Lyrics


Messy

Cigarettes in the ashtray Sitting on the porch Two empty bottles of Cabernet From the night before A couple of texts I wish I hadn't sent But at the time Had a good buzz, and it felt innocent Moving on is messy It ain't always gonna be a clean break, and it's okay Whatever it takes these days 'Cause heartbreak isn't sexy And there ain't no wearing it well, going through hell So give yourself some grace Moving on is messy Little black dress in the bathroom From last Friday night Thought I was ready, it was too soon God, I wasn't right Mascara stains on pillowcases Can't stop my mind From going back to broken places Moving on is messy It ain't always gonna be a clean break, and it's okay Whatever it takes these days 'Cause heartbreak isn't sexy And there ain't no wearing it well, going through hell So give yourself some grace Moving on is messy Everything's gonna be fine Everybody ain't okay sometimes You're fine 'til you're falling apart Over it, back to the start It ain't on your mind 'til you're replaying every memory Moving on is messy It ain't always gonna be a clean break, and it's okay Whatever it takes these days 'Cause heartbreak isn't sexy And there ain't no wearing it well, going through hell So give yourself some grace Moving on is messy (everything's gonna be fine) Moving on is messy (everybody ain't okay sometimes) Moving on is messy (everything's gonna be fine) Oh, it's messy
