You got a fast car I want a ticket to anywhere 

D        A 
Maybe we make a deal 

F#m7  E 
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Any place is better

Starting from zero got nothing to lose

Maybe we'll make somethin'

I got a plan to get us outta here 

       D              A 
I been working at the convenience store 

F#m7       E 
Managed to save just a little bit of money

Won't have to drive too far 

     F#m7       E 
Just 'cross the border and into the city

See my old man's got a problem 

   F#m7         E 
He lives with a bottle that's the way it is 

            D          A 
He says his body's too old for workin' 

    F#m7                E 
His body's too young to look like his

When mama went off and left him

She wanted more from life than he could give

D         A 
You got a fast car

Is it fast enough so we can fly away 

D        A 
We gotta make a decision

Leave tonight or live and die this way

Chorus
E    E7                    D 
So I remember when we were drivin' drivin' in your car 

A 
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk 

F#m7 
City lights lay out before us 

         E                                        D 
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder  

F#m         E                       D F#m 
And I had a feeling that I belonged   

        E 
I had a feelin' I could be someone 

D          E 
Be someone  be someone 

D A F#m7 E D A F#m7 E

    D           A 
You still ain't got a job 

      F#m7      E 
And I work in a market as a checkout girl 

D      A 
I know things will get better 

F#m7        E 
You'll find work and I'll get promoted 

    D          A 
And we'll move out of the shelter

Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs

I'd always hoped for better
