I'm Nobody

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

Me myself … I got nothing to prove

--------- --------- ---------

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

Won'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

--------- --------- ---------

See my old man's got a problem

Live with the bottle … That's 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

--------- --------- ---------

You got a fast car

Is it fast enough ……

So we can fly away?

--------- --------- ---------

We gotta make a decision

--------- --------- ---------

Leave tonight

Or live and die this way

--------- --------- ---------

So remember … When we we’re 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

I had a feeling

I could be someone

Be someone

Be someone

--------- --------- ---------

You got a fast car

We go cruising … Entertain ourselves

You still ain't got a job

And I 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

--------- --------- ---------

So remember

When we we’re 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

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 find it

I got no plans I ain't going nowhere

So take your fast car ………

And keep on driving

--------- --------- ---------

So remember ......

When we we’re 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

I had a feeling I could be someone

Be someone

Be someone

--------- --------- ---------

You got a fast car

Is it fast enough

So you can fly away?

--------- --------- ---------

You gotta make a decision

--------- --------- ---------

Leave tonight

Or live and die this way

The first time I heard this song on the radio …… I was driving around in a large city in the United States …… Alone …… With very little money.

********* ********* *********

********* ********* *********

I have spent the last ten years of my life alone …… In another large American city …… I worked my fingers to the bone at difficult jobs …… I attended college …… I graduated …… And I am still alone …… I have nothing to show for all that hard work …… Truth.

********* ********* *********

********* ********* *********

“Leave tonight or live and die this way” …… Indeed.

********* ********* *********

********* ********* *********

I want out.

********* ********* *********

Thank You for post all of these songs ...... I took the time to listen to each one of them.
*********------*********------*********
When I was publishing weezer919.com ...... (Which is now gone ... Because I severely pissed off a certain multi-million dollar organization ... And they threatened legal action against my web hosting company if they did not remove the website and confiscate all of my domain names) ...... I used to create something inflammatory at the top of each website page ...... Something designed to capture attention ...... And then ...... Below that ...... I chose a song ...... I published the lyrics to the song ...... I found images that illustrated the song lyrics ...... When I published David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" ...... I received 70,000 hits in 24 hours ...... I chose the songs very carefully ...... However ...... When trolling became weaponized ...... When trolling was hijacked by white supremacists ...... And when trolling was hijacked by foreign governments for the purpose of influencing elections ...... I was heartbroken ...... I walked away from publishing websites and trolling ...... Never to return ...... I will never publish another website ...... I am horrified by what has become of trolling ...... I do Not wish to be associated with racists or foreign governments who have Stolen my work for their personal gain.

@Red star ...... I played your "Fast Car" video and then quickly scrolled up top so I could read the lyrics to this song ...... I sang along ...... I almost started crying ...... But I finished ...... I Love "Fast Car" ...... Thank You.

@polyswarm ...... I was blown away by this Nat King Cole song ...... Amazing lyrics ...... Brilliant voice ...... The guitarist is one of the ten best I've ever seen ...... He makes it look effortless ...... With a smile on his face ...... Thank You.
