it's a nautical term that means maintain the course youre on and Ease up means exactly that. it's not a pirate song, it came out of the blue when i was rehearsing. i know it kinda starts out dark but it has a happy ending. Plug yer ears and give me all ye got, good or bad okey?


Stay the Course

She dropped down to her knees
Her heart full sore and battered,
Her tearful eyes turned to the sky
With spirit torn and tattered.

I haven’t got the strength, she said
I can’t go any further.
If you’ve any compassion left,
Let me go, let me sink under.

No, came a gentle voice,
From somewhere in the darkness.
Look to the North Star, she heard it say,
Ease up and Stay the Course

Stay the Course, it will work out
True love you’re sure to find.
Stay the Course, be patient.
You will find peace in time.

His worries and his hopes for change,
And only proven constant.
He wasn’t sure just what to do,
Or what he really wanted.

Stop, he heard; he whirled around
But found no one was there
Be patient, listen to your heart
Ease up and Stay the Course.

Stay the Course it will work out
True love you’re sure to find
Stay the Course, be patient
You will find peace in time

They met, these two, on down the road
Love bloomed on that first kiss
He knows it’s by his side she’ll stay
She’s never known a love like this

Stay the Course it will work out
True love you’re sure to find
Stay the Course, be patient
You will find peace in time

All I can say is...You better not be lying! ;) :( :)

There's a great message in your song, deAnnalynn. I can think of a few people who may need to hear those same words. (Besides the guy who's naturally thought of when you come to this site. ;)...although he's welcome to listen.)

Keep it up,

Nash
