Lyrics

Please fall asleep so I can take pictures of you
And hang them in my room
So, when I wake up, be like,
'Yea, everything's alright'
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
'Til I am running in circles,
(I am) Or, walking in circles
(I am) Or, crawling in circles

(I) Or, lying on the ground
And I can hear your dog whistle
From my bedroom
Yea, yea
(I can see a flashlight) And I can see a flashlight cutting
Up the trees behind my house
Yea, yea,
Yea, yea, yea
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 getting fucked up and hanging 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 e-mails, the ones where you said,
"I was sorting some things out."
And he will be able to hear her dog whistle
From his bedroom
Yea, yea
(I can see a flashlight) And I can see a flashlight cutting
Up the trees behind my house
Yea, yea
And I will read the flashing like a morse code explanation
That will mean nothing but take all night to figure out
Out, out
(Please fall asleep so I can take pictures) When I am sad, I am sad
(Of you and hang them in my room) But when I am happy, oh, God, I'm happy
(So, when I wake up, be like, 'Yea, everything's alright') And there's just no place in between for us to meet
(You are still here, you are still happy) When I am sad, I am sad,
(You are still smiling and laughing) But when I am happy, oh, God, I'm happy
(You are still the only thing and everything I need in my life) And there's just no place in between for us to meet
(Please fall asleep so I can take pictures of you) When I am sad, oh, God I'm sad
(And hang them in my room) But when I'm happy, I am happy
(So, when I wake up, be like, 'Yea, everything's alright) And there's just no place in between for us to meet
(You are still here, you are still happy) When I am sad, oh, God I'm sad
(You are still smiling and laughing) But when I'm happy, I am happy
(You are still the only thing and everything I need in my life) And there's just no place in between for us to meet
(Sad)
