the Christmas of 2009. It served as the first single from his fifth EP 'Loose Change' and went to be his first single from his debut studio album '+' in 2011. The song depicts the dark life of a homeless drug addict called Angel, who sells her body so she can afford to feed her cocaine addiction, to the point she kills herself from an overdose.

Verse 1White lips, pale face
Breathing in the snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste


Light's gone, day's end
Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men


ChorusAnd 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 she's just under the upper hand
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


Verse 2Ripped gloves, raincoat
Tried to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes

Loose change, bank notes
Weary-eyed, dry throat

Call girl, no phone

ChorusAnd 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 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

BridgeAn angel will die covered in white
Closed eyes and hoping for a better life
This time, we'll fade out tonight
Straight down the line


ChorusAnd 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
We'll 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 angels to fly
To fly, to fly
For angels to die
