You got a fast carI want a ticket to anywhereMaybe we make a dealMaybe together we can get somewhere

Anyplace is betterStarting from zero got nothing to loseMaybe we'll make somethingBut me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast carAnd I got a plan to get us out of hereI've been working at the convenience storeManaged to save just a little bit of moneyWe won't have to drive too farJust 'cross the border and into the cityYou and I can both get jobsAnd finally see what it means to be living

You see my old man's got a problemHe live with the bottle that's the way it isHe says his body's too old for workingI say his body's too young to look like hisMy mama went off and left himShe wanted more from life than he could giveI said somebody's got to take care of himSo I quit school and that's what I did

You got a fast carBut is it fast enough so we can fly awayWe gotta make a decisionWe leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember we were driving driving in your carThe speed so fast I felt like I was drunkCity lights lay out before usAnd your arms felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulderAnd I had a feeling that I belongedAnd I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast carAnd we go cruising to entertain ourselvesYou still ain't got a jobAnd I work in a market as a checkout girlI know things will get betterYou'll find work and I'll get promotedWe'll move out of the shelterBuy a big house and live in the suburbs

I remember we were driving driving in your carThe speed so fast I felt like I was drunkCity lights lay out before usAnd your arms felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulderAnd I had a feeling that I belongedAnd I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone(x3)

You got a fast carAnd I got a job that pays all our billsYou stay out drinking late at the barSee more of your friends than you do of your kidsI'd always hoped for betterThought maybe together you and me would find itI got no plans I ain't going nowhereSo take your fast car and keep on driving

I remember we were driving driving in your carThe speed so fast I felt like I was drunkCity lights lay out before usAnd your arms felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder

And I had a feeling that I belonged
