Verse 1
              E  
   You've got the best of both worlds
Abm                                Gbm
   You're the kind of girl who can take down a man,
       A             B
   And lift him back up again
           E
   You are strong but you're needy,
   Abm
   Humble but you're greedy
   Gbm
   Based on your body language,
                A                 B
   Your shouted cursive I've been reading
          E
   You're style is quite selective,
               Abm
   Though your mind is rather reckless
           Gbm
   Well I guess it just suggests,
                A              B
   That this is just what happiness is


Bridge
 A                            B
   Hey, what a beautiful mess this is
 A                               B 
   It's like picking up trash in dresses


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


Verse 2
     E                         Abm
   Although you were biased, I love your advice
        Gbm
   Your comebacks they're quick
                        A              B
   And probably have to do with your insecurities
              E
   There's no shame in being crazy,
     Abm
   Depending on how you take these
   Gbm                            A                B
   Words they're paraphrasing this relationship we're staging


Bridge
 A                             B
   Hey, what a beautiful mess, yes it is
 A                                      B 
   It's like we 're picking up trash in dresses


Chorus
           E                      Abm
   Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say
   Gbm              A           B
   Kind of turn themselves into blades
           E                       Abm
   And the kind and courteous is a life I've heard
            Gbm                 A             B
   But it's nice to say that we played in the dirt
         A             Gb           A       E
   Cause here, here we are, Here we are
   E            Ab           Gb           A       B
   Here we are, here we are, here we are, here we are, 
   E            Ab           Gb           A           B
   Here we are, here we are, here we are, we're still here


Bridge
 A                           B
   And what a beautiful mess this is
 A                                   B 
   It's like taking a guess when the only answer is yes


Chorus 
               E                    Abm
   And through timeless words and priceless pictures
         Gbm            A      B 
   We'll fly like birds not of this earth
       E                Abm
   And tides they turn, hearts disfigure
              Gbm                   A         B
   But that's no concern when we're wounded together.
          E                     Abm
   And we tore our dresses, and stained our shirts
            Gbm                 A           B
   But it's nice today, all the wait was so worth it.
