​Faster

This song is by Rachael Yamagata and appears on the album Elephants...Teeth Sinking Into Heart (2008).

I can't talk to you
You think I'm lost inside my mind
You're like an old tattoo
And I know you'll fade in time

I'm not the girl you think you know
I'm not the girl you waited for
I'm not the one for you
There's just one thing left to do

Why don't you let me be?
'Cause I'm a million miles away
Why don't you set me free?
You don't treat me like you say

I won't tuck you in, one last time
I'm taking back what is mine, for me
I belong to me

And I'm going faster
You're going backwards
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
I'm going faster
I know what I'm after
I should have been after it all along
I'm going faster
I'm going faster

That's the last black eye
I hope I ever give to you
Yeah, I had a good time
But what's a girl supposed to do?

Take the pictures off the wall
They don't look like us at all
They don't look like friends
I've got new things to begin

Why don't you let me be?
'Cause I'm a million miles away
Why don't you set me free?
I belong to me

And I'm going faster
You're going backwards
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
I'm going faster
I know what I'm after
I should have been after it all along
I'm going faster
I'm going faster

And I'm going faster
You're going backwards
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
I'm going faster
I know what I'm after
I should have been after it all along
I'm going faster
I'm going faster
