First time I saw you I was driving in my car / You smiled at me as you drove by / Next time I saw you I was drinking in a bar / Just trying to save the world / And right as time goes by / And still you're stuck inside my mind / And in my pen and in my head / And in my cigaratte in bed / I want you now / Please tell me how / When I go to bed at night / I just can't sleep you're on my mind / You're in my brain, I've gone insane / And now my life is one big pain / I want you now / Please tell me how / I'm just trying to save the world / From girls like you / Then three weeks later you were sleeping next to me / When I woke up sleep / It was just a dream / And right now as time goes by / And still you're stuck inside my mind / And in my pen and in my head / And in my cigarette in bed / You fucked me up / Now I give up / Maybe you would call it fate / I saw you twice in the same day / Once in a car, once in a bar / You've given me a mental scar / You fucked me up / Now I give up

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.
