"Rolling Stone" as written by and Michael David Rosenberg....
Sometimes I feel I’m going nowhere
Sometimes I’m sure I never will
She said it’s ‘cause I’m always moving
I never notice ‘cause I never stand still

Sometimes I feel like I’m falling
Falling fast and falling free
She said "My darling you’re not falling,
Always looked like you were flying to me."

But I fear I’ve grown a rolling stone inside of me
She said "Oh don’t you know
The rolling stones stop at the sea,
And that’s where I’ll be."

Sometimes I’m sure I know no one
A thousand faces but no names
She said "My love you do know someone,
Oh and I know you back just the same."

"But I’m scared," I said, "what if this stone don’t slow down?"
"Oh just be aware," she said
"What goes up will come down
And when you do I’ll be around."

Oh when I’ve dragged this rolling stone across this land
I’ll make sure I leave this stone in her hand
For we both know too well, the rolling stones turn into sand
If they don’t find a place to stand

    General CommentI think this song is about someone in a relationship with someone that they love but they're struggling inside with their own problems but they have this person who listens to them and cares for them and will be there for them when they are over their own problems and I just really like it and think it's so nice

    General CommentBest marriage song ever. I feel this is about the other person, the one who does their best to give us perspective, to help us see how far we have come. This is what healthy relationships strive to be, mutual support and understanding to keep your partner from crumbling to sand.
