Lyric of Ed Sheeran - The A Team

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
But 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
Angels to fly, to fly, to fly
Angels to die

Latest comments about Ed Sheeran - The A Team

  • Ed Sheeran is one of the only current <a href="http://ocuwdejat.com">arsttis</a> out there who writes about the real situations in life, like in the A team how women who are poor and are homeless often have to turn to prostitution, he is getting through to people with his songs! Seriously get over yourself, your opinion is not wanted.

  • Well, everyone is<a href="http://idsbhnn.com"> eteltind</a> to their opinion Sheeran isn't exactly covering new ground here. The Arctic Monkeys were singing about prostitution in 2006 (in my opinion, in a much wittier and generally better way) and bands do continue to address real issues quite a lot. With most managing to do so without banging on about how many gigs they've done and couches they have slept on in every single interview given.

  • The A Team is a song he wrote about a young drug addict he met one night when he was hepling in a homeless shelter, her name was Angel. The song is beautiful, touching and inspiring. It's so great to hear an artist on the radio that cares about more than just going out and getting drunk and partying. His lyrics have touched the lives of so many. The guy is a legend AND I definitely do need his music in my life. He also has the ability to hold a crowd for an hour and a half with just a guitar and his angelic voice. He's humble, modest, talented and driven. The guy is a legend.
