Tracy Chapman - Fast Car:歌詞+中文翻譯

1988年發表的歌曲
在當年可說相當火紅
歌曲訴說一個女人
透過與自己命運的對話之中
慢慢地尋找那個解脫的方案


Tracy Chapman - Fast Car



You got a fast car
你有一台車,想去哪裡都行
I want a ticket to anywhere
我要的也不多,只想要一張車票,好讓我離開這裡
Maybe we make a deal
也許我能跟著你吧
Maybe together we can get somewhere
也許我們會過得更好

Anyplace is better
反正去什麼地方,應該都比我家好
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
就算我們什麼都沒有,不過窮者無懼
Maybe we'll make something
也許我們能創造出什麼來?
But me myself I got nothing to prove
但是我沒有學歷、背景、關係,也沒有目標,我該做什麼呢?

You got a fast car
你有一台車,想去哪裡都行
And I got a plan to get us out of here
我也做好了我們的人生規畫
I been working at the convenience store
我去便利商店工作
Managed to save just a little bit of money
我們省吃儉用,還可以攢一點錢

We won't have to drive too far
我們可以先這樣將就過著
Just 'cross the border and into the city
只要我能離開家就好
You and I can both get jobs
我們倆個可以努力工作
And finally see what it means to be living
我想知道所謂的『正常生活』是什麼

You see my old man's got a problem
你知道我爸,他有點不太正常
He live with the bottle that's the way it is
他每天酗酒
He says his body's too old for working
他說自己身體太差了,不能工作
I say his body's too young to look like his
我說他只是喪志墮落罷了

My mama went off and left him
我媽也離家出走了
She wanted more from life than he could give
我媽也想有自己的人生啊!
I said somebody's got to take care of him
我只好照顧我爸
So I quit school and that's what I did
所以我輟學了

You got a fast car
你有一台車,想去哪裡都行
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
不過,這台車真的夠快嗎?
We gotta make a decision
我們該作個決定了
We leave tonight or live and die this way
我們要離開這裡,還是要繼續過這種生活?

See I remember we were driving driving in your car
我記得那天你開得特別快
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
我可能也喝醉了
City lights lay out before us
我看到公路上的路燈指引著我們
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
你摟著我,我很久沒覺得這麼溫暖了

And I had a feeling that I belonged
第一次,我覺得我會有個家
 I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone
我覺得聖靈照著我,我有信心改變一切

You got a fast car
你有一台車,想去哪裡都行
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
我們漫無目的,到處閒晃
You still ain't got a job
你一直沒有找到工作
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
我在超市作收銀員

I know things will get better
不過我對未來還是有信心
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
你一定會找到一份工作,而我會升職
We'll move out of the shelter
我們不用再住在組合屋裡了
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
我們會在郊區買個大房子住

See I remember we were driving driving in your car
我還記得那天的感覺,你開車開得特別快
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
我也喝醉了
City lights lay out before us
公路上的路燈像星光那麼燦爛
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
你摟著我,我終於覺得安全了

And I had a feeling that I belonged
我相信我一定會有個家
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone
我覺得人生充滿希望

You got a fast car
你有一台車,想去哪裡都行
And I got a job that pays all our bills
我工作養你和孩子
You stay out drinking late at the bar
你也開始喝酒了
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
你不回家,整天流連酒吧

I'd always hoped for better
我從沒有放棄過自己和你
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
我以為我們兩個人真的能創造未來
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
這次我真的沒有計畫了
So take your fast car and keep on driving
於是我開走那台車,我不敢停下來,因為我不知道該在什麼地方下車,
也不知道停下來後,我該怎麼面對現實?

See I remember we were driving driving in your car
我還記得那天的感覺,你開車開得特別快
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
我也喝醉了
City lights lay out before us
公路上的路燈像星光那麼燦爛
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
你摟著我,我終於覺得安全了

And I had a feeling that I belonged
我相信我一定會有個家
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone
我覺得人生充滿希望

You got a fast car
我們有一台車,想去哪裡都行
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
但是那台車真的夠快嗎?快得能讓我改變一切嗎?
You gotta make a decision
妳應該作個決定了
You leave tonight or live and die this way
妳要離開這個男人,還是繼續忍耐這種生活一輩子?
