LETRA

The A Team Letra

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
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

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
For angels to fly
Angels to fly
To fly, fly
Or angels to die

Sobre The A Team

  • Sonido minimalista y emotivo, "The A Team" fue el single debut de Ed, que catapultó su carrera a nuevas alturas.

    La canción se centra en una chica con la que Ed habló "cuando hizo un concierto en un albergue para indigentes". El nombre de la chica era Ángel, así que eso es lo que inspiró la letra de la canción "para que los ángeles vuelen". Ed, que estuvo sin hogar durante algunos de los primeros años de su carrera, continúa llamando la atención sobre la falta de hogar y recaudando fondos para One25 y organizaciones benéficas relacionadas con la pobreza.

    "The A Team" vino de una experiencia que tuve cuando hice un concierto en un refugio para indigentes. Tenía 18 años en ese momento y era bastante ingenuo. Por lo tanto, me sorprendieron un poco algunas de las historias que escuché. Llegué a casa esa noche y escribí muchas de las letras. Quería escribirlo para que sonara un poco optimista, para que no supieras realmente de qué se trata, porque es un tema bastante oscuro.
