"Rocksteady" as written by Shaznay Lewis and Greg Kurstin....
Our love is rock steady
Rock steady, rock steady
Our love is rock steady

Love is like a punishment
Home girl here to represent
So innocently you seem to come my way
While Tinkerbell and Cupid play
They sit there and laugh
I sit here and I can't believe my eyes
You found me at last
But wait and see how it'll agonize

[Chorus]
A real love survives a rock steady vibe
A real love survives a rock steady vibe

Rock steady, rock steady
Our love is so rock steady
Rock steady

Steady now, stop rocking it
It's a delicate environment
Retire the sleeping is a Shanti love
Be careful now don't wake it up
It's never gonna last
It's never gonna make it back alive
So how can we relax
I really hope that we will actually survive

[Chorus]

It's never gonna last
It's never gonna makes it back alive
So how can we relax
I really hope that we will actually survive

[Chorus]

Rock steady
Our love is so rock steady
Rock steady, rock steady

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship where two people are in love, and the woman (Gwen Stefani) in the relationship is telling the man to stop questioning their love. She is saying that they shouldn't read into it too much, but to take it for what it is. Like, they've made it this far, so stop trying to question it, i.e. "rock"-ing it. She's just glad they've met, she's not looking much farther into the future than that. She believes the love won't last, even though she hopes it will. She also seems to believe that their love goes up and down between problems and being just fine-"steady"-and that a real love can overcome even the biggest problems. I think this song is about her hopes that their love can survive the "rock steady vibe"-the not so steady, more or less turbulent times.

    General CommentLove is rocksteady, it's something that lasts and withstands almost anything. But that doesn't necessarily mean that it's easy to be in love, with love come so many doubts, questions, situations, and problems here and there. Regardless of it being rocksteady, it is very delicate. Any little thing that happens could damage and rock it and make one think "it's never gonna last," and "hope that it actually survives"...and it does when it is true love.

    General CommentThis song sort of describes how I feel about someone (who shall remain nameless.) I also agree with what the rest of you said about it.

    General CommentThis song acctually is very self explanitory when you think about it.
    It basically is trying to describe how one can feel insecure about their love because of the many problems they have. Shes basically saying that the only way they'll survive this is if they 'stop rocking it' because theyre in a 'delacate environment'. But she really hopes that through everything, their love will survive.

    Incorrect.

    "You found me at least/
    But we're too human to see the way we'll agonize"
