Fast Car Lyrics

Fast Car – Tracy Chapman

You got a fast car, I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal, maybe together we can get somewhere

Any place is better, starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something but me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car, I got a plan to get us out of here
Been working at the convenience store, managed to save just a little bit of money
Won’t have to drive too far, just cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs, finally see what it means to be living

See my old man’s got a problem, he lives with the bottle that’s the way it is
He says his body’s too old for working, his body’s too young to look like his
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 got a fast car, is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision, we leave tonight or live and die this way

So I remember when we were driving, driving in your car
Speed so fast it felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us and your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
And I, I had a feeling that I belonged
And I, I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car, we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain’t got a job and I work in the 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 I remember when we were driving, driving in your car
Speed so fast It felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us and your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
And I, I had a feeling that I belonged
And I, I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car, I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking till late at the bar, see more of your friends than you do your kids
I’d always hoped for better but maybe together you and me’d find it
If you got no plans and ain’t going nowhere, take your fast car and keep on driving

So I remember when we were driving, driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us and your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
And I, I had a feeling that I belonged
And I, I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car but is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision, you leave tonight or live and die this way
