[Jon Brion]
I'll be out on the town
In the jacket you bought me
After dragging me down
In the trouble you brought me

And I'll be doing the same things
Running ‘round, wouldn't that be something?
I'm doing all of the same things
So here goes nothing

Got away with so much
I got by on so little
Now I'm way out of touch
With a faith that's too brittle

And I'm doing the same things
It's hypocritical, don't remind me
'Cause when I'm doing the same things
Same old things will blind me

[Jason Falkner]
Oh yeah (Oh yeah)
Well there's always someone you cannot replace
But you're hiding something deeper you can't face
As you wander around just feeling out of place

[Jon Brion]
Oh, it's always something
So here goes nothing

And now I'm doing the same things
Though it's never a noble mission
It's an indication of bad things
And my sad condition

Same things
Running 'round, wouldn't that be something?
I'm doing all of the same things
So here goes nothing
Here goes nothing...
Nothing, nothing

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Battle Royale
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.
