"Roller Coaster" as written by and Tom/hoppus De Longe....
Breathing deeply, walking backwards
Finding strength to call and ask her
Roller coaster, favorite ride
Let me kiss you one last time

Leave me standing here
Act like I'm not around
The coast will probably never clear
Can I please go home now?

I had that dream
About you again
Where I wait outside
Until you let me in
And there I stayed

Lay beside me
And listen at the wall
We'll keep on lying
Until the summer comes

I had that dream
About you again
Where you drive my car
Right off a fucking cliff

And now I'm breathing deeply, walking backwards
Finding strength to call and ask her
Roller coaster, favorite ride
Let me kiss you one last time

Make me promise
That I will never tell
All I remember is
The way her bedroom smelled

I had that dream
About you again
Where I wait outside
Until you let me in

And now I'm breathing deeply, walking backwards
Finding strength to call and ask her
Roller coaster, favorite ride
Let me kiss you one last time
Goodnight, goodnight

    General CommentThis song is about how a guy really likes a chick and their relationship is like a rollercoaster, it has its high's and it has its lows. There are times when you want to be with them and 'lay beside' them, and there are time you want them to drive your car 'right off a fucking cliff'. it's a truthfull song about relationships and how they have their ups and downs.

    General Commentanybody whose every had any kind of crush, relationship or whatever can realte to this song. it's about really loving/ liking someone, but you can never find any solid ground. it goes from thinking "man, this is the one" to "jesus, is this really worth it?" very great song with something that rings true for people of all kinds

    General CommentI think that this girl likes the guy when none of her friends are around, but when they are around she acts like he's not the.. "Leave me standing here,act like I`m not around The coast will probably never clear,can I please go home now". I agree with what the rest of you said about the other parts.
