"Fast Car" as written by Nermin Harambasic, Robin Jenssen, Ronny Svendsen, Anne Judith Wik, Chris Young and Tiger,....
You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we can make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Any place is better
Starting from zero got nothing to loose
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
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
Won't have to drive too far
Just across the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

So remember when we're driving, driving in your car
The speed is so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

My old man's got a problem
He lives with the bottle, that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
His body's too young to look like his
My mamma 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

So remember when we're driving, driving in your car
Speed is so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way
