You
Can't hear yourself
Can't see yourself
Can't make yourself
Feel the way you want
And I can't face
Face this place
Reminds me of your face
And what it used to mean

Tell me what you want
A thought for each dime
Better hurry up
'Cause we're running out of time
Knowing how you feel
Keep it to your word
Been here for too long
Never thought I'd

Come here anymore
Come here anymore
Come here anymore
Come here anymore

Why
Can't I just see
Past what you wear
The color of your hair
And get within myself
But now I'm gone
Left myself alone
I could never leave
This place you left for me

Tell me what you want
A thought for each dime
Better hurry up
'Cause we're running out of time
Knowing how you feel
Keep it to your word
Been here for too long
Never thought I'd

Come here anymore
Come here anymore
Come here anymore
Come here anymore

Fall in doubt
Find a way out
Fall in doubt
Find a way out

Tell me what you want
A thought for each dime
Better hurry up
'Cause we're running out of time
Knowing how you feel
Keep it to your word
Been here for too long
Never thought I'd

Come here anymore
Come here anymore
Come here anymore
Come here anymore

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.

Amazing

This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
