  • Nights, flying down the 10, nearly 2 AM
    Happiness begins
    Days lifted in a haze, we weren't just a phase
    We weren't just pretend (just pretend)

    I remember low lows and high highs
    We threw our hands up, palms out to the skies

    It was fun when we were young and now we're older
    Those days when we were broke in California
    We were up-and-down and barely made it over
    But I'd go back and ride that roller coaster
    It was fun when we were young and now we're older
    Those days that are the worst, they seem to glow now
    We were up-and-down and barely made it over
    But I'd go back and ride that roller coaster with you

    Woo ooh ooh, woo ooh
    Woo ooh ooh (oh, oh)
    But I'd come back and ride that roller coaster

    Faith led me to the clouds, reaching for the ground
    His life was upside down
    Now everything has changed, we found better days
    But I still hear the sound

    I remember low lows and high highs
    We threw our hands up, palms out to the skies

    It was fun when we were young and now we're older
    Those days when we were broke in California
    We were up-and-down and barely made it over
    But I'd go back and ride that roller coaster
    It was fun when we were young and now we're older (oh)
    Those days that are the worst, they seem to glow now (yeah)
    We were up-and-down and barely made it over
    But I'd go back and ride that roller coaster with you

    Woo ooh ooh (yeah, with you)
    Woo ooh (with you, with you)
    Woo ooh ooh (oh, oh)
    But I'd go back and ride that roller coaster

    It was fun when we were young and now we're older
    Those days that are the worst, they seem to glow now
    We were up-and-down and barely made it over
    But I'd go back and ride that roller coaster
