"You and I Undercover" as written by and Jack Antonoff....
Children, Lover
You and I undercover
Do you remember the song?
So if you're gonna leave,
Cut the cord to those you know will love you back
Then come home

I've been ready
Hands and feet all steady
For you to walk away alone

So if you're gonna leave
Cut the cord to those you know will love you back
Oohhh

All I want is a soldier
Hand in hand in you
We are young, growing older
I can't sleep tonight
Can't sleep tonight

You've read nonstop
Kissed on mountaintops
Do you remember those days?
So if you're gonna leave,
Cut the cord to those you know will love you back
Oohhh

All I want is a soldier
Hand in hand in you
We are young, growing older
I can't sleep tonight

Moving all alone
I won't attach now.
Growing like a wave
To anywhere far.
Crashing all alone
I won't attach now.
Pick you up, take you down
Cross our hearts and backbone
(x3)

All I want is a soldier
Hand in hand in you
We are young, growing older
I can't sleep tonight
Oh, I can't sleep tonight

    General Commentits about antonoff's being away from his family and loved ones.... especially his ex- girlfriend "its about confessing that i knew our relationship had run its course, but i still needed to know that someone would be watching over her, after i've gone, that can be hard to admit"
