Yaida Hitomi, "Fast Car" { kanji / romaji / translation }

Artist: 矢井田瞳 (Yaida Hitomi)
Song Title: Fast Car
Album: Andante
Track Number: 2
Released: 2002
Lyrics By: Yaida Hitomi / Tracy Chapman

This is a Japanese cover of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," which is actually one of my favorite songs of all-time. It's a song that got me through a really hard time in my life by giving me the motivation to pull myself out. :) Although Yaiko's version doesn't have lyrics that are quite as gripping, I still absolutely adore it (especially her live version)!

Kanji Romaji English Translation
You got a fast car
此処よりも遠くへ
二人で行くの
何処へ着いても 此処よりはいい
失うものはない
あなたがそこにいればいい
失うとしても
きっと二人ならなんとでもなる

You got a fast car
此処から出ていきたい
お金ならいくらかあるわ
少しぐらいなら食べられそう
行き先は選ばない
エゴもなければ利己もない
そんな土地で仕事を手に
見つけたいの
生きていく意味を

その男はいつでも
年の割りに酒をよく呑んで
働くこともなく
歳月だけが過ぎていった
ママは孤独な彼を捨てた
何もくれない彼をね 
けど私にとってはそうね
唯一の両親でしかない

You got a fast car
あの空までなら飛べるかな
旅立つのかそれとも
ここで死ぬのかきめましょう

この車ならいける行きましょうよ
酔えるくらいのスピードがいい
広がる一面夜景と
包む腕が優しかった
あー私はあなたのもの
あー生まれ変われそうなの
Be someone, be someone・・・・・

You got a fast car
二人なら何処までも行ける
あなたに職はない
けど今の私にはレジが打てる
未来は良くなるわ
そしたら此処を飛びだして ねぇ
大きな家に住んで
のどかな郊外の家がいいわ

この車ならいける行きましょうよ
酔えるくらいのスピードがいい
広がる一面夜景と
包む腕が優しかった
あー私はあなたのもの
あー生まれ変われそうなの
Be someone, be someone・・・・・

You got a fast car
お金を返し終えたなら
もう遅くまで呑まないで
旧友に会ったりして
そう願うの わかる?
二人ならきっと始められそう
はっきりはわからない でも
この fast carでドライブがしたい

この車ならいける行きましょうよ
酔えるくらいのスピードがいい
広がる一面夜景と
包む腕が優しかった
あー私はあなたのもの
あー生まれ変われそうなの
Be someone, be someone・・・・・

You got a fast car
あの空までなら飛べるかな
旅立つのかそれとも
ここで死ぬのか早く決めましょう

You got a fast car.
Can it take the two of us
far away from here?
Wherever we go, it's better than here.
There's nothing to lose.
As long as you're there,
even if all is lost,
surely we can overcome if we're together.

You got a fast car.
I want to get away from here.
I have some money;
it's enough to eat on for a while.
We have no destination.
There's no ego or selfishness, either.
By working hard with my own two hands,
I want to find the meaning of living.

That man always
drank alcohol for years.
He never had a job
as the years passed by.
Mama left that lonely man;
he didn't give her enough.
But for me,
they're the only parents I have.

You got a fast car.
Can it fly us into that distant sky?
We have to decide:
leave now or die here.

This car can go, so let's go.
The speed is so fast it makes me feel drunk.
With the night view spread out before me,
your arm felt so nice wrapped around me.
Ah, and I was yours.
Ah, and I felt like I could start over again
and be someone, be someone...

You got a fast car.
If we're together, we can make it anywhere.
You still have no job,
but now I'm working as a cashier.
Things will get better.
And then we can fly away from here
and live in a big house
in the peaceful suburbs.

This car can go, so let's go.
The speed is so fast it makes me feel drunk.
With the night view spread out before me,
your arm felt so nice wrapped around me.
Ah, and I was yours.
Ah, and I felt like I could start over again
and be someone, be someone...

You got a fast car.
If you've finished paying back all that money,
please don't stay out late drinking
with your friends anymore.
Do you know I wish for that?
It seemed like we could surely start if we were together.
I clearly didn't understand,
but I really wanted to go for a drive in this fast car.

This car can go, so let's go.
The speed is so fast it makes me feel drunk.
With the night view spread out before me,
your arm felt so nice wrapped around me.
Ah, and I was yours.
Ah, and I felt like I could start over again
and be someone, be someone...

You got a fast car.
Can it fly us into that distant sky?
We have to decide:
leave now or die here.
