"Faster" as written by Rachael Amanda Yamagata and Paul Richard Durham....
I can't talk to you
You think I'm lost inside my mind
You're like an old tattoo
And I know you'll fade in time

I'm not the girl you think you know
I'm not the girl you waited for
I'm not the one for you
It's just one thing left to do

Why don't you let me be
Cause I'm a million miles away
Why don't you set me free
Cause you don't treat me like you said

I won't tuck you in one last time
I'm taking back what is mine
For me
I belong to me, yeah

[Chorus]
I'm going faster
You're going backwards
You're going to miss me when I'm gone
I hang from the ceiling
I feel what I'm feeling
Should've been feeling it all along

I'm going faster
I'm going faster

That's the last black eye
I hope I ever give to you
Yeah, I had a good time
But what's a girl supposed to do

Take the pictures off the wall
They don't look like us at all
They don't look like friends
I've got new things to begin

Why don't you let me be
Cause I'm a million miles away
Why don't you set me free
I belong to me

[Chorus]

I'm going faster
I'm going faster

[Chorus]

I'm going faster
I'm going faster

    General CommentNatahley, I think she's just played it live so far. Iirc she used a lyric from it in the 'appetizer' vid for her next album, though; last I heard, it'll be out in October (finally).

    As far as meanings - well, sort of - I think it's interesting that she uses the 'taking-down' pictures motif in both this song and 'Woman.' So I've always figured this one's about finally really getting over James .. whoever that is.

    General Commentthis is probably my favorite song at the time.
    explains what's going on in my life at the time just perfectly.

    General CommentI absolutely agree.
    I've been caught in a transition; the ending of a relationship.
    I had no words, just emotions. And then I heard this song and finally, it all made sense.

    I'm a million miles away.
