The Real Fast Car
I wish I had me a turbo-engine rocket-fuel jet car Don't know where I'd go but I sure know that I'd go far Head a million miles from here, find myself a new home What if that place turns out to be the same as the place from which I came? What if I've got it good here and I don't even know? What if that's why I'm still here when I really want to go? I want to get away, I want to stay I want to be free, I want you to build your world around me I wish I could understand the meaning of my dreams I wish I could write a song as good as Visions of Johanna When I do will the heavens open and the angels sing hosanna? I mean, how will I know I've done it? How will I realize? When I sing it will a vision of you dance before my eyes? And having something like that I'd have to try to top Might be even worse than never having not NO! I wish I could hear what I'm saying now and smile All the same, I haven't finished a song in a long, long while I dreamed the world was crumbling all around me There in the rubble on the ground you found me And I pull you tight I want to hold you close At the same time I can't stay, I've got to go And there's that car but it's all out of gas I can tell by the speedometer it's the kind that goes real fast I could be someone, be someone, you know I surely could If I could stand on the rock where Moses stood
