[Verse 1:]
What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You've got my head spinning, no kidding, I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind
I'm on your magical mystery ride
And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright

[Pre-Chorus:]
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

[Verse 2:]
How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you're crying you're beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood
You're my downfall, you're my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can't stop singing, it's ringing, in my head for you

[Pre-Chorus:]
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

[Bridge:]
Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we're both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it's hard

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

 

Meanings: 

Smart mouth: 

Usually being a smart mouth is seen as something negative because it means that you are being rude in the way that you are saying something, however in the song he means it in a good way, and is saying that she is smart. 

Drawing me in: 

Pulling me towards you, making me come nearer 

I can't pin you down:

Can not keep her the same, she is too spontaneous to remain the same

Perfect imperfections:

He is telling her that even though she is not perfect it is her faults that make her perfect

You're my end and my beginning:

He is her everything, and nothing can come between them

Even when I lose I'm winning:

Losing is not losing because when he loses she wins. When she wins she becomes happy and therefore he becomes happy

The world is beating you down:

He will be there even when things are bad and nothing is going right

Muse:

In Greek Mythology they are the godesses of inspiration. He is saying here that she is his inspiration.
