Jason Mraz’s Beautiful Mess, Live On Earth

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
Based on your body language,
your shouted cursive I’ve been reading
You’re style is quite selective,
though your mind is rather reckless
Well I guess it just suggests
that this is just what happiness is

[Chorus]
Hey, 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 can call it fiction
Cause 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 that paraphrasing this relationship we’re staging

[Chorus]
And it’s a beautiful mess, yes it is
It’s like, we are picking up trash in dresses

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say
Kind of turn themselves into blades
And the kind and courteous is a life I’ve heard
But it’s nice to say that we played in the dirt
Cause here, here we are, Here we are

[x7]
Here we are

We’re still here

[Chorus]
And what a beautiful mess this is
It’s like taking a guess when the only answer is yes

And through timeless words in priceless pictures
We’ll fly like birds not of this earth
And tides 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

“Who’s Thinking About You Now?”

Since it’s an oxymoron to say ‘happy Monday,’ here’s a bit of good music to make it a better one.

Jason Mraz and his awesome band came through Dallas Saturday night and it’s safe to say that was one of the best concerts I’ve been to in a while. I’m not the only one to think so, the show was packed. I don’t think I’ve seen this many fedoras in one place before!

“I feel like starting something. 
I feel like calling off today to be with you. 
Yeah, I believe we all do something that’s familiar like a deja vu, 
Familiar like a deja vu.
Yeah, and I know this one cause I’ve seen your fire and I know we love,
We’re giving it up. 
Do I qualify, qualify, qualify, qualify, qualify? 

I want to be the one to help you move from Mr. Loneliness living in the 
Kitchen of your home. 
I’m hoping you can feel me. 
I’m hoping that I don’t run out of breath, breath, yeah. 

When our two hands are linked together with an ampersand,
It’s my kind of diagram.
When our sore eyes are lined up side by side,
Well, I’m a happy man,
Yes, I’m a happy man.
Yes ma’am, yes ma’am, yes ma’am,
I am thinking about you.”
