Mmmm
I love it when you play it like that
Come on... Play

Sittin' here alone I'm lookin' back on where I've roamed
And laughing how I swore I'd win and not get burned
Left my family
Left my home
I worked my fingers to the bone
And there was not a stone I did not leave unturned
And I was havin' a good time

Roll on Roll on Roller Coaster
We're one day older and one step closer
Roll on there's mountains to climb
Roll on we're on borrowed time
Roll on Roller coaster
Roll on tonight
Roll on tonight yeah

Money and success
I don't complain about the stress
I wanted this and now it's here
So I don't bitch
And I swear that time's a trick
It disappears in oh so quick
Man I was just sixteen
And now I'm starin' at thirty-six
But I'm still havin' a good time

Roll on Roll on Roller Coaster
We're one day older and one step closer
Roll on there's mountains to climb
Roll on we're on borrowed time
Roll on Roller coaster
Roll on tonight
Roll on tonight

And I know it's hard to see with the sun in your eyes
But one day you're gonna say I saw the light

And now headin' for the hill
And I just cannot wait until
My children grow up to have children of their own
And I'll be telling them about
The times I turned the party out
And how I stood against an army all alone
Drinkin' wine and stayin' high
And realized it couldn't last
And how I turned myself around
And went down another path
And the signs we must observe
When life's changes do occur
But most of all I'll tell them
Just how proud I am of them
And always have a good time
It's all love and good times
Let's all have a good time Yeah

Roll on Roll on Roller Coaster
We're one day older and one step closer
Roll on there's mountains to climb
Roll on we're on borrowed time
Roll on Roller coaster
Roll on tonight
Roll on tonight

    And now headin' for the hill.
    And I just cannot wait until.
    My children grow up to have children of their own.
    And I'll be telling them about.
    The times I turned the party out.
    And how I stood against an army all alone.
    Drinkin' wine and stayin' high.
    And realized it couldn't last.
    And how I turned myself around.
    And went down another path.
    And the signs we must observe.
    When life's changes do occur.
    But most of all I'll tell them.
    Just how proud I am of them.
    And always have a good time.
    It's all love and good times.
    Let's all have a good time Yeah.

    He does take a bit of poetic license here. He did grow up a upper middle class kid. He went to ny 3 times and came back to mi 3 times before he made it. He could not have done that without the old man supporting him. All that said, he is one of the best musicians of our time. He can play any instrument and has a great rock 'n' roll voice. I never did like his rap stuff. I'm just glad a talented musician like this has gotten back to his bluesy, rock 'n' roll roots!

    It's about living life in general... To be productive with life but do it with a lil' pep in your step, a lil' spring in your leap, life isn't all so serious... Live life and have fun doing it... And this song is by far one of his best... Roll on~♥

    this song tells about his life and how he worked his way to glory. the hardships he went thru to gain success and the times he had wen he was 16 and how the times have changed now he's 36 and ready to start it all again just like old days,he talks abt the time that disappears just so quick and not a moment to tink and react to the things thats already gone worng but he's optimistic and wants to change things in life. later he talks abt his children and their children and telling them the things he did and how a party goer he was, but throughout the song he is intent of telling people to enjoy the life as time is precious and make the most of it
