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
Tomorrow comes

And though the road is long
I look up to the sky
And in the dark I found, lost hope that I won't...

    Someone She has loved has always been there for her even when she is at her worst that person makes them see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    I think this song is about someone in Jessie J's life that is always by her side, someone who is always there for her even in the worst times (the dark). She is saying that they are her flashlight when she is stuck in the dark.

    When I wrote this song I wanted to do fun and soul song for the movie cars because it needs to be perfect and ballad song more like it. But it’s little bit closer to that music industry. Me and Ben are gonna play the music together. But obviously I remembered that me and Ben are going to do a band of church because we’re starting a new band. But we’re leading capernaum with bible songs and lots of fun songs on there, like flashlight and treasure, and also your the reason from victorious, this is who we are to be pretend to be as people to be who you are, like writing songs together, Virginia tech wanted to be as who we are, me and Ben wanted to be who we are and where we came from. Because we’re starting to write music with different people.

    When I started on the song it came from my head and it seems like a ballad for me and the Jonas brothers I wanted to be like fun and catchy song to make it into a graduation song on my record and my friend Ben decided that I should do something with my best friend Ben but he wanted to film it at the stadium where the cheerleaders are and I can be part of them then me and the girls are going to cheerleading with the Hokies, but it’s so much fun. I wanted to be a cheerleader/singer. Because I love cheering.

    I feel like this could refer to something divine help guide her during her hardship "I'm not afraid when the rain won't stop
    'Cause you light the way". It could also just be a person instead of a divine being.

    I think that this song is about how on the surface, and even to herself, she acknowledges that her life is good "it's a sweet life", but even so, this love of hers (whoever she's singing the song to) brings light into her life. No matter what else is going on, they bring that light.

    I think this song could mean that even though you have lost someone they will always be your flashlight...

    She's afriad of loosing someone special. She uses the light to guide herself threw things. She loves someone special. Without the light where would she go?

    I feel as in this song she says this individual she speaks of helps her even though they may be in the dark they still guide her.

    Someone so close to her has helped her through everything all the tough times in life and given her hope.
