Verse:
                    Abm7              B
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
        Gb                        Db
For the break that would make it okay
                    Abm7            B
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
         Gb                      Db
And it's hard at the end of the day
            Abm7              B
I need some distraction, oh, beautiful release
Gb                     Db
Memories seep from my veins
          Abm7           B
Let me be empty, oh and weightless, and maybe
     Gb               Db
I'll find some peace tonight

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

Verse:
                 Abm7                B
So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
        Gb                            Db
There's vultures and thieves at your back
                   Abm7                   B
The storm keeps on twistin', you keep on buildin' the lies
         Gb                        Db
That you make up for all that you lack.
                 Abm7         B
It don't make no difference, escapin' one last time
     Gb         Db
It's easier to believe
              Abm7              B
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
     Gb               Db
That brings me to my knees.

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