fast car lyrics (feat. kina grannis) – boyce avenue

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
but me myself i got nothing to prove

you got a fast car
i got a plan to get us out of here
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
but 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
we leave tonight or live and die this way

so i remember when we were driving driving in your car
the speed so fast 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
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 i remember when we were driving driving in your car
the speed so fast 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 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 a 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

so i remember when we were driving driving in your car
the speed so fast 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
you leave tonight or live and die this way
