You got a fast car
Maybe we make a deal
Anyplace is better
Maybe we'll make something

I got a plan to get us out of here
Managed to save just a little bit of money
Just 'cross the border and into the city
And finally see what it means to be living
You see my old man's got a problem
He says his body's too old for working
My mama went off and left him
I said somebody's got to take care of him

Is it fast enough so we can fly away
Leave tonight or live and die this way
So remember we were driving, driving in your car
City lights lay out before us
I had a feeling that I belonged

We go cruising to entertain ourselves
I work in a market as a checkout girl
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs
I remember we were driving, driving in your car
City lights lay out before us
I had a feeling that I belonged

I got a job that pays all our bills
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
So take your fast car and keep on driving
I remember we were driving, driving in your car
City lights lay out before us
I had a feeling that I belonged

But is it fast enough so you can fly away
Leave tonight or live and die this way
