Not so fast

Arpan Dey 2004 (West Bengal)



Not so fast
Oh, not so fast
Didn't you just say
You betrayed me?

I didn't trust you
In the first place
So how do you say
That I'm betrayed?

Oh, betrayed I'm not
Betrayed I can't be
For I trust no one
Not even myself.

Oh, I don't need 
To trust people
I just live life
I just don't care.

And I will live
As long as I'm not
Betrayed by life
But, not so fast.
Not so fast
Not so fast
I ain't going
Anytime soon
Not so fast
I won't become past
So fast
Not so fast
I'll last
Much longer
Not so fast.
