Leontiou, Kristian - Fast Car Lyrics




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 loose
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
I 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
And finally see what it means to be living

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

So remember we were driving, driving in your car
The speed is 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

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

So remember we were driving, driving in your car
Speed is 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

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

    You got a fast car
    I want a ticket to anywhere
    Maybe we make a deal
    Maybe together we can get somewhere
    Anyplace 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 got a plan to get us out of here
    I 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
    And finally see what it means to be living

    You 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
    Leave tonight or live and die this way

    So remember 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
    I had a feeling that I belonged
    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
    I work in a 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

    I remember 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
    I had a feeling that I belonged
    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 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

    I remember 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
    I had a feeling that I belonged
    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
    Leave tonight or live and die this way

  2. The Music Journal Brazil

    Kristian, você redescobriu este clássico!

  3. riverphoenixbrasil

    Melhor que a original. Perfeito!

  4. William Macbeth

    Versão com mais harmonia.

    Tracy Chapman que me perdoe.

  5. thewestwardsky

    lets be glad alanis never did a fast car version during her first two albums (well, second two albums). it would have sounded something like this. and its terrible. some things just should not be.

  6. Joceli Saraiva

    The best version ever!!!

    Serzh Serzh

    Joceli Saraiva indeed.

  7. andrew arbon

    love this song

  8. Christopher Hargreaves

    Completely butchered a classic, well-done

    E HaFeeD

    I like it better than the original, his voice is otherworldly.
