A Beautiful Mess  

I seriously think that Jason Mraz interviewed john and me without us knowing and wrote this song about our relationship.  

It’s borderline creepy how word-for-word this sounds like Jason is talking about me. 

 

Regardless, this is such a beautifully powerful song.  The poetry of it gives me chills.

A Beautiful Mess

 

You've got the best of both worlds

You're the kind of girl who can take down a man,

And lift him back up again

You are strong but you're needy,

Humble but you're greedy

And based on your body language,

And shoddy cursive I've been reading

Your style is quite selective,

Though your mind is rather reckless

Well I guess it just suggests

That this is just what happiness is

 

And what a beautiful mess this is

It's like picking up trash in dresses

 

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write

Kind of turn themselves into knives

And don't mind my nerve you could call it fiction

But I like being submerged in your contradictions dear

'Cause here we are, here we are

 

Although you were biased I love your advice

Your comebacks they're quick

And probably have to do with your insecurities

There's no shame in being crazy,

Depending on how you take these

Words I'm paraphrasing this relationship we're staging

 

And what a beautiful mess this is

It's like picking up trash in dresses

 

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say

Kind of turn themselves into blades

And kind and courteous is a life I've heard

But it's nice to say that we played in the dirt, oh dear

Cause here we are, Here we are

Here we are [x7]

We're still here

What a beautiful mess this is

It's like taking a guess when the only answer is yes

 

Through timeless words, and priceless pictures

We'll fly like birds, out of this earth

And times they turn, and hearts disfigure

But that's no concern when we're wounded together

And we tore our dresses, and stained our shirts

But it's nice today, oh the wait was so worth it.
