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
