Scary Song Lyrics, Ed Sheeran

Check out the index.

+ album at
Ed Sheeran's, "The A Team"
The Lyrics:
White lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste
Light's gone, day's end. struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men

And they say she's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
"She" has white lips because what is referred to as snowflakes is referencing cocaine. Her face is pale because she is outside in the cold. She is likely homeless and poor (hence why she is struggling to pay rent), and it is implied that she's a sex worker. She falls into depression, as she is unhappy with her life choices. Near the end of the song, it is implied that she killed herself.
