Screwed up and Beautiful - Better Than Ezra

I like you best when you wake up
The morning sunlight blowing in your hair
You went to bed in your makeup
With the black tear rolled down
And it dried in a question mark

And do you really wanna be
On the cover of a magazine?
A picture-perfect life in a perfect world
Well, maybe, you can get a house, a new car
Between you and me, I've learned that you are
Screwed up, screwed up and beautiful

You've got a scar where your heart broke
And a worn out copy of Harold and Maude
You spent a month down in Texas
For an Eldorado you jacked from a parking lot

And do you really wanna see
What a hell another life can be
You'd smile and wash the dishes, I'd watch TV
Well, maybe I would get a raise and a star
Between you and me, I'm glad that you are
Screwed up, screwed up and beautiful

Wake up in the middle of the night
Break up in the middle of a fight
You've got to come on my whole life
Stay up and talk until dawn
Late up and nothing is on
Take your breakfast, I go on and cry

And do you really wanna be
On the cover of a magazine?
A picture-perfect life in a perfect world
Well, maybe, you can get a house and two cars
Between you an me, I'm glad that you are
Screwed up, screwed up, yeah
Screwed up, screwed up and beautiful

Yeah, oh, alright
Yeah, gimme some of that screwed up love, tonight
Yeah, oh, alright
Yeah, gimme some of that screwed up love, tonight
