"Emotional Rollercoaster" as written by Eric Roberson, Vivian Green and Osunlade....
Last night I cried, tossed and turned
Woke up with dry eyes
My mind was racing, feet were pacing
Lord, help me please, tell me what I have gotten into

Ran my three miles to clear my mind
It always helps me out
It's my therapy when I'm losin' it
Which is usually, hey

I'm on an emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy
Lovin' you was never good for me (For me)
But I can't get off

This emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy
Lovin' you was never good for me (For me, oh)
But I can't get off

Yesterday I told myself
I was gonna be okay
Gonna start a new day, truly happy
I was gonna take control of me

But eventually reality hit me
Mentally, physically, emotionally
And I opened my eyes and realized
That I was still bein' taken for a constant ride on
your

I'm on an emotional rollercoaster (Ooh, baby)
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy (For real, it's never
healthy for me)
Lovin' you was never good for me (Oh, but I can't get)
But I can't get off (Ooh...ooh...baby...)

Emotional rollercoaster (You got me goin' up and down)
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy (Oh)
Lovin' you was never good for me (Never good for me,
ah)
But I can't get off

So tired of you makin' love to me
Then disappearing so suddenly
Up and down it goes
And I'm so tired of you pacifyin' me
With promises you know that you'll never keep
Round and round it goes, I am on a

I'm on an emotional rollercoaster (Oh)
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy (Ooh, ain't nothin'
healthy ?bout it, baby)
Lovin' you was never good for me (Nothin' healthy
?bout it, baby)
But I can't get off (Oh, oh)

Emotional rollercoaster
Lovin' you ain't nothin' healthy
Lovin' you was never good for me
But I can't get off

    General CommentThis song is sad... it pretty much says that the guy she's seeing or with is tossing her up and down on an emotional ride... he makes her feel good one moment and then all of the sudden he turns his back on her and does something that he ALREADY knows that she won't like. Here's a little more in-depth meaning to the song:

    "Ran my 3 miles to clear my mind
    It always helps me out
    Its my therapy when I'm losin it which is usually when"
    - She finds herself having to do something to get her mind out of the situation.

    "I'm on an emotional rollercoaster"
    - Emotional rollercoaster is the ride that she's on when she's with that guy.

    "Loving you ain't nothin healthy
    Loving you was never good for me for me"
    - It's not a good habit to be with that guy, but she stays with him because of the good times.

    "Yesterday I told myself I was gonna be ok
    Gonna start a new day truely happy
    I was gonna take control of me"
    - She's trying to get her mind out of him. She tells herself that she will be okay, because she knows she can take control of herself.

    "But eventually reality hit me
    Mentally, physically, emotionally"
    But she still finds herself coming back to him, no matter what she does. Self-motivation doesn't work for her.

    "And I opened my eyes and realized
    That I was still bein taken for a constant ride"
    - No matter what she does, she comes back. And he keeps putting her on that ride.

    "I'm so tired of you makin love to me
    Then disappearin so suddenly
    Up and down it goes"
    - She feels the ride that he's taking her on, and eventually speaks on it.

    "And I'm so tired of you pacifyin me with
    Promises you know that you'll never keep
    Round and round it go"
    - She's tired of him making her feel all safe, because his promises never seemed real. She just can't take it no more. This is the part that she really finally speaks on how she feels.
