小编摘要:城市好大,却容不下一个孤单的你。美国创作女歌手Tracy Chapman的《Fast Car》透露着淡淡的感伤,一个人的颠沛流离,虽心酸但也让人从中看见了歌者对生活的乐观。

 

歌曲简介:1964年Tracy Chapman(特蕾西.查普曼) 出生于美国俄亥俄州的克利夫兰的一个工人家庭,她从小开始学习弹奏吉他,后尝试创作歌曲。高中毕业后,特蕾西.查普曼因获取少数民族学生奖学金得以到大学就读深造。在大学时,她主修人类学和非洲人文学。求学期间,她迷恋上了民谣摇滚,开始在咖啡馆里弹唱自己的作品。她的歌旋律简单,朗朗上口,歌词深刻,发人深省。

自1988年以同名专辑与其中单曲“Fast Car“进入歌坛并且一鸣惊人以来,Tracy Chapman就一直被视为创作型才女歌手,誉为当代乐坛上最有份量的歌手/词曲作家之一。

Tracy Chapman  - Fast Car

 

Lyrics:

 

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

Anyplace 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
And 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
We 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

You see my old man's got a problem
He live 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
But 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 we were driving driving in your car
The 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
And we go cruising to 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 big house and live in the suburbs
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 of your friends than you do of 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 keep on driving

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
