Rollercoaster,
Montaña rusa,

carousel.
tiovivo,
00:34
Where the highs are heaven,
Donde las alturas son el cielo,
00:40
but the lows,
pero los puntos bajos,
00:43
oh, they can be hell.
oh, pueden ser el Infierno.
00:44
You can grab the ring,
Puedes agarrar el aro,
00:47
you can ring that bell,
puedes hacer sonar esa campana,
00:50
when the ride is over,
cuando el viaje ha terminado,
00:54
you can never tell.
nunca hay forma de saber.
00:58
People tell you this one thing --
La gente te dice que una sola cosa...
01:03
will make your life complete.
hará que tu vida sea completa.
01:07
So you,
Así que tú,
01:10
you give it everything you got
te empleas a fondo
01:11
and you wind up on the street.
y terminas tirada en la calle.
01:14
Then one day you wake up,
Entonces un día te despiertas,
01:19
and they tell you "you're a queen,"
y te dicen 'eres una reina',
01:23
but then you find that someone else
pero luego descubres que es otra persona
01:27
is pulling on the strings.
la que tira de los hilos.
01:31
Rollercoaster,

01:45
oh, they can be hell.
oh, pueden ser el infierno.

The one you love,

02:05
they love you --
te quiere a tí...
02:07
oh yeah --
oh sí...
02:08
until the end of time.
hasta el final de los tiempos.
02:10
But lose your edge or lose your cool,
Pero si pierde la ventaja o la calma,
02:13
they will drop you like a dime.
te descartarán como a calderilla.
02:16
Everyone is crowding 'round
Todos congregan a tu alrededor
02:21
when fortune is your friend.
cuando la fortuna es tu amiga.
02:25
When your luck is running out,
Cuando tu suerte se acaba,
02:29
you're all alone again.
vuelves a estar sola otra vez.
02:33
Rollercoaster,

nunca hay forma de saber.
03:02
Well, maybe I'm just cynical,
Bueno, tal vez sólo sea una cínica,
03:07
and all these words are lies,
y todas estas palabras sean mentiras,
03:11
but experience keeps telling me
pero la experiencia me sigue diciendo
03:15
that the cautious one is wise.
que quien es cautelosa es sabia.
03:18
But caution makes you hesitate,
Pero la cautela te hace dudar,
03:23
and hesitate you're lost,
y si dudas estás perdida,
03:27
so take your opportunities
así que aprovecha tus oportunidades
03:31
and never count the cost.
sin importar nunca el coste.
