Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Cleanse my heart and all that you define 
Then tear me down to see how high I'll climb 
Through your eyes you've showed me how to see
But love has blinded all that I believe 

[Chorus 1]
Oh, this lovely mess 
I'll hold you up high above the rest 
Oh, this lovely mess 
Put your soul out on the line and your heart will find 
That we're flawed by design 
So try your best to enjoy your lovely mess 

[Verse 2]
Closest friends will quickly turn to rivals 
When shattered love is longing for survival 
Let's make our choice on how we wanna do this 
'Cause pride is for the happy or the foolish 

[Chorus 2]
Oh, this lovely mess 
I'll hold you up high above the rest 
Oh, this lovely mess 
Put your soul out on the line and your heart will find 
That we're flawed by design 
So try your best to enjoy your lovely mess 

[Bridge]
Narrow minds will cloud up what is real 
But opened hearts will find a way to heal 
So take these wounds and scars of yours and mine 
And find a way to put the past behind 
The future of our souls are intertwined 

[Chorus 3]
Oh, this lovely mess 
I'll hold you up high above the rest 
Oh, this lovely mess 
Put your soul out on the line and your heart will find 
That we're flawed by design 
So try your best to enjoy your lovely mess 

Oooooh 
Oooooh
