Moving to China / Will You Come With Me

from Kerrigan-Lowdermilk LIVE Extras

BRIAN
I'm taking my sister and I'm moving to China.
Get the hell out of here.
We'll buy a flat in Beijing,
And we'll give you a ring sometime…
Maybe next year.

We'll hop in my car,
Drive away down the turnpike,
Headin’ out to the coast
Figure two hours wait,
Then we'll jump on a freight and ride,
Two days at most.

It's not about freedom.
It's not about puberty I swear,
Not freedom.
It's about the wind blowing through our hair.
A boy and his sister
Racing off to face the sun,
A boy and his sister
Racing off to face the world together,
As they've always done. 

I'm taking my sister and I'm moving to China.
Maybe next week.

KAIT
Early morning Mother’s Day
You wake me up, the sun’s still down
You blacken the toast ‘til it looks hell
You drop shells in the scrambled eggs

Will you come with me when I go back?
We can build a fort out of pillows and trust
There is nothing here, there was so much there.
Will you come with me? Would that be enough?

RACHEL: Do we sleep on the boat?
BRIAN: Yes.
RACHEL: Will they shoot us for chewing gum?
BRIAN: No. That’s Singapore.
RACHEL: But will I be...
BRIAN: Not if you keep your hands to yourself.
RACHEL: But what about...
BRIAN: Yes, Rachel, I’m sure there’s pizza in China.

KAIT
One day I don’t drop you off at school
You’d never played hooky before, so you said.
We drive down the coast to Baltimore
You prop your feet up on the dashboard.

Will you come with me when I go back?
We can build a fort out of pillows and trust
There is nothing here, there was so much there.
Will you come with me? Would that be enough?

BRIAN
Will you come with me? Would that be enough?

KAIT
Will you come with me? Would that

KAIT AND BRIAN
Be enough?

KAIT AND BRIAN
Days change, time flies.
You’re stalling, I’m falling behind.
Days change, time flies.
We’re falling, we’re falling.
By, and by, and by, and by, and by.

BRIAN
I’m taking my sister and I’m moving to China
Get the hell out of here
We’ll buy a flat in Beijing
And we’ll give you a ring sometime
Next week, next year

KAIT
Will you come with me when I go back?
If I bring these stories, will you bring the tea?
The fort is built.
Oh, will you come with me?
Will you come with me? Will you? 

KAIT AND BRIAN
Will you come with me when I go back?
Prop your feet on the dashboard like you used to then.
There is nothing here, there is so much there.

BRIAN
Will you come with me? Would that be enough?

KAIT
To China. 

BRIAN
Will you come with me? Would that be enough? 

KAIT AND BRIAN
Will you come with me? Would you let that be enough?
I’m taking my sister and I’m moving to China.
I’m taking my sister and I’m moving to China.
Maybe next week.
Don’t forget your iPod, toothbrush...  Chopsticks.
