You all alone there in the dark
Shadows sinking into you
You're so afraid of everything
Is there something left for you

Why bleed for the wicked
If the wicked don't bleed for me
Got to stand up
Psych myself up
That's the way it's gonna be

Why can't I move
I'm tied up here
He said I've seen this pain before
Sometimes I want to disappear
Got to tell ya I'm feeling paranoid

[Chorus]
What you gonna do
What you gonna be
When they're coming after me
I know that I'm feeling the lonely one
Repeat

Drinking away
Smoking away
Anything to stop the noise
Inside your head
Numbness instead
Until your thinking finds a cure

Why bleed for the wicked
If the wicked don't bleed for me
Got to stand up
Psych myself up
That's the way it's gonna be

Why can't I move
I'm tied up here
He said I've seen this pain before
Sometimes I want to disappear
Got to tell ya I'm feeling paranoid

[Chorus: Repeat x7]

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
