Fast Car

Dear Friend,

Ikaw yung sinasabihan ko ngayon kasi alam kong makikinig ka sa’kin.Sana balitaan mo ako kung kamusta ka na kasi magkaibigan pa rin naman tayo kahi malayo na tayo sa isa’t isa. Andami kong gustong sabihin sa’yo lalo pa ngayong wala akong nakakausap at kahit na meron naman, hindi ko alam kung maiintindihan talaga nila ako.

Ilang araw ko nang inuulit-ulit na pinapakinggan ang “Fast Car” na kanta. Pakiramdam ko kasi ang ganda ng kwento sa kanta tsaka ewan ko kung bakit feeling ko, nakaka-relate ako.

You got a fast car
And I want a ticket to go anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere
Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

Sana merong ganung tao.  Yung kaya akong ilayo sa lahat ng ‘to. Sana kahit minsan, maisipan ko na  merong ibang tao na pwede kong pagkatiwalaan. Sana merong taong, sasabay sa’kin papalayo.

You got a fast car
And 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
We 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

Hindi ko naman pinangarap na maging mayaman eh.  Pinangarap mo ba yun? Kasi ako, natuto akong maging kuntento. Gusto ko lang, mamuhay ng payapa sa tabi ng dagat.

You 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
I say 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

Sa totoo lang, gusto ko lang talaga kalimutan ang lahat. Lumayo. Tumira sa isang lugar na walang nakakakilala sa’kin. Tapos mamuhay na iba ang pangalan ko. Hanapin ang sarili ko.Magsimula uli.

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way 

Meron nga kayang taong kayang gawin yun?  Kasi kung meron, di din naman siguro ako papayag na may kasama. Di rin naman siguro ako papayag na merong ibang taong nakikialam sa’kin. Di ko din siguro kayang ganun. Kasi alam mo yun, natutunan ko nang wag mag-expect sa mga taong nasa paligid natin. Kasi minsan, ang mga taong makakasakit talaga sa’yo,eh yung mga taong malapit sa’yo.

I remember we were driving driving in your car
The 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
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

Nakaramdam ka na ba talaga na kahit papaano eh you belong? Kasi ang hirap-hirap pala nun, yung tipong hindi mo alam kung saan ka dapat. Yung tipong hindi mo alam kung saan ka talaga magiging masaya. Paano kung pakiramdam mo, iba ka? Iba ka sa kanila.. at wala kang magagawa para maging katulad nila?  Paano kung pakiramdam mo, di ka na magiging taong ini-expect nila na maging? Paano kung natatakot kang ipakita talaga kung sino ka kasi nahihiya ka sa kung sino ka?

You got a fast car
And we go cruising to 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 big house and live in the suburbs

Pero hindi ko kasi ugaling magplano ang kasama ang ibang tao.  Kasi alam ko na sa sarili ko, mas kaya kong ako na lang. Mas madali na walang bagahe. Hindi din pala ako ang tipo ng taong idedepende kasiyahan ko sa ibang tao.

You got a fast car

And 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 would find it
I got no plans I ain’t going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

Kung tatanungin mo ako ngayon kung ano ang gusto ko, gusto ko lang lumayo. Sobrang layo na kahit ikaw, hindi mo malalaman kung nasaan na ako. Sobrang layo na makakalimutan ng iba na kilala nila ako.

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way.  

Balitaan mo sana ako kung kamusta ka na, kasi alam mo naman, makikinig ako.  Ba-bye muna sa ngayon.🙂
