  • Last night I saw a suit give a buck to a bum
    20 feet down the street, someone yelling, look up
    Some girl, maybe eighteen, probably drunk
    Just in time, out the way of a bus

    And maybe things are finally getting better, better
    Maybe everyone is finally fed up enough
    Maybe all the clouds are gonna let up, let up
    Oh ee-oh ee-oh ee-oh oh

    Brown bags, sky high, I see angels in Chelsea
    Wall street, chic life, I see angels in Chelsea
    Lost souls pass by through the chain link and concrete
    And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels around me
    And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels in Chelsea

    Spring street, hear a busker singing the blues
    'Bout peace in the world and some money for food
    And little kid says, I'm gonna be like you
    A superstar, and I'ma make a difference too
    And I'ma make a difference too

    And maybe things are finally getting better, better
    Maybe everyone is finally fed up enough
    Maybe all the clouds are gonna let up, let up
    Oh ee-oh ee-oh ee-oh oh

    Brown bags, sky high, I see angels in Chelsea
    Wall street, chic life, I see angels in Chelsea
    Lost souls pass by through the chain link and concrete
    And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels around me
    And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels in Chelsea

    (Angels in Chelsea)

    Subway, I saw a woman in a beautiful dress
    Head down in her hands, her makeup a mess
    Young mom, two kids, holes in their shoes, says
    I've been there too
    and you're gonna get through
    Yeah, I've been there too
    and you're gonna get through

    Brown bags, sky high, I see angels in Chelsea
    Wall street, chic life, I see angels in Chelsea
    Lost souls pass by through the chain link and concrete
    And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels around me
    And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels in Chelsea

    I see a path in the cold streets
    I see Princes and Jasmines
    I see angels around me
    All these angels in Chelsea
    All these angels around me
    All these angels around me
    I see angels in Chelsea Writer/s: Nash Overstreet, Rachel Platten, West
