Khalid - Fast Car

You've got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we can make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere
Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
Me myself I've got nothing to prove

You've got a fast car
I've got a plan to get us outta here
I've been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just across the border and into the city
You and I will both get jobs
Finally see what it means to be living

See my old man's got a problem
He lives with a bottle that's the way it is
Says his body's too old for working
His body's too young to look like this
So my momma went off and left him
She wanted more to life than he could give
I said somebody's gotta take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did

You've got a fast car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We've gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way


See I remember we were driving
Driving in your car
Speed so fast felt like I was drunk
City lights laid out before us
And your arms felt nice wrapped around my shoulders and
I-i had a feeling that I belonged
And I-I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You've got a fast car
I've got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bars
See more your friends than you do your kids
I always hoped for the better
That maybe together you and me would find it
I ain't got no plans I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving
Keep on driving, yeah

See I remember we were driving
Driving in your car
Speed so fast felt like I was drunk
City lights laid out before us
And your arms felt nice wrapped around my shoulders and
I-I had a feeling that I belonged
And I-I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You've got a fast car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
You've gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way
This way, yeah-eah-eah-eah, -eah
Mmmm
