"Roll On" as written by and Robert J Ritchie Marlon Young....
Sittin here alone
I'm lookin back on where I've roamed
And laughin, oh 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 having a good time
Oh, Roll On, roll on, roller coaster
We're one day older
and one step closer.
Roll on, there's mountains to climb
Roll on, were on borrowed time.
So roll on, roll on rollercoaster,
Roll on tonight

Money and success
I don't complain about the stress
I wanted this and now its here
So I don't bitch.
And I swear that time's a trick
It disappears oh so quick
Man I was just 16,
Now I'm staring at 36.
But I'm still having a good time! (Good time!)

Oh, Roll On, roll on, roller coaster
We're one day older
and one step closer.
Roll on, there's mountains to climb
Roll on, were on borrowed time.
So roll on, roll on rollercoaster,
Roll on tonight

    Song MeaningGreat Song, It is A Great Meaning Of Life. Life Rolls On with out anything we can do about it. So While We are hear on earth we make the best of it. Every day we are one day older and one day closer to the day we leave this earth. In Out Life It Is Sad That We Spend More Time At Work Than With Out Famile and the ones We Love. But Thats The Way We Live We Need To Work To Live. It Is Sad Because We Are On Borrowed Time. No One Knows The Day Or Time Of Our Deth. The Worst Thing is when you have a fight with Family friends or the one you love. You go to work not knowing if that was the last time you may see that person. All it takes is one car accident or work accident to end his or her life. Everytime I Hear This Song It Reminds Me Of That. So I Like To Alwasy Leave on a good note with people so if it is the last time you see them it was not on bad terms. I Think this is one of Kid Rocks Best Songs. I Really Only Like Three Of Them. "Only God Knows Why. " Roll On" and "Blue Jeans and a Rosary" These are Three Of His Best Songs. I Think anyway.
