"Rollercoaster" as written by Theron Makiel Thomas, Timothy Jamahli Thomas and Rodney Jerkins....
I still haven´t got over it even now.
I want to spend huge amounts of time on my own.
I don´t want to cause any serious damage.
I want to make sure that I can manage,
Because I´m not really in your head,
I´m not really in your head.

And I see love and disaffection
And the clouds build up and won´t pass over.
This is my road to my redemption.
And my life is just an image of a rollercoaster anyway.

I still haven´t got over it even now.
I want to spend huge amounds of time in my room.
And I´m not coming out until I feel ready,
Not running out for a while my heart´s unsteady,
And I´m not really in your head.
I´m not really in your head.

When you sky falls to minus zero,
Well some things must dissappear.
Oh this is my road to my redemption.

And my life is just an image of a rollercoaster anyway.
The names may have been changed but the faces are the same
The names may have been changed but as people we´re not the same.

And I´m not, no I´m not, no I´m not
Really in your head.

And my life is just an image of a rollercoaster anyway.
Yeah, my life is just an image of a rollercoaster anyway.

    General CommentFor me, every EBTG album starting with Amplified Heart has been outstanding, and a welcome break with EBTG's earlier jazz-pop sound. This song is the first salvo, and an outstanding one it is, as is true of the opening tracks of Walking Wounded (Before Today) and Temperamental (Five Fathoms).

    This is a simple but powerful song. In contrast to other songs about not being able to move on (Missing, Two Star, Am I Walking To You), 1) I think this one is about the period soon after the end of a relationship, and 2) it contains a ray of optimism (this is my road to my redemption).

    However, one thing that's similar about these three songs is that they're from the perspective of the person who was more dependent on the friendship (Missing: the years have proved to offer nothing since you moved) or relationship (Rollercoaster: I'm not really in your head; Walking to you: I met your boyfriend...; Two Star: go on, stop listening to me).

    I don't completely get the lyrics. "My life is just an image of a rollercoaster" seems to mean "I'm having ups and downs", but "anyway" suggests "that's always been true and this love then breakup are no different".

    I love the lyric "falls to minus zero".
