Assunto:  Namoro fixo - Steady
 
Mensagem: 

     Eu diria que eu estou namorando fixo com uma pessoa (namorando fixo, como diriam nos anos 70 ou 80).

     Desse modo "steady" tem algo a ver lealdade/fidelidade no namoro/estar de "verdade" com alguém/estar levando o namoro á sério com alguém etc  (em contraposição com "ficar" de hoje em dia, ou de ter uma ''amizade colorida/relacionamento aberto" etc; de antigamente)

   

    Somebody steady can 'waver' (to somobody else now and then, or once in a blue moon...or not waver at all) but his/her feelings are really into somebody and just in this person. As in the music, true down to the core.

 

    OBS: In some other contexts be steady reliable, firm, in control of himself, etc. (as in steady as a rock).

Friends they call me on the phone

´Cause I´m steady, oooh, I'm steady
Talk about unhappy homes
´Cause I´m steady, oooh, I´m steady

Though I don´t like to let it show
I got troubles of my own
We push and pull and we fall apart (woah)
I´m not gonna die of a broken heart (nooo)
I just don´t want to stop and start
´Cause I´m steady, oooh, I´m steady

Day to day is so unsure
But I´m steady, oooh, I´m steady
I watch people crash and soar
But I´m steady, oooh, I'm steady

The more they try so hard to change
The more they stay the same
We push and pull and we fall apart (woah)
I´m not gonna die of a broken heart (nooo)
I just don´t want to stop and start

´Cause I´m steady, oooh, I'm steady
Ooh Yeah!

We´re faced with so much back and forth
I don´t need no ups and downs
We push and pull and we fall apart (woah)
I´m not gonna die of a broken heart (nooo)
I just don´t want to stop and start
´Cause I´m steady ooohhh
I´m steady oohhh oohhh oohhh
I´m steady

I’m just tryin’ to be a father, raise a daughter and a son
Be a lover to their mother, everythin’ to everyone
Up and at ‘em bright and early, I’m all business in my suit
Yeah I’m dressed up for success, from my head down to my boots
I don’t do it for money, there’s bills I that I can’t pay
I don’t do it for the glory, I just do it anyway
Providing for our future’s, my responsibility
Yeah I’m real good under pressure, being all that I can be
And I can’t call in sick on Mondays when the weekend’s been too strong
I just work straight through the holidays, and sometimes all night long
You can bet that I stand ready, when the wolf growls at the door
Hey I’m solid, hey I’m steady, hey I’m true down to the core.
