lyrics

You can tell she’s running but not from what
What she gives you to go on is all you’ve got
She keeps her cards close to the vest

Bare feet on the dash she lights up a smoke
Says thanks for the ride do you want a toke
Don’t care where we’re headed just as long as it’s West

Baby's beautiful, baby's beautiful, baby's a beautiful mess

Daddy’s home looked perfect from the outside
Now she’d rather live in a double wide
Than to chase after the biggest and the best

She say’s she knows how people go insane
It’s from doing the same thing over and over again
Can’t learn to fly lest you leave the nest

You know you're going the wrong way
But you can't slow down
You can try to love her
But she won't stick around
Baby's beautiful, baby's beautiful, baby's a beautiful mess

Something to eat a little cash
Someone to hold and a place to crash
If less is more than more is less

Any man in the room she can have her pick
But she always goes home with the one who’s sick
She tries to fix ‘em like it’s some kind of test

Baby's beautiful, baby's beautiful, baby's a beautiful mess

Now she’s in the French quarter in an old chateau
At the end of the hall where the lights are low
With the moonlight through the window and tears on her dress

Everyone has a song to sing
Her’s is about having a broken wing
And not a single thing to confess

Baby's beautiful, baby's beautiful, baby's a beautiful mess
