Lyrics

(Quealy,Gullbergh)

She packed up all the pictures
And that broken dial phone
19 years since daddy passed
She’s lived here on her own
Needs a little help right now and
We got room since the kids moved out
She looked back at that old brick house
She’s always called home
In a whisper, She sang this little song

Steady as She Goes; keep on breathing
Hold your head up; don’t look down
Take it slow; take a look around
Something new is waiting down the road
Steady as She Goes

Had a flashback to the bus stop
My first day of school
When I told her she could leave me there
I was tryin to play it cool
I said I’m not scared but I lied
I turned around to hide my eyes
When she gave me a kiss goodbye
Before she walked away
In a whisper I could hear her say

Steady as She Goes; keep on breathing
Hold your head up; don’t look down
Take it slow; take a look around
Something new is waiting down the road
Steady as She Goes

She always knew me better than I ever knew myself
Now she looks at me just like we’ve never met
Her laughter I recall with bittersweet regret
Now she knows she can’t remember
I know I can’t forget

Steady as She Goes; keep on breathing
Hold your head up; don’t look down
Take it slow; take a look around
She’s fading now but how her eyes still glow
Like something new is waiting down the road
I’ve got to stay
I’ve got to stay
Steady As She Goes
