Roller Coaster Lyrics by Luke Bryan


Luke Bryan Lyrics

Roller Coaster Lyrics
She had a cross around her neck
And a flower in her hand
That I picked from the side of Thomas Drive
On our way to the sand
We found an old wooden chair
Still warm from the sun
Pushed it back, gave me a kiss with Bacardi on her lips
and I was done

And we spent that week wide open
Upside down beside the ocean
I didn't know where it was goin'
Just tryin' to keep my heart on the tracks
I should've known that kind of feelin'
Would last longer than that week did
Blown away and barely breathin'
Sunday came and it was over
Now she's got me twisted
Like an old beach roller coaster

The rest of those days
Turned into long crazy nights
When the music got loud
We'd sneak away from the crowd under the boardwalk lights
And with all the things we said
What I just can't get past
Is the way we let it end
Now I'm wonderin' where she is
Knowin' I can't get that goodbye back

And we spent that week wide open
Upside down beside the ocean
I didn't know where it was goin'
Just tryin' to keep my heart on the tracks
I should've known that kind of feelin'
Would last longer than that week did
Blown away and barely breathin'
Sunday came and it was over
Now she's got me twisted
Like an old beach roller coaster

She's like a song playin' over and over
In my mind, where I still hold her
I had the chance and I should've told her

When we spent that last week wide open
Upside down beside the ocean
I should've known where it was goin'
Still tryin' to keep my heart on the tracks
And I should've known that kind of feelin'
Would last longer than that week did
Blown away and barely breathin'
When Sunday came and it was over
Now she's got me twisted, yeah, I'm still twisted
Like that old beach roller coaster

Like that old beach roller coaster

Roller Coaster Info:

• Luke Bryan explained: "It has all the levels of going back to young love and that feeling of sitting on the beach and young love that you lost, that you've let slip through your hands."

"And so many people have done that, and the way they hook it, 'girl, you've got me twisted like an old beach rollercoaster,' is just when you hear that line snap down in me, it's just chill bump city, a visual city. You could see them living that scene of having to part ways with one another. Man, it's powerful!"

• He added: "The first time I heard it, it was one of the first songs that I knew would be on Crash My Party. I listened to it, and it just floored me – the visuals of it, and obviously the fact that I grew up going to the beach – and the guys who wrote it, Michael Carter and Cole Swindell, have been in my life for years."
