Verse:
                    Em7              G
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
        D                        A
For the break that would make it okay
                    Em7            G
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
         D                      A
And it's hard at the end of the day
            Em7              G
I need some distraction, oh, beautiful release
D                     A
Memories seep from my veins
          Em7           G
Let me be empty, oh and weightless, and maybe
     D               A
I'll find some peace tonight

Chorus:
       D                       Gbm
In the arms of the angel, fly away from here
          G                              D                    A
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
        D                               Gbm 
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
              G                          D      A               D  
You're in the arms of the angel, may you fiiiiiind some comfort here.

Verse:
                 Em7                G
So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
        D                            A
There's vultures and thieves at your back
                   Em7                   G
The storm keeps on twistin', you keep on buildin' the lies
         D                        A
That you make up for all that you lack.
                 Em7         G
It don't make no difference, escapin' one last time
     D         A
It's easier to believe
              Em7              G
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
     D               A
That brings me to my knees.

Chorus:
       D                       Gbm
In the arms of the angel, fly away from here
          G                              D                    A
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
        D                               Gbm 
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
              G                          D      A               D  
You're in the arms of the angel, may you fiiiiiind some comfort here.
              G                          D      A               G
You're in the arms of the angel, may you fiiiiiind some comfort hereeeee.

I like to throw an Am in between C and G on the verse.
