"Fast Car"

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
Me myself, I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
I've got a plan, it will get us outta here
I been working at the convenience store
I managed to save just a little bit of money
And we don'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 a bottle, that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
I say his body's too young to look like his
My momma went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
Said somebody's gotta take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did

And you got a fast car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision
To leave tonight or live and die this way
Live and die this way

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 arms felt nice wrapped around 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
Be someone, be somewhere

You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout boy
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
Be someone, be somewhere

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 arms felt nice wrapped around 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
You got a fast car
Yes you got a fast car
I've got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bars
See more your friends than you do your kids
I always hoped for better
That maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans, I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving
To be someone, get somewhere

So you got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
You gotta make a decision
To leave tonight or live and die this way
You wanna be someone, and get somewhere

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 arms felt nice wrapped around 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 yeah
