Unsteady by Andrea May

“I wrote ‘Unsteady’ about a boy. I think that’s pretty obvious, but it came to me as I was trying to explain to my friends how I felt about him. I couldn’t gather the words, so naturally I wrote a song instead. I know in many cases being unsteady can be a negative thing, but in this song I see it in a positive light. Being unsteady is a beautiful thing, and to be made unsteady by someone means to be vulnerable to them and allow them to impact you in that way. This guy who made me so unsteady, I honestly never even saw him coming. It took me by surprise, and that’s why the impact was as great as it was.”
Verse 1:You come close
Just enough to watch me come undone
You step, close the gap between us
And I unravel at your touchI knew I was falling for you
Oh, I hope I’m not the only one


You make my knees weak
Got me losing sleep
Boy, you make me unsteady
So comfortable
But completely unexpected
You keep me unsteady

Verse 2:

You come close
Leave me breathless when you hold me tight
You make me miss things
I never even knew I was missing

I knew I fell for you
Please say I’m not the only one

*Repeat Chorus*


These hands were meant to hold you
Perfect in the palms of your hand
These arms were meant to wrap around
around your waist
These lips were made to spill my secrets

So you know every part of me
So you know how to make me unsteady

*Repeat Chorus*
