Verse 1
 E
You've got the best of both worlds
 G#m7F#m7
     You're the kind of girl who can take down a man
 AB
And lift him back up again
 EG#m7
You are strong, but you're needy, humble but you're greedy
 F#m7AB
And based on your body language and shouted cursive I've been reading
 EG#m7
Your style is quite selective, but your mind is rather reckless
 F#m7AB
Well, I guess it just suggests that this is just what happiness is.

Pre-Chorus
 AB
   Hey, what a beautiful mess this is.
 AB
   It's like picking up trash in dresses

Chorus
 EG#m7
Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write
 F#m7AB
 Kind of turn themselves into knives
 EG#m7
And don't mind my nerve you can call it fiction
 F#m7ABF#7
Cause I like being submerged in your contradictions dear
 AF#7A
Cause here we are, here we are

Verse 2
 EG#m7
Although you were biased I love your advice
 F#m7AB
Your comebacks they're quick and probably have to do with your insecurities
 EG#m7
There's no shame in being crazy, depending on how you take these
 F#m7AB
 Words that paraphrasing this relationship we're staging

Pre-Chorus
 AB
   And it's a beautiful mess, yes it is
 AB
   It's like, we are picking up trash in dresses

Chorus
 EG#m7
Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say
 F#m7AB
 Kind of turn themselves into blades
 EG#m7
And the kind and courteous is a life I've heard
 F#m7AB
But it's nice to say that we played in the dirt
 F#7AF#7A
Cause here, here we are, Here we are

Bridge
 EG#m7F#m7AB
 Here we are, here we are, here we are, here we are
 EG#m7F#m7AB
 Here we are, here we are, here we are, we're still here

Pre-Chorus
 AB
   And what a beautiful mess this is
 AB
   It's like taking a guess when the only answer is yes

Chorus
 EG#m7
And through timeless words in priceless pictures
 F#m7AB
We'll fly like birds not of this earth
 EG#m7
And tides they turn and hearts disfigure
 F#m7AB
But that's no concern when we're wounded together
 EG#m7
And we tore our dresses and stained our shirts
 F#m7AB
But it's nice today, oh the wait was so worth it
