Song Lyrics


Song Meaning
Verse 1
Are you spinning in a lie that keeps on telling you
That you're not good enough
When you're looking in the mirror
Do you see someone impossible to love?
Verse 2
Full of fragile broken pieces
We're all rough around the edges
Verse 3
We ain't perfect no
We ain't even close
We got holes in our hearts
We got scars we don't show
But all that baggage we
Keep on dragging around
Anytime we start laying it down
Verse 4
Lay it down at the foot of the cross
Give it to the one who can carry it all
Even at our worst, to him we ain't lost causes
Just beautiful messes
Verse 5
We're all David's we're all Mary's
We've been liars, thieves and everything between
But don't forget God used the misfits just like us
To do the most amazing things
Verse 6
So bring your faults, your flaws, your secrets
And watch him use those broken pieces
Verse 7
'Cause we ain't perfect no
We ain't even close
We got holes in our hearts
We got scars we don't show
But all that baggage we
Keep on dragging around
Anytime we start laying it down
Verse 8
Lay it down at the foot of the cross
Give it to the one who can carry it all
Even at our worst, to him we ain't lost causes
Just beautiful messes
Verse 9
No matter where you are right now
Let thy grace come pouring down
It won't run out, it won't run out
Verse 10
We ain't perfect no
We ain't even close
We got holes in our hearts
We got scars we don't show
But all that baggage we
Keep on dragging around
Anytime we start laying it down
Verse 11
Lay it down at the foot of the cross
Give it to the one who can carry it all
Even at our worst, to him we ain't lose causes
Ooh lay it down at the foot of the cross
Give it to the one who can carry it all
Even at our worst, to him we ain't lost causes
Just beautiful messes
Beautiful messes, yeah
