Maria's Beautiful Mess Lyrics
Artist: Ellis Paul
She fell to the mattress
with the grace of an actress
Youâ‚¬â„¢re falling like a thief from a roof.
Sheâ‚¬â„¢s asking for proof , "Are you staying?"
Outside you hear mission bells.
Welcome to Mariaâ‚¬â„¢s beautiful mess,
In a cluttered apartment on the West Side.
She pulls the blinds while,
You watch how her dress falls round her .
And the world slows, a clock shows
A wrinkle in the flow of time
And she steps close, her eyes glow,
Lips pop open like a bottle of wine
And she loves like itâ‚¬â„¢s thirst
Like sheâ‚¬â„¢s never been hurt,
She dances just like nobodyâ‚¬â„¢s watching.
Is this love? Is this cursed?
It feels like the first time falling
Nobodyâ‚¬â„¢s watching, Nobodyâ‚¬â„¢s watching,
Nobodyâ‚¬â„¢s watching, watching
Now she puts on some music,
She asks you to choose it
You sang her back a Gershwin line.
Now Ella is singing holy, soulfully
Bringing up better times
And beneath the tunes,
Sheâ‚¬â„¢s smiling on an unmade bed
She says, "Whatâ‚¬â„¢s in the middle that scares you,
Does it dare you
To take a moment and just slow down?"
Pull the curtains all down
On the prince or a clown,
Sheâ‚¬â„¢s smiling like the Mona Lisa.
You could conquer this town.
If your feet touched the ground,
But youâ‚¬â„¢re falling boy
I know, I see you
I see you, I see, I see,
I see you
