Sad songs 5C

Recommended Posts

We miss so many opportunities because we are in doubt. Here's a song about it: we've got to make a decision: leave tonight or live and die this way .....

 

the video (great accoustic version)

 

Tracy Chapman - Fast Car

 

 

you got a fast car

and 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

and I got a plan to get us outta here

I been working at the convenience store

managed to save a little bit of money

we wont 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 lives with the bottle that's the way it is

he says his body's to old for working

his body's young to look 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

 

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

 

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

 

you got a fast car

and we go cruising to entertain ourselves

you still ain't got a job

and I work in a market as a check out 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 big house and live in the suburbs

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

 

you got a fast car

but is it fast enough so you could fly away

you gotta make a decision

you leave tonight or live and die this way
