Fast Car

Fast car

Tracy Chapman

You’ve got a fast car, i want a ticket to anywhere
maybe we can make a deal
maybe together we can get somewhere
any place is better
starting from zero we’ve got nothing to lose
maybe we’ll make something
be me myself i’ve got nothing to prove
you’ve got a fast car
and i’ve got a plan to get us out of here
i’ve been working at a convenience store
managed to save just a little bit of money
we won’t have to drive too far,
just cross the border and into the city
you and i can both get jobs
and finally see what it means to be living.
you see my old man’s got a problem
he lives with the bottle, that’s the way it is
he says his body is to old for working
his body is too young to look like this
my mama went off and left him
she wanted more from life than he could give
i said somebody’s got to take care of him
so i quit school and that’s what i did.
you’ve got a fast car
but is it fast enough so we can fly away?
we have got to make a decision
we leave tonight or live and die this way
so remember when we were driving,driving in your car
the speed so fast feel like i was drunk
city lights lay out before us
and your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
i had the feeling that i belonged
i had a feeling i could be someone, be someone, be someone
you’ve got a a fast car
and we go cruising entertain ourselves,
you still ain’t got a job
now i work in a market as a checkout girl
i know things will get better
you’ll find work and i’ll get promoted
we’ll move out of the shelter
buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs
so Remember when…..etc
you’ve got a fast car
and i’ve got a job that pays all our bills
you stay out drinking late at the bar see more of your friends that you do
of your kids
i’d always hoped for better
thought maybe together you and me would find it
i’ve got no plans and i aint going nowhere
so take your fast car and keep on driving
I remember when…etc
