    Intro:  C  Fmaj7/A  (x2)


                                 Dm7                 F

    Spend all your time waiting for that second chance,

                C                   F          G
    For the break that will make it okay.

                                   Dm7               F
    There’s always some reason to feel not good enough,

                C               F              G
    And it’s hard at the end of the day.

                       Dm7                F
    I need some distraction or a beautiful release,

    C             F                   G
    Memories seep from my veins.

                    Dm7          F
    Let me be empty and weightless and maybe,

         C             F        Gsus4
    I’ll find some peace tonight.



              C      Cadd9    C          Em
    In the arms of the angel fly away from here,

                     F                                          C                             G
    From this dark, cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear.

                 C       Cadd9       C                     Em
    You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie,

                         F                                      C   G
    You’re in the arms of the angel, may you find some comfort here.


    Repeat Intro


                           Dm7                 F
    So tired of the straight line and everywhere you turn,

                 C                   F                    G
    There’s vultures and thieves at your back.

                                   Dm7                          F
    The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies,

                C             F                G
    That make up for all that you lack.

                                Dm7        F
    It don’t make no difference, escape one last time,

           C    F          G
    It’s easier to believe.

                           Dm7                  F
    In this sweet madness, oh, this glorious sadness,

               C           F           Gsus4
    That brings me to my knees



    C                    F                                      C   G
    You’re in the arms of the angel, may you find some comfort here.




    C   Fmaj7/A  (x3)
