“Fast As You” is a classic country rock song by the iconic singer Dwight Yoakam. Released in 1993 as a single from his album “This Time,” the song quickly became a hit among fans of country and rock music thanks to its catchy melody and infectious guitar riffs.
At its core, “Fast As You” is a song about independence and self-reliance – about the ways in which we can find strength and resilience by relying on ourselves and our own inner resources. The lyrics speak to the narrator’s own experiences with relationships and love, and the ways in which he’s been able to move on from past hurts and disappointments by staying true to himself.
In one verse, Yoakam sings, “Maybe someday I’ll be strong / Maybe it won’t be long / I’ll be the one who’s tough / You’ll be the one who’s got it rough.” Here, he’s expressing the idea that even though we may face challenges and struggles in life, we can still find the inner strength to keep pushing forward and pursuing our goals and dreams.
Throughout the song, there’s a sense of determination and resilience that comes through in the lyrics – the idea that by staying true to ourselves and our values, we can overcome even the toughest obstacles and emerge stronger and more confident than ever before. In one chorus, Yoakam sings, “But you know that I can take it / There’s no limit to what I feel / If you need me, I’ll be waitin’ / Time after time / If you’re lost, you can look / And you will find me / Time after time / If you fall, I will catch you / I’ll be waiting / Time after time.”
Here, he’s celebrating the idea of self-reliance and independence – of finding strength and comfort in our own abilities and resources, rather than relying on others to save us. It’s a message that speaks to the importance of staying true to ourselves and our values, even in the face of adversity.
In many ways, “Fast As You” is a timeless classic that celebrates the enduring spirit of resilience and determination. Its catchy melody and infectious guitar riffs have made it an enduring favorite among fans of country and rock music, while its underlying message continues to resonate with listeners of all ages and backgrounds.
