"Fast Cars And Freedom" as written by and Wendell Lee/levox Mobley....
Starin' at you takin' off your makeup
Wondering why you even put it on
I know you think you do but, baby, you don't need it
Wish that you could see what I see it when it's gone
I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder

Wait, baby, don't move, right there it is
T-shirt hanging off a dogwood branch
That river was cold, but we gave love a chance
Yeah, yeah, to me
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
That sunset river bank first time feeling

Yeah, smile and shake your head as if you don't believe me
I'll just sit right here and let you take me back
I'm on that gravel road, look at me
On my way to pick you up; you're standing on the front porch
Looking just like that, remember that?

I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder

Wait, baby, don't move, right there it is
T-shirt hanging off a dogwood branch
That river was cold, but we gave love a chance
Yeah, yeah, to me
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
That sunset river bank first time feeling

I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your head on my shoulder
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
That sunset river bank first time feeling

    General Commenti think that this song is a reminder to all girls that makeup doesnt show beauty. All women are beautiful

    General Commenti think on top of that, he's saying to her, not only that she looks naturally beautiful, but that she still looks as young and as beautiful as she looked when their relationship began... "you don't look a day over Fast cars and freedom" (the days of youth), and the references of the "old red Nova" and the river being cold are memories from those days when they were younger.

    General CommentIt's talking about love, and being young, and the enjoyment of love while being young. The fun and freedom that one can share and have whike being younger. It talks about rememberance of past days, and how beautiful this girl is. Their days spent together. The love they shared. The love they both made. It says all about their love, and how stil with time he can still remember their past fun days together!

    General CommentDang, wasnt too big of a Rascal Flatts fan before this song but i got all of their Cd's now. Just a great summer song talkin about the euphoria and joy of bein in love and how fond those memories can be looking back on them sometimes. Every guy day dreams about the girl of his dreams and gets that feeling.

    General CommentThis song is "behind words cool" and "wide eyed wonder cool" - I can't get over it. It never ceases to impress me.

    General CommentI love this song, especially the first few lines: "Starin at you, taking off your makeup, wondering why you even put it on" and "You smile and shake your head, as if you don't believe me" because it reminds me so much of my boyfriend. He tells me I'm gorgeous almost every day, but I just shake my head and don't believe him. And even when I don't put my makeup on, he still thinks I'm beautiful

    General Commentevery women is beautiful. some just might have a little more beauty than others. which i think its pretty fucked up that guys will pick a pretty gurl with a bad personality than have a okay looking gurl with a wonderful personality.
