Lyrics:
Fast Car - David Usher

[Intro]

[Verse]
You 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 got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

[Ad-lib]

[Verse]
You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just to cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

[Ad-lib]

[Verse]
You 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 for looking like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more to 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

[Ad-lib]

[Pre-Chorus]
You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

[Chorus]
I remember we were driving
Driving in your car
The 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 had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could
Be someone, be someone, be someone

[Verse]
You got a fast car
And we go cruising, entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in the market in the checkout line
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs

[Chorus]
I remember we were driving
Driving in your car
The 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 had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could
Be someone, be someone, be someone

[Verse]
You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought 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

[Ad-lib]

[Pre-Chorus]
You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you could fly away
You gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

[Chorus]
I remember we were driving
Driving in your car
The 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 had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could
Be someone, be someone, be someone

[Ad-lib]
