Roller Coaster

Buttoned up to the neck
Forget about me, forget about everything
You say I'm so "up tight" I can't come "unglued"
Well pardon me for being twenty-three
But living has become something of a necessity
Especially for me

The two of us were fine living completely separate lives
Please tell me what's changed!?
I know I've gotten a bit distant
I knew we were headed for disaster 
Since the day I told you loving you is like riding a roller coaster

Buttoned down, all the way down
Like an open night gown
Naked, raw & vulnerable
Is this what you wanted?
To see me in my weakest most in-defensive state!?

My heart skips a beat when you're near
I know what I want
And what I want is you lying naked in my bed
I need the touch of your body 
To quiet the pounding rhythm in my aching head.
