今のあなたに、この音楽を。

今のあなたの気持ちにあった曲を見つけてほしいな。

Fast car-Tracy Chapman■ファスト・カー-トレイシー・チャップマン■和訳・訳詞・歌詞・日本語・Japanese Lyrics

 

あなたは速いクルマをもってる

あたしはどこにでも行けるチケットが欲しい

たぶん、私達、取引できるわ

たぶん、私達一緒にどこかにたどり着ける。

どこか、ここよりマシな場所に…

ゼロからのスタート、失うものは何もない

あたしたち、きっと、なにかを生み出すことができるわよ。

あたしなんかじゃ、証明できないけど。。

 

あなたは速い車を持っている。

あたし、ここから抜け出す計画をしてるの

コンビニエンスストアで働いてたから

ほんのちょっとのお金なら貯めてあるの。

そんなに遠くに行く必要はないのよ。

ちょっとだけ、州境を超えて街に入って

あなたとあたし、ふたりとも職を見つけて

ついには生きている意味さえも見つけるの。

 

みてのとおり、私の老い父親には問題がある。

酒と共にある人生、それがあの人の人生

この老体じゃ働くことはできないよっていうのがあの人の言い分

私はそれにしては、ずいぶん若い体ねって言ったけどね。

ママは行っちゃった、そんな父親を置いて。

ママはあの人と一緒にいるよりもマシな人生が欲しかったの

あたしは「でも!誰かがあの人の面倒をみなきゃいけないわけでしょ!」

って言っちゃって、

だから、あたし、学校をやめちゃったの、そういうわけなの。

 

あなたには速い車がある。

飛んでいくのに充分なくらいに速いのかな?

ここで、決めましょうよ。

今夜ここを去るのか、この生き方でこのまま、ここで死んでいくのか?

 

ねえ、あたし覚えてるの。あなたの車で走った、あの車で走った時のこと

まるで、お酒に酔った時みたいに、スピードが速く感じられて

あたし達のまえに街の光が横たわっていて

あなたの腕が私の肩を包み込むのがとても心地よくて

だから、あたし、あたしね、感じたの

ここがあたしの居場所なんだって

だから、あたし、あたしね、感じたの

なにものかになれるかもしれないって。なにものかに…なにものかに…

 

 

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
He 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 were 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 were 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 were 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
