Take me to New York City.
I want to be able to walk down the street a thousand times,
and always see a different face.
I want to be able to catch a cab,
and never have the same driver.
I want to be able to look outside,
and never be afraid of the dark.

Take me to L.A.
I want to see someone famous,
not just on a movie screen.
I want to be at the beach,
all day.
I want to have natural tanned skin.
I want to go to Starbucks everyday,
drink my tea, and be on my Mac.

Take me to Boston.
I want to have colleges all around me.
I want to have cold weather.
I want to have a chance to start a new life.
I want to walk down the road,
with Augustana playing out of my headphones,
telling me he'll come to Boston too.

Take me to Las Vegas.
I want to see all the lights.
I want to lose it all gambling,
then win it all back with money I found on the street.
I want to have my mind freaked.
I want to get married, to a stranger,
by the "King."

Take me somewhere,
anywhere, but here.
I need out of here.
I want to be able to live and survive on my own.
I want to start over,
a clean slate.
I want to talk to new people.
I want to meet someone new,
shake their hand and say;
"Hi, my name is Jessica," and them not judge me on what they've heard.
I want to succeed.

So please, where ever you are going,
take me with you.
