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
 But me myself I got nothing to prove

 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 just a little bit of money
 We 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
 I say 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
 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 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 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 can fly away
 You gotta make a decision
 You leave tonight or live and die this way
