Track Name: Steady
In the hull of this ship, there's a home that we've built
Myself and each soul of this crew.
And 'most every night by the oil lamp light,
I still think of you.

The calm, quiet weather, it held us together,
but the skies, they soon changed their hue.
And in the black of the night, you vanished and I
was still in love with you.

Steady as she goes.
There are those that stay with us through each ebb and flow.
They are the ones we call home.
Steady as she goes.

You drifted away on tumultuous waves,
and your heart upon each new wind blows.
I'll never forget, in your wake what you left.
Steady as she goes.

A piece of a man who could not understand
what would make you go,
While others who came through the same storm remained,
All you left were your clothes.

Steady as she goes.
There are those that stay with us through each ebb and flow.
They are the ones we call home.
Steady as she goes.

There comes a time in all of our lives
When we find out of what we are made.
In a sea of lost causes and all of these flaws
is there anything worth being saved?

Some stars shine bright, may not shed guiding light,
but delay us from courses outlaid.
But there are those, there are those
compasses that have remained.

Steady as she goes.
There are those that stay with us through each ebb and flow.
They are the ones we call home.
Steady as she goes.

I remember you.
You couldn't hold on, you drifted away,
Well, I've done the same to a few.
Oh oh oh... I remember you.
There's no one to blame, but the wind and the rain,
there was nothing you could do.
And we'll find our own way home.

Steady as she goes.
There are those that stay with us through each ebb and flow.
They are the ones we call home.
Steady as she goes.

Steady as she goes.
