Resolved Question: Fast Car-Tracy Chapman
So i was listening to Fast Car, and trying to see what interpretation i got from it.
What i did get was that the 'Fast Car' could be a metaphor for 'strength, dedication and motivation'. for example, when she says:
'You got a fast car, Is it fast enough so we can fly away'
So what i though she was saying was that you've got the dedication and strength that we need to over come our 'problem', but is it strong enough for us to solve it and make everything better?
I wanted to know, is that correct??
And any other interpretations that anyone has would be really good!! Thank you!
Here's the link to the song:
