[Intro]
Fadd9   Am7   C   G
Dm   Am7   C   G
 
[Verse 1]
Fadd9                 Am7
When an angel fell somewhere in Lothian
C              G                   Dm
I was only a child but I trust my eyes
                     Am7         C
She burnt up like a comet before me
                     G
Before I could even say "Hi"
Fadd9                 Am7
Saw kingdoms come and go in Bernicia
C                       G               Dm
With a space station rattling above my head
               Am7
And I saw the dead
           C    G
I saw the dead
 
 
[Verse 2]
Fadd9                 Am7
Back then, yeah, the door was always open
C                           G               Dm
I'd come and go, back and forth, anytime I need
                    Am7           C
But I'm needing it more now than ever
                   G
'Cause I'm fading away
Fadd9              Am7
And I claw at the door every bad night
C                   G                    Dm
But somehow it's blocked from thе other side
                Am7          C
I claw 'til my skin comes apart
                G
Until I feel something
 
 
[Harmonica Interlude]
Fadd9   Am7   C   G   Dm   Am7   C   G
Fadd9   Am7   C   G   Dm   Am7   C   G
 
[Verse 3]
Fadd9                Am7
And I remember that pain in my mother
C                     G                  Dm
Being helpless and feckless and far too young
                  Am7
My brother was spiraling down
          C                          G
He said “Kid it's not me, it's this town”
Fadd9                   Am7
So I rail against that feeling when it comes
C                   G                  Dm
I no longer have solitude behind that door
              Am7          C
And I know drugs that can hold it
                   G
You gotta hold it yourself
 
 
[Verse 4]
Fadd9                  Am7
I wish an angel fell somewhere in Lothian
C                              G                  Dm
She could've fixed all the problems that I cannot fix
                    Am7
But one day I might have kids myself
      C                             G
And hope that I don't fuck them up myself
 
Hey!

Fadd9   Am7   C   G   Dm   Am7   C   G
Fadd9   Am7   C   G   Dm   Am7   C   G
Fadd9   Am7   C   G   Dm   Am7   C   G
(And I've been here, the door's always open)
Fadd9   Am7   C   G   Dm   Am7   C   G

to see the lyrics Angel In Lothian
                  When an angel fell somewhere in Lothian
I was only a child but I trust my eyes
She [?] cabinet before me
Like I didn't see that

Said "Kid, don't [?] "
With a space station rattling above my head
I shot the day
I shot the day

Back then the other door was always open
I come and go, back and forth, everytime I need
I'm needing you more now than ever
As I'm feeling weak

And I'm clawing that door every bad night
But somehow it's barred from the other side
I claw till my skin comes apart
Until I feel something

Now I remember that pain in my mother
Being helpless and reckless and far too young
My brother was spiralling down
He said "Kid, it's not me, it's this town"

[?]
I no longer have solitude behind that door
And I know drugs that can hold it
You gotta hold it yourself

There was an angel fell somewhere in Lothian
She could've fixed all the problems that I cannot fix
But one day I might have kids myself
And hope that I don't fuck them up myself, hey
