"Steady As She Goes" as written by and Adam R. Young....
Farewell nightmares I am free
Welcome streams of sweet dreams
That settles over me

What lies out there?
No one knows
The tide could bring in anything
So steady as she goes
Steady as she goes

I can feel her
As I lie awake
But she's back home
Still waiting alone
When morning breaks

Post war novels
Keep us alive
And I know she'll be dying to see me
When I arrive

Hey dear sister
How are you
I've long to see you ever since you made your stage debut

We always knew you would be
The most angelic actress this dramatic world would see
And the critics do agree

Several states lines
Keep us apart
And don't loose sleep
Cause I'll always keep you in my heart

Crashing white caps
Keep us alive
And she knows I'll be dying to see her the next time arrive

What lies out there?
No one knows
The tide could bring in anything
So steady as she goes
Steady as she goes
Steady as she goes

    General CommentAdam has quite an imagination...he doesn't have a sister! But I agree with masieono. And I think Sky Sailing is much more my style music than Owl City. I really prefer this and early Owl City to All Things Bright and Beautiful. Of course, that album is the right mixture to please a crowd. I liken Adam to an exotic fruit. Not many people have heard about or tried it, but most love it's sweet flavor after they do.

    General Commentsounds like it's about some gal who he is really close to is moving to go work at some type of acting job and he wants to go visit as soon as possible
    the sister part is meaning they are such good friends she is almost like a sister
