LYRICS

Messin' Up

There’s a four letter word carved in my family tree

right in the spot I was dreaming of leaves, but leaves were not to be 

It’s enough to pickle your mind ohh

there’s nothing more fickle than time

 

Ooooo I’m just here messing up

Ooooo I’m just here messing up

 

Awoke this morning with an angel sleeping next to me

tattooed and so beautiful, wish I could draw my name in her dreams

Wasn’t looking to fall in love one more time

Maybe I should, maybe I could, if I had half my mind

 

Ooooo I’m just here messing up

Ooooo I’m just here messing up

 

Say I’m not falling in love, one more time

An old candle flickers in the shadows

I know it’s not bright, but at least I can see

 

Ooooo I’m just here messing up

Ooooo I’m just here messing up

 

Love and curses to the sky for all these perfect eyes!

But memory is sweeter to me now

 

I’ve lost all my nerve where blossoms were meant to be

But I just held an angel in my arms, and she fit so gracefully

It’s enough to pickle your mind

and she carved her name in mine

 

Love and curses to the sky for all these perfect eyes!

I thought I had buried this deeply

But she flickers like a flame in the gallows

And here I thought I was swimming in the shallows

Oooooo she is the memory of love

and it feels alright 

Ooooo I’m just here messing up
