40 comments

Apologies to all Jason Mraz fans if I've butchered this song but really like it so much that i have to sing it:)
This was Take number 10. E
Youve got the best of both worlds
G#m7 F#m7 Youre 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 youre needy, humble but youre greedy F#m7 A B
And based on your body language and shouted cursive Ive 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
Its 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 E*
Cause here we are, here we are

[Interlude]
E* G#m7 F#m7 A B

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

[Pre-Chorus]
A B
And its a beautiful mess, yes it is
A B
Its 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 Ive heard F#m7 A B
But its nice to say that we played in the dirt F#7 A F#7 A
Cause here, here we are, Here we are

[Verse]
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, were still here

[Pre-Chorus]
A B
And what a beautiful mess this is
A B
Its 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
Well fly like birds not of this earth E G#m7
And tides they turn and hearts disfigure F#m7 A B
But thats no concern when were wounded together E G#m7
And we tore our dresses and stained our shirts F#m7 A B
But its nice today, oh the wait was so worth it

[Outro]
E G#m7 F#m7 A B
