Conway Twitty — Steady As She Goes lyrics

I thought she'd never sail away
I thought her love was here to stay
I thought my arms were her safe harbor
But today a storm came up
And I'm about to lose her love
Leavin' me in troubled water
When she's gone I'll break apart
But 'til then I'll tell my heart.

Steady as she goes.
It's a hurtin' wind that blows.
You're sinking like a stone.
But heart keep holdin' on.
Steady as she goes.

Heart don't let her know.
Don't let your feelins' show
'Til she's completely gone.
Steady as she goes.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/conway-twitty-steady-as-she-goes-lyrics.html ]
While she sails to someone else
I'll just keep it to myself
That I'd give anything to keep her
I can't change the changin' tide
I can't change her changin' mind
And tears just make the ocean deeper
'Til she's forever out of sight
I'll tell my heart to hold on tight.

Steady as she goes.
It's a hurtin' wind that blows.
You're sinkin' like a stone
But heart keep holdin' on.
Steady as she goes.

Heart don't let her know.
Don't let your feelins' show
'Til she's completely gone.
Steady as she goes.

Steady as she goes.
Heart don't let her know.
Don't let your feelins' show
'Til she's completely gone.
Steady as she goes...
