Wetin I see for this life plenty (I have seen so much in this life.)

I keep am for my belly (Rollercoaster) (I kept it in my belly (Determined or not letting out what he faced.))

People be like, any (Rollercoaster)

My life now, rollercoaster

Verse 2 (J Balvin)

Como todo sube, tambien baja (Things go up and down)

Pero la vida me protege de las malas (But, life protects me from bad things.)

A veces creo que yo soy la hierba mala ( Sometimes, I think I am a bad weed.)

Porque no muero aunque me tiren muchas balas (I can’t die even if many bullets are fired at me.)

Y que me duela para recordar que estoy vivo (Does it hurt to see that I’m alive.)

Que me la gozo pero también la he sufrido (I enjoy life, but, I have also suffered.)

Que ni la fama ni las ganas calman el frío (Neither fame or desire can pacify the chills.)

Y la sonrisa de mi hijo me quita el escalofrío. (My son’s smile takes my chills away.)

De mis emociones, Muchas palabras pero pocas las acciones (My emotions; full of many words but few actions.)

Ya no vivo pendiente de las opiniones (I no longer live life dependent on opinions.)

Ya me resbalan, Solo quiero hacer canciones. (They make me tumble. I just want to make songs.)

De mis emociones, Muchas palabras pero pocas las acciones (My emotions; full of many words but few actions.)

De Medellín para el mundo (From Medellin to the world.)

Dímelo si sientes que te ofendí (If you feel that I have offended you, tell me.)

No siempre puedo estar feliz (I can’t always be happy.)

La gente está encima de mí (People are on top of me.)

Si arriba estás (If you are at the top, you are rollercoaster)
