A Beautiful Mess Lyrics
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 shotty cursive I've been...
1TOP RATED#1 top rated interpretation:
I believe he's reading a letter and writing one in return, to a woman he's been in a rocky relationship with for some time.
He speaks about characteristics I think one could only gather from handwriting, the most obvious being the "Shoddy cursive," he'd been reading. He's basing his opinion of her on whatever words were printed in shoddy cursive. The next hint is from the second verse where he talks of, "These words I'm paraphrasing," something you generally do while reading. My guess is, she can be a confusing and sometimes indecisive partner.
Her contradictions drive him insane and, yet, he loves her for it. "The kind and courteous is a life I've heard, but it's nice to say that we've played in the dirt." Here, he's writing to tell her that their relationship might have been troubled, but he wouldn't change a thing, or have it any other way.
"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 way, it was so worth it."
He finishes the letter by telling her it might have been hard, but the road they took was the right one; the only one that would've led to success.
Beautifully written song.

He's is speaking of the relationship between the love letters he's reading and the woman they were written for. As the song progresses he (or the author of the letters) realizes what an amazing thing it is to have a life long relationship, the struggles, the fights,the wonderful times spent laughing...all amount to the beautiful mess. In the end despite all the hardships, he we wouldn't want to change a thing. Because this mess was perfection.

I think that he simply is saying that he loves her and though she has flaws they are eaqully important and she is split she has 'the best of both worlds'and the irony and contrast between the idea 'beautiful' and 'mess' contrast, in the same way the similie he uses contrasts as 'trash' and 'dresses' contrasts.
This song is basically saying that this girl is perfectly imperfect. She has so many great things about her, but she is equally on the bad side. The speaker is saying that he loves her for everything she is and that she and the situation they're in is a "Beautiful Mess." And by the end of the song, he's saying they've been through so much, but it doesn't matter because "we're still here."
