Lyrics

Love is like a roller coaster
Anyone can ride just get in line and wait your turn
If you’re careless you might take a fall
If you’re lucky, you’ll go up and down

You were always self-assured
Anyone could see that you were born into this world
But somehow understood it all
As if you rose out of the ground

Now none of that matters
As we toast the bride and groom
Pardon me while all my dreams get shattered
I was only late to bloom

Yea they say the waiting is the hardest part
It might have been too easy for this broken heart
Yea they say the waiting is the hardest part
But not for me

Love is like a ten-cent soldier
Anyone can buy it but it’s hard to keep around
And the longer that you hold it down
The more you might get out of it

You were always something strange
Anyone could see that you were constantly in change
Becoming what you found the world
Was missing, so you filled it up

Now none of that matters
As you dance across the floor
Pardon me while all my thoughts get scattered
Don’t know what I kept ‘em for

Yea they say the waiting is the hardest part
It might have been too easy for this broken heart
Yea they say the waiting is the hardest part
But not for me

This ain’t hard to understand
I kept quiet and you found another man
Took too long to make a stand
Patience ain’t a virtue unless things go as planned

Love is like a rolling thunder
You can feel it coming right before it shakes your bones
It’s already moved on but you still tremble
At the thought of it

You were always one step forward
I was right behind, and we were children in the wind
Arms wide open taking in
The world like it was something new

Now none of that matters
As your father gives his speech
Pardon me but I feel broken and battered
Like you were always out of reach

Yea they say the waiting is the hardest part
It might have been too easy for this broken heart
Yea they say the waiting is the hardest part
But not for me
