Creative Brief

As a kid growing up, I used to hear this phrase used a lot.  It stuck with me and helped me through the tough times.  As long as you are gaining ground keep on climbing.

Steady by Jerks (lyrics by Mitchel Miller)

One day you came by to say, man, you sure got it made
Next day you came by to say, now I’m gonna take it all away

Left with nothing left to gather and nothing left to gain
Asking myself, son, was it really worth all that pain

But I’m steady,
Ya, steady is who I am
I’m steady,
Trying to keep a steady hand
I’m steady
That’s the way life works
I’m steady, Steady by Jerks

Now I’m starin’ down a long road stretching to the west
Just A damn fool chokin’ on the taste of your bitterness

These days my blood runs way too dark and thick
From pining way too long for what we could’ve been


Thought I knew you
Thought you knew me too
Made plans based on
What I thought we knew
Only to find out
I never really knew you - at all

Still trying to do all that the preacher says is right
As I crawl hand over hand into the dark of night

With my back turned to a harsh northeast wind
Knowing’ it’s time for me to start it all over again
