Fast Car

You got a Fast Car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Any place is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a Fast Car
I got a plan to get us out of here
I've been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
Won’t have to drive too far
Just cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And fin'lly see what it means to be living

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

You got a Fast Car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember when we were driving driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a Fast Car
We go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain’t got a job
And I work in the market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You’ll find work and I’ll get promoted
We’ll move out of the shelter
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs

So I remember when we were driving driving in your car
speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a Fast Car
I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I’d always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me'd find it
I got no plans I ain’t going nowhere
So take your Fast Car and keep on driving

So I remember when we were driving driving in your car
speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a Fast Car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way

Brza kola

Imaš brza kola
A meni treba karta gde god
Možda se možemo dogovoriti
I zajedno negde stići

Kakvo god drugo mesto je bolje
Od ničega nemogu ništa ni izgubiti
Možda ćemo nešto i napraviti
Al sama ništa nemam dokazati

Imaš brza kola
A ja plan za put odavde
Radila sam u prodavnici
I sačuvala nešto malo para
Nemoramo predaleko voziti
Samo van granice i u grad
Možemo se zaposliti
I napokon ću znati šta je pravi život

Moj stari ima problem
Živi u boci i tako je to
Kaže da je previše star da radi
Previše je mlad da na to liči
Napustila ga majka moja
Htela je više od života neg što je on mogo pružit
Rekla sam treba ga neko da čuva
Pa sam zbog toga napustila školu

Imaš brza kola
Jesu li dovoljno brza da u njima odletimo
Moramo odlučiti
Ili otić večeras ili ovako živjeti i umrijeti

Sjećam se vožnje u tvojim kolima
Toliko brzo da me opije
Pred nas sva svjetla grada
Kako lijepo s tvojom rukom oko ramena
Imala sam osjećaj da pripadam
Osjećaj da bi mogla neko, neko, neko biti

Imaš brza kola
Vozamo se na provod
Još uvijek nemaš poso
A ja radim u prodavnici
Znam da će biti bolje
Naći ćeš poso i ja promociju
Izselićemo se iz grupnog doma
Veću kuću kupiti i živjeti u ljepšem kraju

Pa se sjećam vožnje u tvojim kolima
Toliko brzo da me opije
Pred nas sva svjetla grada
Kako lijepo s tvojom rukom oko ramena
Imala sam osjećaj da pripadam
Osjećaj da bi mogla neko, neko, neko biti

Imaš brza kola
A ja poso koji za sve naše plaća
Ostaješ kasno u kafanama
Više drugove viđaš nego djecu svoju
Nadala sam se nečem boljem
Mislila sam da ćemo ga možda zajedno naći
Nemam planova nidge ne idem
Pa uzmi ta brza kola svoja i odvozi

Pa se sjećam vožnje u tvojim kolima
Toliko brzo da me opije
Pred nas sva svjetla grada
Kako lijepo s tvojom rukom oko ramena
Imala sam osjećaj da pripadam
Osjećaj da bi mogla neko, neko, neko biti

Imaš brza kola
Al jesu li dovoljno brza da odletiš
Moraš odlučiti
Idi večeras ili ovako živi i umri

Some of the translations are not literal to avoid awkwardness; I did my best to match colloquial meanings.
