A child, finally takes his turn on a roller coaster.
How amazing she is.
Not because she's new.
Not because of the designs on her.
Or where he found her.
Or even how much it cost to ride.
Simply because finally, after waiting so long
She let him, of all people, inside.
Whatever happens now, it has to be worth it.
He doesn't have much time to get his bearings.
Even though he hasn't been here before
He knows what's up ahead.
All he can do, is prepare for it.
Up, up, up she lifts him...
Showing him the world,
Lifting him higher than he's ever been before...
Making him realize how hard he's about to fall.
His life, his trust, his everything...
Depends on how long he can hold on to her.
Because now he's falling...
And when he reaches the bottom...
Is when she takes him for the ride of his life.
She lifts him up
She drops him down
She sways him from side to side.
He's scared, he's amazed, he's enthralled
He wants to hold onto her forever.
He never wants it to end.
Sometimes he risks letting go...
Just to see how quickly she pulls him back in.
And she does, as he knew she would.
And he holds on even tighter.
But then the ride runs out of steam.
And he's left there, wondering if it will ever happen again.
But now he's in the exit lane.
And the wait at the entrance is getting longer by the minute.
He'll never feel it again at this rate.
So off he goes, in search of another roller coaster
That's waiting for someone like him to come inside.
My heart is a child
excited, scared, trusting, needy
Seeking those emotional roller coasters
In this giant theme park of love.
Don't be afraid to let him fall.
It only makes him hold on tighter.
Don't be afraid of boring him
He couldn't see you as boring, anyway.
Or taking him through something a few times over.
He never minded a little repetition...
As long as something was still there.
Because as soon as it STOPS...
As soon as he gets kicked off of the ride...
This childish heart goes off
another roller coaster,
waiting to let
