The Front Bottoms – Flashlight lyrics

Please fall asleep so I can take pictures of you and hang them in my room
So when I'll wake up I'll be like "Yeah, everything's all right"
You are still here, you are still happy.
You are still smiling and laughing.
You are still the only thing and everything I need in my life
And it goes in, in, out through the mouth
Breathing exercises I will never figure out
So I am running in circles or
Walking in circles or
Crawling in circles or
Lying on the ground.

And I
Can hear your dog whistle from my bedroom.
Yeah, yeah
And I
Can see a flashlight cuttin'
Up the trees behind my house.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.

She says a lot of the kids we graduated with are now homeless
Which puts them in mad shady situations with mad shady people
If not everyday, then on an every other day basis
And she's probably with a few of them right now
And they are probably just drinking and talking about
How she misses gettin' fucked up and hangin' around
And he says "Hey, you're good at that" and she says "Thanks. It's kind of
All I got, " and then she looks away and says, "It's also all I need"
And I can smell plastic burning,
I can smell chemicals breaking down
I got your last three emails,
The ones where you said,
"I was sorting some things out"

And he will be able to hear her dog whistle from his bedroom
Yeah yeah.
And I
Can see a flashlight cuttin'
Up the trees behind my house.
Yeah yeah.
And I will read the flashing
Like a Morse code explanation
Though it'll mean nothing
But take all night to figure out, out, out

I am sad, I am sad. And I am happy, oh God, I'm happy
(Please fall asleep so I can take pictures of you and hang them in my room)
There's just no place in between for us to meet
(So when I'll wake up I'll be like yeah everything's all right.)
But I am sad, I am sad, but when I am happy, oh God, I'm happy
(You are still here, you are still happy. You are still smiling and
Laughing)
There's just no place in between for us to meet
(You are still the only thing and everything I need in my life.)
When I am sad, oh God, I'm sad, but when I'm happy, I am happy
(Please fall asleep so I can take pictures of you and hang them in my room)
And there's just no place in between for us to meet
(So when I'll wake up I'll be like, "Yeah, everything's all right")
When I am sad, oh God, I'm sad, but when I'm happy, I am happy
(You are still here, you are still happy. You are still smiling and
Laughing.)
And there's just no place in between for us to meet
