"Rocksteady" as written by and Alton Neamiah Ellis....
Tell me how, baby
Could it open my eyes
For the night
It took me by surprise
Oh what you said to me

Love me do
Whatever you want back darlin' won't be good
That is why I woke and cried out

Rocksteady can't break my world
Nobody's gonna ever think twice
Oh how I, how I often try
Rocksteady can't make that change
Nobody's gonna ever rearrange (oh yeah)
As time moves slippin' fast
Love just won't become you

Now my mind, baby
My mind is free
Oh you played it hard, lady
So hard and deep
Oh when you said to me

Love me do
Whatever you want back darlin' won't be good
That is why I woke and cried out

Rocksteady can't break my world
Nobody's gonna ever think twice
Oh how I, how I often try
Rocksteady can't make that change
Nobody's gonna ever rearrange (oh yeah)
As time moves slippin' fast
Love just won't become you (Repeat x3)

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who put his career, or you could say his love of music over his woman. She eventually got fed up and left him, and he's saying all these changes are what split them

    General Commenti agree with rick on this song, but it could also mean that he's actually living life now, and maybe he's realized that there is more to life than love, he doesn't have to worry about his gf just living life, he's doin what he loves, playing music and keeping fans like us happy and satisfied.

    General CommentSounds like he can't be with the woman for some reason, like he has other obligations.
