  • I don't really know what you're thinking
    But I know what we're drinking
    Let me put your night in drive
    Cat walkin on the runway
    But you belong on the highway
    Calling home is only right
    Yeah

    Can't see nothing but blur lines
    Hey, hey hey
    Actin' like it's your first time
    Hey, hey, hey
    Girl I'm done with these games
    And you need to get in my lane
    Pushin' it to the red line
    Hey, hey, hey

    Girl you know that you want it
    And you know where we're going
    Girl you know where we're going
    And you know that you want it
    Girl, get in my life
    Girl, get in my life
    Girl, get in my
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?

    When I'm in the streets I'm speedin'
    In the streets no reason
    Lookin' in your eyes I see the signs
    Put the start up, louder than a siren
    Girl, give me some silence
    Then go on another ride

    Can't see nothing but blur lines
    Hey, hey hey
    Actin' like it's your first time
    Hey, hey, hey
    Girl I'm done with these games
    And you need to get in my lane
    Pushin' it to the red line
    Hey, hey, hey

    Girl you know that you want it
    And you know where we're going
    Girl you know where we're going
    And you know that you want it
    Girl, get in my life
    Girl, get in my life
    Girl, get in my
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?

    Life
    Girl get in my life
    Girl get in my life
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?

    Girl you know that you want it
    And you know where we're going
    Girl you know where we're going
    And you know that you want it
    Girl, get in my life
    Girl, get in my life
    Girl, get in my
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?

    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life?
    Turn the lights out, put the top down
    Are you ready for the fast life? Writer/s: JAMES FAUNTLEROY, JOSEPH JONAS, LASHAWN DANIELS, ROBIN TADROSS

  • Bmn from Hisuan, ArgentinaThematically, this song can be compared to "Drive" from the 2010 Jonas LA soundtrack. That song is about a woman taking the speaker on "lots of crazy rides" to nowhere in particular, purely for the enjoyment of it, since they "got time." By contrast, "Fastlife" reverses the roles back to the conventional subjugation of a woman by a man, who now proclaims to be "done with these games" and is determined to take her to the place he has in mind, tacitly assuming she agrees with his plans since it's no longer her "first time." "Fastlife" is the more mature song, but only in the sense that it complies with the more mature cliché.
