In Beautiful Disarray

I loved you once
I lost you twice.
You kissed me once
And now we pay the price.

You hugged me goodbye
I smiled but I wanted to cry,
Didn't want you to leave me
Again.

(chorus)
But normal lives are for normal people,
And normal people live boring lives.
So, let's enjoy the mess we made,
Ignore the shade,
Live every day in the sun.
We're good at faking smiles,
So take my hand and we'll run for miles.
Let's pretend that everything's okay.
...At least for today.
We're in a beautiful disarray.

We laugh about our stupid mistakes,
We cry about what could've been.
We live in the past.
We wish for more, we hope for less.
We put our hearts to the test.
Everyday.

(chorus)
But normal lives are for normal people,
And normal people live boring lives.
So, let's enjoy the mess we made,
Ignore the shade,
Live every day in the sun.
We're good at faking smiles,
So take my hand and we'll run for miles.
Let's pretend that everything's okay.
...At least for today.
At least for today.
We're in a beautiful disarray.

We're beautiful, beautiful people.
Just tryin' to make it through the day,
Tryin' to make it out okay.
We're beautiful, beautiful people.
Beautiful, beautiful people.
