Fast Cars and Freedom Lyrics

Starin' at you takin' off your makeup
Wondering why you even put it on
I know you think you do but baby you don't need it
Wish that you could see what I see it when it's gone
I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes, your...

    This song is about a guy (the singer) who, when looking at his girlfriend/wife taking off her make up can't understand why she wears it because in his eyes,when she isn't wearing any, she looks much younger and reminds him of the days when they felt freer and drove fast cars.

    Hence the whole, "You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom..." and when they apparently fell in love by the river bank. The whole "baby, don't move, right there it is" is when he is looking at her in the present time and catches her looking like she did when they were younger, perhaps teens.

    It's about the love of his life even as they get older in life he is steal in love and she might think she's not as good looking as she was in the past he's telling her she's just as beautiful today has always and when ever she's around he makes him fill young

    Okay... The song is not about his wife/girlfriend! Its about this one girl that he has missed out on. Like all their songs (these days/what hurts the most) they are about a girl he can't get over. He sees her again and all these memories swell up and he is just still in love. It's kind of sad, but it makes a country tune.

    This song is a guy remembering old times (fast cars and fredom) and the one he's in love with. He's saying she doesn't need make up to look beautiful in his eyes.

    From the lyrics, looks like Rascal Flatts owe Springsteen a shout out in their liner notes. Read the lyrics of The River and Thunder Road and you have this piece of crap.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
