Hailee Steinfeld: Flashlight

I first heard Flashlight on the set of Pitch Perfect 2 in Baton Rouge, LA. Sia, and Sam Smith are two of my favorite song-writers and vocalists. With the help of my good friend, I was able to make a stripped down acoustic version of the song, and wanted to share it with you. The track has the pipes of Jessie J on the official soundtrack for the film (which seems like a missed opportunity) and was written by Sia, Christian Guzman, Jason Moore and Sam Smith.

Hailee Steinfeld: Flashlight Lyrics:
When tomorrow comes
I’ll be on my own
Feeling frightened of
The things that I don’t know
When tomorrow comes
Tomorrow comes
When tomorrow comes

And though the road is long
I look up to the sky
And in the dark I found,
I lost hope that I won’t fly
And I sing along, I sing along
And I sing along

I got all I need when I got you and I
I look around me, and see a sweet life
I’m stuck in the dark but you’re my flashlight
You’re getting me, getting me through the night
Can’t stop my heart when you’re shinin’ in my eyes
Can’t lie, it’s a sweet life
I’m stuck in the dark but you’re my flashlight
You’re getting me, getting me through the night

I see the shadows long beneath the mountain top
And I’m not afraid when the rain won’t stop
‘Cause you light the way
You light the way, you light the way

I got all I need when I got you and I
I look around me, and see a sweet life
I’m stuck in the dark but you’re my flashlight
You’re getting me, getting me through the night
Can’t stop my heart when you’re shinin’ in my eyes
I can’t lie, it’s a sweet life
I’m stuck in the dark but you’re my flashlight
You’re getting me, getting me through the night

‘Cause you’re my flashlight
You’re my flashlight, You’re my flashlight
