My new song

January 4, 2009

Have you ever heard a song on the radio, and swore that they were singing just for you? When the lyrics seem to correspond directly to something that’s going on in your life?  It happens to me…I wouldn’t say often, but more often than not.

My new song? Kid Rock’s Roll On.  I heard it on the radio two days ago, and the lyrics reminded me of everything I’m thinking about my last semester in college. Read the lyrics after the break…

Roll On

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
