Verse:
                    Fm7              Ab
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
        Eb                        Bb
For the break that would make it okay
                    Fm7            Ab
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
         Eb                      Bb
And it's hard at the end of the day
            Fm7              Ab
I need some distraction, oh, beautiful release
Eb                     Bb
Memories seep from my veins
          Fm7           Ab
Let me be empty, oh and weightless, and maybe
     Eb               Bb
I'll find some peace tonight

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

Verse:
                 Fm7                Ab
So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
        Eb                            Bb
There's vultures and thieves at your back
                   Fm7                   Ab
The storm keeps on twistin', you keep on buildin' the lies
         Eb                        Bb
That you make up for all that you lack.
                 Fm7         Ab
It don't make no difference, escapin' one last time
     Eb         Bb
It's easier to believe
              Fm7              Ab
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
     Eb               Bb
That brings me to my knees.

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

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
