Verse 1
You?ve got the [E]best of both worlds
[G#m7] You?re the kind of girl who can [F#m7]take down a man
And [A]lift him back u[B]p again
You are [E]strong, but you?re needy, [G#m7]humble but you?re greedy
And [F#m7]based on your body language and shouted c[A]ursive I?ve been re[B]ading
Your [E]style is quite selective, but your [G#m7]mind is rather reckless
Well, I [F#m7]guess it just suggests that this is [A]just what [B]happiness is.
Pre-Chorus
[A] Hey, what a beautiful mess[B] this is.
[A] It?s like picking up trash in d[B]resses
Chorus
Well it [E]kind of hurts when the [G#m7]kind of words you write
[F#m7]Kind of turn thems[A]elves into [B]knives
And don't[E] mind my nerve you can[G#m7] call it fiction
Cause I [F#m7]like being submerged in your con[A]tradicti[B]ons d[F#7]ear
Cause h[A]ere we a[F#7]re, h[A]ere we are

Verse 2
Alth[E]ough you were biased I l[G#m7]ove your advice
Your [F#m7]comebacks they?re quick and probably have to [A]do with your insec[B]urities
There?s no s[E]hame in being crazy, [G#m7]depending on how you take these
[F#m7]Words that paraphrasing this relationsh[A]ip we?re s[B]taging
Pre-Chorus
[A] And it?s a beautiful mess[B], yes it is
[A] It?s like, we are picking up trash in [B]dresses
Chorus
Well it [E]kind of hurts when the [G#m7]kind of words you say
[F#m7]Kind of turn thems[A]elves into b[B]lades
And the [E]kind and courteous is a [G#m7]life I?ve heard
But it?s [F#m7]nice to say that we [A]played in the [B]dirt
Cause[F#7] here, [A]here we [F#7]are, Here we a[A]re
Bridge
[E]Here we are, [G#m7]here we are, [F#m7]here we are, [A]here we [B]are
[E]Here we are, [G#m7]here we are, [F#m7]here we are, [A]we?re still [B]here
Pre-Chorus
[A] And what a beautiful mess [B]this is
[A] It?s like taking a guess when the [B]only answer is yes
Chorus
And through [E]timeless words in [G#m7]priceless pictures
We?ll [F#m7]fly like birds [A]not of thi[B]s earth
And [E]tides they turn and [G#m7]hearts disfigure
But that?s[F#m7] no concern when we?re [A]wounded toge[B]ther
And we [E]tore our dresses and [G#m7]stained our shirts
But it?s [F#m7]nice today, oh the [A]wait was so [B]worth it
