No Flashlight

My favorite Mount Eerie song. Just another one of those ones that no words can say

out of tempo, one of those perfect songs; http://www.youtube.com/watch?
39The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground & Nico

and him spent new years together. it was my first new years outside of calgary. we
thought we were just gonna like play it real chill and have some champagne or
whatever and just bro out. on our way to his brothers we stopped at my dealer of
the times house just to say happy new years. he was getting all teary eyed and
writting his new years resolutions so it was good timing. He freaked out and was so
happy to see us that he invited us in, gave us each some blow, a couple caps of m,
and a giant blunt. then we left and got our champagne and met his bro for dinner.
on our way back to our house bro did his slick gay dude thing where hes really good
at talking to cute girls cuz hes not interested in them and stopped and talked to these
cute girls on some stairs outside an apartment. they invited us to a party so we
went. i remember the room with music was some girls room with a floor level bed
and there were all these pretty ladies dancin on the bed and shit. someone
magically played this song right before new years, and of course it perfectly went
into the wonderful breakdown at the end right at the end of the countdown while we
are all dancing and sabering champagne and havin a friggin gay ol time. and then i
met this lovely older girl from another town who was a massage therapist and
brought her home. nothing like a morning-after-great-sex professional massage.
