Fast Car Lyrics - Tracy Chapman

Review The Song (36)



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

sponsored links
See my old man’s got a problem
He live 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

I just love fast car by my favourite Tracy. Her songs teaches me lots of things including some skills of playing the guitar. Some of her songs i love are, open arms, be and be not afraid, change, o holy night, stand by me, subcity, cold feet, etc.

Pure Nostalgia | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/8/12

I miss the days as a small boy listening to this song. Not quite understanding the words but just the way it sounded takes me back to the time of being with my mother and late grandmother. Beautiful Feeling nonetheless

childhood memories | Reviewer: Jennifer | 12/15/09

Wow, I remember listening to this song while driving with my dad when my age wasent even close to double digits. :) I liked it so much he went and bought the cassette. Every time after that, we listened to that one song...Fast Car. Been in love with it ever since.

Amazing =O | Reviewer: Katt | 10/14/09

tracy makes me tick | Reviewer: briee | 9/12/08

i have never had another artist who can speak directly to me thru music but tracy has been the one who pulls all my strings. fast cars is a song that pulls me back to my first year in college when things were crazy. she is one lady who nursed me thru most of my down lows and she constantly inspires me to sing. i am a big fan!!!!

Amazing | Reviewer: lucy | 8/15/08

Very Touching | Reviewer: In Love | 12/22/07

I adore this song. I used to hope it would play on the radio, and now I finally own it. It doesn't matter if you can sing, the meaning of the song takes over for you and you can just shout it. Everyone deserves to be someone, and soon my own life will start, and I hope that I will be someone.
