"Mess of Me" as written by and Colin Meloy....
Take it down while you lie
It's been so long since I saw you there
And I will no longer be your whipping boy
It's taken me a long time
And it's taken me a long time

And you should know how the heart
Is made of the sum of the lover's parts
But me, I cannot allow this thing to disappear
Or lose it in the sunshine
Or lose it in the sunlight

And I came to tell you what I told you Now you know this precious burden
On our shoulders, let it go
And it took a long time
For picking up what we should have left behind
And that's bound to make a mess of me

So would you call or would you write?
Can't be harder than it is tonight
And I'm staring blankly at this paper moon,
Shining at my slack jaw
And it's shining at my slack jaw

So send for me to your side
There's no stronger love than our love tonight
And I wear my heart upon my tennis shoes,
Laces always untied
And i'm standing on the other side
