"Fastlane" as written by Anastacia L. Newkirk, Glen Ballard and Kara Dioguardi....
Itâ??s lonely sometimes in the fast lane
People come and go like rain
And I look around for a hand to hold
But thereâ??s no one here today
Everyone has gone away
And left me in the fray

So donâ??t wish upon a star
'Cause a star can only get you so far
And it doesnâ??t matter who you are
'Cause the sky looks better from the ground, anyway
You never know what you got
And even if you do it donâ??t mean itâ??s gonna stay
Tomorrow is another day
You only live once and Iâ??m living for today
Iâ??m living for today

So I drive around the superficial town
With a smile on my face
No one really knows how I feel inside
And Iâ??m keeping it that way
Itâ??s my story to replay
And the fast lanes where I wanna stay

So donâ??t wish upon a star
'Cause a star can only get you so far
And it doesnâ??t matter who you are
'Cause the sky looks better from the ground, anyway
You never know what you got
And even if you do it donâ??t mean itâ??s gonna stay
Tomorrow is another day
You only live once and Iâ??m living for today

I canâ??t find my sanity
I'm about to lose my mind
And I, I canâ??t find my sanity
Well I want to lose my mind
And if only I can show me that nobody's gonna bring me down
Sing it!

So donâ??t wish upon a star
'Cause a star can only get you so far
And it doesnâ??t matter who you are
'Cause the sky looks better from the ground, anyway
You never know what you got
And even if you do it donâ??t mean itâ??s gonna stay
Tomorrow is another day
You only live once and Iâ??m living for today
Iâ??m living for today

    General CommentThis is such an awesome song!

    To me its about being strong and living life or the moment and getting the most out if it.

    When she says its lonely in the fastlane, i think it means that somtimes others can't keep up with you or how you are. but she's gonna stay in the fastlane cause she's stronger then that, she doesn't need other people to live her life the way she wants.

    I thin kthat when she says you never know what you've got etc... she means that you don't know what you have, and somtimes you lose what makes you happy but you gotta keep going.

    General Commenti can't believe this song has only 1 comment. This one has much more meaning than rumors and is alot more relateable.

    I like the part where it goes:
    "So don’t wish upon a star
    Cause a star can only get you so far "

    i think she tries to tell people not just to wish for something but to acually do it, cause the wish alone wont get you where you wanna go.

    General Commentthis is about her partying all the time and being in what they call the "fastlane" when all you really want to do is party.....and she's saying she's living in the moment b/c u only live once...which is true.

    General Commenti think thats abou a period of her life, she said "So don’t wish upon a star
    Cause a star can only get you so far "
    i think she wished , and now she's like living a insane life, a fast life, all the things happens so fast, its abou instability "
    People come and go like rain
    And I look around for a hand to hold
    But there’s no one here today "
    all things happens, so crazy.
    its about the way she lives .
