Roller Coaster

from by Lamar Holley



I waited in line for love.
I started to push and shove.
And when I got on the track
there was no turning back.

Highs and lows—
That's how it goes.
Tilts and turns—
That's how you learn.

Keep your hands inside...

Ride this roller coaster up,
This roller coaster down,
This roller coaster upside down.
Ride this roller coaster up,
This roller coaster down,
Ride it 'round and 'round.

I waited to find my dream,
So why did it make me scream?
I knew that it had some kick,
But now I'm getting sick!

Fast and slow—
That's how it goes.
Drops and curves—
That's how it swerves.

Don't look side to side...


Jumping the track is rarely an option.
Come on, come back and show me some action.
Simply coasting, not worth boasting
Till we finish the ride.
