[Lyrics]

[Verse]

Please fall asleep so I can take pictures of you and hang them in my room
So when I wake up I’ll 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


[Pre Chorus Part 1]

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

[Pre Chorus Part 2]

[Chorus]

And I can hear your dog whistle from my bedroom
And I can see a flashlight cutting up the trees behind my house

[Verse]

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 than 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’ve got and 
than she looks away and says It’s also all I need

[Pre Chorus Part 1]

And I can smell plastic burning I can smell chemicals breaking down
I got your last three emails, the ones where said you were sorting some things out

[Pre Chorus Part 2]

[Chorus]

And he will be able to hear her dog whistle from his bedroom
And I will see a flashlight cutting up the trees behind my house
And I will read the flashing like a Morse code explanation that will mean nothing but 
take all night to figure out

[Verse]

I am sad when I am sad but when I’m happy oh god I’m happy
There’s just no place in between for us to meet
(Please fall asleep so I can take pictures of you and hang them in my room
So when I wake up I’ll 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)

PreChorus 1 should be. Other than that, spot on

e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----7---7---4---7-----------------------------------------|
E|-----5---4---2---4-----------------------------------------|

Gregg4844's correction to the prechorus is right, it should be

Prechorus


e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|-----------------------|
D|-----------------------|
A|----7----7----4----7---|
E|----5----4----2----4---|


Also, the Chorus itself should be


e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|-----------------------|
D|----4--------------7---|
A|----2----2----7----5---|
E|---------0----5--------|


Watch (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3tjU4c4Qgo) for the proper fingering and strumming.
