If I told you that I lie sometimes
If I told you that I run away
If I told you who I was before
Would you follow me?

If I told you that sneak sometimes
If I told you that I love too much
If I showed you the other side
Would you follow me?

'Cause I'm shedding my skin
So you can see my face
I need you to know who I am
I'm ready to go
Where I've never been
Will you stay around and follow me?

If I told you the Earth was square
If I told you water wasn't wet
If I told you life was fair
Would you follow me?

Oh, 'cause I'm shedding my skin
So you can see my face
I need you to know who I am
I'm ready to go
Where I've never been
Will you stay around and follow me?

To the furthest moon and back
Jupiter and Mars and all that
To the middle of the galaxy
On the smallest raft
I don't know if I can be sure
Of anything I've believed before
But will you follow me?

'Cause I'm shedding my skin
So you can see my face
I need you to know who I am
I'm ready to go
Where I've never been
Will you stay around and follow me?

To the furthest moon and back
Jupiter and Mars and all that

    General Commentto me it's about discovery, growing and wanting to come out to those you love, cause that's where I am in my life now.
