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 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
Cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

My old man's got a problem
Lives with the bottle that's the way it is
He says body's too old for working
Body's too young to look like his
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
Packed in school, that's what I did

Baby got a fast car
We go cruising, entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And 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

So remember when you 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 had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

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

Be someone...
