lyrics

goodnight darling, goodnight
goodnight darling, sleep tight
sweet dreams, sweet dreams, sweet dreams

your breath smells like rotten cherries
your breath smells like rotten cherries
i didn't know, i was only a baby
i didn't remember, but it's coming back lately

you open the door in slow-mo
click it shut just like a whisper
grab the wall, traverse the hall
i stare through stair rails, little whimpers

mom and dad are gonna fight tonight
been a long time since i slept right
mom and dad are gonna fight tonight
they're monsters under my bed
where's my nightlight?

your breath smells like rotten cherries
your breath smells like rotten cherries
i didn't know, i was only a baby
i didn't remember, but it's coming back lately

"hey kids, clean your rooms, i promise
when i get back we'll make it Christmas"
brother and i, we did it all
you grab the wall, traverse the hall

in my youth and little rages
my mouth ran for many pages
couldn't stop my tongue from swearing
and all you say is "what are you wearing?"

"whatever the hell i fucking want
did you notice that i'm growing?"
you're a broken record, can't talk
as i watch your eyelids lowering

mom and dad are gonna fight tonight
been a long time since i slept right
mom and dad are gonna fight tonight
they're monsters under my bed
where's my nightlight?

your breath smells like rotten cherries
your breath smells like rotten cherries
your breath smells like rotten cherries
your breath smells like rotten cherries
i didn't know, i was only a baby
i didn't remember, but it's coming back lately

so goodnight darling, goodnight
goodnight darling, sleep tight
sweet dreams, sweet dreams, sweet dreams
