Hey girl i love you,
Dancing 'round like that will drive me crazy.
But why would i want you,
When it's plain you're not ever wanting me?

Well my whole life all i had was this guitar.
Never gonna be lonely when all i have is music in my heart.
Never gonna wanna be something i am not.
As i get older i'm a be happy with what i got.

'Cause i got music,
and it makes me feel alright.
Got this here music,
and it helps me ease my mind up.
'Cause i got music,
and it takes away the pain.
Got this here music,
and i got it every, every, every day.

Hey my friend's like that,
He drives all those little girls crazy.
Say did you see us,
In the background of the crowd on the TV?
On a summer's day we go and catch some morning waves.
Hanging out with my friends and the vibe can only be ok.
Just like I don't remember rainy days when i was small,
You know i won't remember hatred or nothing at all.

No tempremental alibis,
and I'm not wasting all my time.
And I am looking for the truth in this.
And i don't know just what I'll get, just what ill get.
coz i got this here music

    This makes me feel so happy. All bout how music makes you feel better, and all you need is music.

    Never gonna wanna be something i am not. As i get older i'm a be happy with what i got.

    Just like I don't remember rainy days when i was small, You know i won't remember hatred or nothing at all.

    Amazing lines!

    Don't quite agree with the lyrics on here, i think it's "this here guitar" or "this air guitar". And I think it's "dancing round like that won't drive me crazy" but it doesn't matter it;s stll a great song!

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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”
