"Fast Car" as written by Nermin Harambasic, Robin Jenssen, Ronny Svendsen, Anne Judith Wik, Chris Young and Tiger,....
You got a fast car,
I wanna ticket to anywhere,
Maybe we can make a deal,
Maybe together we can get somewhere,
Any place is better,
Startin' from zero, got nothin' to lose,
Maybe we can make somethin',
Me myself I've got nothin' to prove.

See, my old man's got a problem,
Lives with the bottle, that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for workin',
His body's too young to look like his,
My mama went off and left him,
She wanted more from life than what he could give,
I said somebody's got to take care of him,
Packed up 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,
Leave tonight or we can die this way.


I remember we were drivin',
Drivin' in your car,
Speeds so fast I felt like I was drunk,
City lights laid out before us,
And your arms felt nice wrapped round my shoulder,
And I, I got a feelin' that I belonged,
And I, I got a feelin' I could be someone,
Be someone, be someone.


You got a fast car,
I got a job that pays all our bills,
You stay out drinkin' 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'd find it,
I got no plans, I ain't goin' nowhere,
So take your fast car and keep on drivin'.


I remember we were drivin',
Drivin' in your car,
Speeds so fast I felt like I was drunk,
City lights laid out before us,
And your arms felt nice wrapped round my shoulder,
And I, I got a feelin' that I belonged,
And I, I got a feelin' I could be someone,
Be someone, be someone.


You got a fast car,
Is it fast enough that we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision,
Leave tonight or we can die this way.
