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

Pre-Chorus
A                           B
  Hey, what a beautiful mess this is.
A                                B
  Itís like picking up trash in dresses

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

Verse 2
    E                       G#m7
Although you were biased I love your advice
     F#m7                                         A                 B
Your comebacks theyíre quick and probably have to do with your insecurities
            E                    G#m7
Thereís no shame in being crazy, depending on how you take these
F#m7                                   A         B
Words that paraphrasing this relationship weíre staging

Pre-Chorus
A                          B
  And itís a beautiful mess, yes it is
A                                       B
  Itís like, we are picking up trash in dresses

Chorus
        E                      G#m7
Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say
F#m7              A           B
Kind of turn themselves into blades
        E                       G#m7
And the kind and courteous is a life Iíve heard
         F#m7                A             B
But itís nice to say that we played in the dirt
     F#7    A       F#7           A
Cause here, here we are, Here we are

Bridge
E            G#m7         F#m7         A       B
Here we are, here we are, here we are, here we are
E            G#m7         F#m7         A           B
Here we are, here we are, here we are, weíre still here

Pre-Chorus
A                           B
  And what a beautiful mess this is
A                                   B
  Itís like taking a guess when the only answer is yes

Chorus
            E                 G#m7
And through timeless words in priceless pictures
      F#m7           A         B
Weíll fly like birds not of this earth
    E                   G#m7
And tides they turn and hearts disfigure
          F#m7                   A           B
But thatís no concern when weíre wounded together
       E                    G#m7
And we tore our dresses and stained our shirts
         F#m7               A           B
But itís nice today, oh the wait was so worth it
