Off Guard

Official Lyrics

Written by Shannon Hynes

A thousand miles, the plan was to be in his arms,

I ran away, just like I always run along.
It felt so right at the time,
It felt so right til I saw his eyes.


I said I miss him before I’d gone,
There I was dancing to old country songs.
He caught me off guard, when he came down those stairs.

Then I knew it, coz of how I felt right there.


Many drinks down, It would have felt so right,

But I know, It could only be one night.
My friends say, when you’re away,
What you’re feeling, I promise it’s fake.


I said I miss him before I’d gone,
There I was dancing to old country songs.
He caught me off guard, when he came down those stairs.

Then I knew it, coz of how I felt right there.


Don’t go there.
I blew it.
Don’t go there.
I had my chance.


I said I miss him before I’d gone,
There I was dancing to old country songs.
He caught me off guard, when he came down those stairs.

Then I knew it, coz of how I felt right there.
Then I knew it, coz of how I felt right there.
Then I knew it, I missed him right there.
