LyricsEdit

Calum:
White lips, pale face
Breathing in snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste
Light's gone, day's end
Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange man

Luke:
And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us

Luke and Calum:
'Cause we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams

Luke:
And she don't want to go outside tonight

Luke and Calum:
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
And sells love to another man

Luke:
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly

Luke:
Ripped gloves, rain coat
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 eighteen
But lately,
her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us

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

Luke:
And she don't want to go outside tonight

Both:
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
And sells love to another man

Luke:
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
