"Beautiful Mess" as written by Desmond Child, Lauren Christy, Jonathan L. Vella and Shane Ernest Swayney....
I feel crazy while you seem sane
I saw lightening but you just see rain
I hear music that's my heart being played

In your shadow I pray
It's a beautiful mess you made
You had your fun and games
I love you
To you that means so much less
You are like a tear in my brand new dress
It's a beautiful mess

The rush remains as I watch you go
Your kiss still lingers but it's killing me slow
As I shiver
In this space where I lay

In your shadow I pray
It's a beautiful mess you made
You had your fun and games
I love you
To you that means so much less
You are like a tear in my brand new dress
It's a beautiful mess

It was an Innocent mistake to waste my time on you
When they tell you not to go there
You don't care

In your shadow I pray
It's a beautiful mess you made
You had your fun and games
I love you
To you that means so much less
You are like a tear in my brand new dress
And now I'm left with this beautiful mess

    Song MeaningI think it’s pretty obvious that this song is alluding to the bittersweet regret of a first sexual encounter. Just listen to the lyrics. "I feel crazy while you seem sane" is saying how this was a big thing for the girl, but it didn't mean much to the guy. "You had your fun and games" the guy got what he wanted and probably won't talk to the girl anymore. "It was an innocent mistake to waste my time on you When they tell you not to go there, don't care, and you do" - everyone tells teens that they should wait to have sex, but most of them don't listen. This is a very mature song that is true to life for a lot of young people today. It’s very good, very honest music and I wish there was more like it out there.
