I'm so tired of this here town
Don't know why I'm hanging around
I wanna travel, see the world
And find a boy that wants to find that kind of girl

And we would sail uncharted waters
And we would sleep under the stars
And we would bask in our good fortune
We'd have no means but we would have each other's arms

So what do you say? Can I count you in?
My bags are packed, you just say when
And we can go where no one's ever been
And you can stay, here beneath my skin

Now we all fight to keep our freedom
And we get scared each time we lose
But I admit that in my hard won independence
You know I wish that there were fights I didn't choose

So here I stand without my armor
And I am waving my white flag
And I am asking you for mercy
So if I fight I hope that you will understand

What do you say? Can I count you in?
My bags are packed, you just say when
And you can go where no one's ever been
Yeah you can stay here beneath my skin

What do you say? Can I count you in?
My bags are packed, just tell me when
And you'll be loved like no one's ever been
You can stay here beneath my skin

Yeah you'll be loved like no one's ever been
Yeah you can stay here beneath my skin
