Pretty Little Mess
(Rick Springfield/Matt Bissonette)

She Calls
She calls me from this broken town
She blames the boys she runs with
for the drugs and alcohol
She's climbing the walls
She falls apart just as the sun goes down
She says she must get away from it all
Are you man enough?
To come and save me cause the boys play rough

What a mess.  What a pretty little mess you are
Stuck up on the shelf, little Miss self destruction

I remember you
A teenage Mary with an attitude
Good go, Baby let the show begin
But I know it's true
Abandoned girls it seems they all get blue
They spend their lives living on the outside
Looking in
She says Baby won't you save my soul
But only when she's lost control

What a mess, what a pretty little mess you are
Stuck up on the shelf, little Miss self destruction
What a mess, what a beautiful mess you are
Higher than a kite at your midnight confession

You lied to me
I always forgave you
I wish I could save you

What a mess, what a pretty little mess you are
Stuck up on the shelf, little Miss self destruction
What a mess, what a beautiful mess you are
Higher than kite, at your midnight confession

And a walking contradiction
Seeking benediction from anyone.....

According to US

This is a very beautiful song. The lyrics, the music, the vocals, and the piano all blend so well together. The talking in the beginning and later on in the song are confusing somewhat, because I can not make them out. They do, however, add something different to the song, and as we all know by now, that goes without saying in any song written by Rick. I love it! - Amy L
