Nowhere Fast (edited version)

You’re lying in your bed on a Saturday night
You’re sweating buckets and it’s not even hot
But your brain has got the message and it’s sending it out
To every nerve and every muscle you’ve got

You’ve got so many dreams that you don’t know where to put ‘em
So you better turn a few of them loose
Your body’s got a feeling that it’s starting to rust
You better rev it up and put it to use

And I don’t know how I ever thought that I could make it all alone
When you only make it better and it better be tonight
And we’ll fly away on those angel wings of chrome in your daddy’s car
Waiting there for you tonight
I’ll be there for you tonight

And if you don’t have anywhere to go
You go down on the pedal and you’re ready to roll
And your speed, it’s all you ever need
And all you ever need to know!
Darling, darling!

You and me we’re goin’ nowhere slowly
And we gotta get away from the past
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast

(aah, aah)

Stalking in the shadows by the light of the moon
It’s like a prison and the night is a cell
Going anywhere has got to be Heaven tonight
‘Cause staying here has got to be Hell

You’re dying in the city like a fire on the water
Let’s go running on the back of the wind
There’s gotta be some action on the face of the earth
And I gotta see your face once again

And I don’t know where I ever got the bright idea that I was cool
So alone and independent, but I’m depending on you now
You’ll always be the only thing that I just can’t be without
And I’m out for you tonight
I’m coming out for you tonight

Even if you don’t have anywhere to go
You go down on the pedal and you’re ready to roll
And your speed, it’s all you ever need
And all you ever need to know!
Darling, darling!

You and me we’re goin’ nowhere slowly
And we gotta get away from the past
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast

Everybody’s goin’ nowhere slowly
They’re only fighting for the chance to be last
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast

God speed! God speed!
God speed! Speed us away
God speed! God speed!
God speed! Speed us away!

God speed! God speed!
God speed! Speed us away!

(we’re going nowhere fast)
God speed!
(going nowhere fast)
God speed!
(we’re going nowhere fast)
God speed! Speed us away!

(we’re going nowhere fast)
God speed!
(going nowhere fast)
God speed!
(we’re going nowhere fast)
God speed! Speed us away! …
