Me myself, I got nothing to prove.


Interlude: Cmaj7, G, Em7, DD chord 


Verse 2 - same as first Verse -
You got a fast car
I got a plan to get us out of here:
I been working at the convenience store,
Managed to save just a little bit of money.
Wont't have to drive too far
Just 'cross the border and into the city, 
You and i can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living.


Interlude: Cmaj7, G, Em7, DD chord 


Verse 3 - same as first Verse -
You see my old man's got a problem:
He live with the bottle, thats the way it is.
He says his body's too old for working,
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.


Interlude: Cmaj7, G, Em7, DD chord 


Verse 4 - same as first Verse -
You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision:
Leave tonight or live and die this way.

Chorus
EmEm chord    DD chord                   CC chord

  City lights lay out before us
          DD chord
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder.

And I_____ had a feeling that i belonged
    CC chord   Em7Em7 chord      DD chord                           CC chord           DD chord
And I_____ had a feeling i could be someone, be someone, be someone.


Interlude: Cmaj7, G, Em7, DD chord


Verse 5 - same as first Verse -
You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourelves;
you still ain't fot a job
And work in a 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.

Verse 6 - same as first Verse -
You got a fast car
And i got a job that pays all our bills.
You stay out drinking late at the bar,
See more your friends than you do your kids.
I'd always hoped for better,
Thought maybe together you and me would find it,
I got no plans i ain't going nowhere,
so take your fast car and kep on driving.
