Tracy Chapman ~ Fast Car # TakingaChance #FastCars #MUSICVIDEO #Photography #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction

"We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other's opposite and complement.” 

~ Hermann Hesse

I had a good day! Mainly because I have committed to some goals and I'm actually stepping up to the plate. No more excuses, I promise. 

The first goal is to pay off debt in order to be free to travel and play when I retire which is around the corner. I am doing this LOL! I paid off a major bill. So far my monthly cash flow has increased by $400. You need to understand, spending money is like a drug habit. It fills a void; however the accomplishment of goals is the real deal. It not only is going to get me where I want to go but it also makes me feel strong, in control and fabulous. 

The second goal is to loose weight. I started this weekend with my exercise routine. I am in serious pain. This time, however I am going to use a weight loss supplement to help me. I am sampling two types supplements. The first company is sending me a 30-day sample for free. It should arrive in a couple of days. If this one does not work, on the 15th I plan of buying a different product recommended by a friend. I will try both. Each for a 30 day period and stick with the one that actually helps me drop pounds. Details will be forthcoming soon.

I am home and it is a Tuesday Night, so let’s hear a little jazzy ditty by Tracy Chapman ~ "Fast Car's" (2). I know, I am stuck like Chuck on her music but what can you do about it, it's just a feeling....Whoosh!!! It is all just perfect and right! The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Mar 8, 2007 by cristian orrego.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Fast Car" (3)
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

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning.

Peace and Love Always Diana

J’ai commencer ma matinée pensé à toi mon amour et aller pour dormir de penser à vous. Est cet amour que vous pouvez faire confiance ? Pouvez-vous croire en une personne comme moi ? Je dirais, oui parce que mes actions parlent pour eux soi.
