Brian McArdle & Wry Toast: Music

Steady As She Goes

(Brian McArdle)
Verse
If we were in the same boat the wind would catch our sails
But we’re like ships that pass at night when a cold, hard wind prevails
I won’t say it’s over, she already knows
Even though my heart is breaking, I’ll be steady as she goes

Verse
I can’t keep this love afloat so I’ll keep an even keel
Though the tides of time turn love away and rock a heart of steel
I’ve got a sinking feeling that I don’t want to show
Even though my heart is breaking, I’ll be steady as she goes

Bridge
Now the wake she leaves, washes over me
As she sails out of sight
She’s leaving me adrift at sea
Still I think I’ll be all right

Verse
The harbor lights are shining on this lonely little town
It’s easy to feel lost here and run your soul aground
As she heads for that horizon, anywhere the four winds blow
Even though my heart is breaking, I’ll be steady as she goes
