Song Lyric Sunday – Unsteady by X Ambassadors

I’ve heard at least one song by this band that I thought was okay, but it never really struck me enough to go look up more of their music.  I happened to hear this particular song on The Voice this week and it actually made me think of the prompt.

I’ve had an on-again off-again relationship with my parents over the years, but this year was a particularly hard one for my Mom and I.  I went through a few weeks where I considered whether I really wanted or needed either of my parents in my life.  It’s been a slow, steady process, but my Mom and I are making progress in a good direction.

This song really hit me and made me think of her.  She’s always been one person I could call when things were bad, even when I wasn’t sure about our relationship.  A few weeks ago, I had to leave work early because I was in so much pain.  The drive home was difficult and I wanted to talk to someone to help get me there.  My Mom wasn’t the first person I thought of, but she was pretty damn near close and she picked up on the second ring.

She talked to me the whole way home… I cried and we laughed and I made it home with her beautiful voice as my beacon through the pain.  So, Mom, this is dedicated to you.  I still need you, even now. ❤

Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Momma
Come here
Approach
Appear
Daddy
I’m alone
‘Cause this house don’t feel like home

If you love me
Don’t let go
If you love me
Don’t let go

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Mother
I know
That you’re tired of being alone
Dad I know you’re trying
To fight when you feel like flying

If you love me
Don’t let go
If you love me
Don’t let go

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

  1. Wow, when I read your words, you sound like me! Way too independent. When I listen to the words of the song you chose, I feel proud of you for reaching out. But I gotta say, watching that video? Haunting!!!
    So you have some context…Never met my biological father. My mother killed herself when I was 19. (She was 3rd stage alcoholic.) Had a step-dad that I did not know was AMAZING until well into adulthood. His influence probably saved me.
    Now I have to go find a song……..

  2. Wow. Family is such a complicated thing. I have always been super close with my parents, but this can backfire and has lately because I may be a grown woman in my thirties, but I am still their daughter and a blind daughter nonetheless. I am going traveling solo next month and they are extremely tense and apprehensive about the thought of it. Sometimes that can be hard too, but I hear so many stories of people with strained parent/child relationships, sibling issues, and so much more tensions. I can see how this song would make you sob. Sad.
    Also, I wasn’t too familiar with this one, so thanks, and fyi that one of the guys in this band has the same syndrome and eye condition as me. It’s quite rare. They are doing pretty well as a band these days. Cool.
