VERSE 1
I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
Just prayed to a god that I don't believe in
Cause I got time while he got freedom 
Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even
His best days will be some of my worst
He finally met a girl that's gonna put him first
While I'm wide awake he's not trouble sleeping
Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even, even no..

CHORUS
[Cadd9]   [G)                    [D]                  [Em7]

[Cadd9]   [G)                    [D]                  [Em7]

[G]                    [Cadd9]
You took your suitcase, I took the blame
[Em7]                                [G/F#]   [G]  
Now I'm trying to look back on what little remains, oh

Cause you left me with no love and no love to my name.

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

About the artist behind Breakeven Fast Car:

Colbie Marie Caillat (pronounced /ˈkoʊlbi kəˈleɪ/ (info) "Kole-bee Kal-lei") (born May 28, 1985 in Newbury Park, California) is an American pop singer-songwriter and guitarist from Malibu, California. Her father, Ken Caillat, co-produced Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and Tusk albums; Caillat recalls being around the likes of Mick Fleetwood and John McVie as a child.[1]

The popularity of Caillat's MySpace profile led her to become the number-one unsigned singer in her genre for four months.[2] Her popularity on the social network was partially due to her song "Bubbly," and the songs on her profile have been played more than forty-two million times (as of May 31st, 2008).[3] For the week of July 17, 2007, "Bubbly" was featured on the iTunes Store as the free "Single of the Week". The promotion coincided with the release of Coco, her debut studio album. Caillat was also spotlighted by Rhapsody during the 2007 Black Friday Sale at Best Buy.

According to her MySpace profile, Caillat was first inspired to start singing at age eleven when she first heard the Fugees' 1996 version of the song "Killing Me Softly", made famous by Roberta Flack in 1973. Her MySpace profile also states that, though trained at piano from an early age, Caillat did not begin playing guitar until age nineteen.

In May 2008, Caillat recorded a duet with Jason Mraz, called "Lucky," on his album, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things.[4] The same month, Caillat recorded a cover of the song "Kiss the Girl" from The Little Mermaid for Disney's DisneyMania vol. 6 CD.[5]

Caillat is currently shooting another music video in Hawaii for her song "The Little Things."[6]
