 therefore it is optional to play those chords. 

[Verse I]
G                                 G/F#      Em
White lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes
       C9          G       A7sus4
Burnt lungs, sour taste
G                                  G/F#     Em
Light’s gone, day’s end, struggling to pay rent
      C9              G
Long nights, strange men

[Chorus]
    Am7                         C/G                   G
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C/G
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G 
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream 
     D/F#
the worst things in life come free to us
          Em          C9           G
Cos we're just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                     C9       G
 And she don’t want to go outside, tonight
          Em                 C9          G
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
Em         C9      G       D/F#      Em
 It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
C9    G                  Em   C9   G    G/F#
          for angels to fly

[Verse II]
G                                     G/F#      Em
Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and stay afloat
     C9          G        A7sus4
Dry house, wet clothes
G                                   G/F#     Em
Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry throat
      C9        G
Call girl, no phone

[Chorus]
    Am7                         C/G                   G
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C/G
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G 
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream 
     D/F#
the worst things in life come free to us
          Em          C9           G
Cos we're just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                     C9       G
 And she don’t want to go outside, tonight
          Em                 C9          G
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
Em         C9      G       D/F#      Am7
 It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
Am7           C/G             Em
An angel will die, covered in white
  Em            G
Closed eye and hoping for a better life
Am7                        C/G
This time, we’ll fade out tonight,
                    (Em    C/G    G    D/F# *two times for the solo)
straight down the line

[Chorus]
    Am7                         C/G                   G
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C/G
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G 
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream 
     D/F#
the worst things in life come free to us
          Em         C9           G
Cos we're all under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                    C9       G
 And we don’t want to go outside, tonight
          Em              C9          G
And in a pipe we fly to the Motherland, or sell love to another man
Em         C9      G       D/F#      Em
 It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
C9    G                  Em   C9   G    G/F#     Em   C9  G
          for angels to fly                 to fly, fly
    G/F#        Em     C9      G   G/F#   G
for angels to fly, to fly, to fly. Angels die.
