Knocked My Socks Off

At the door to a smoky bar room
You appeared just like in a dream,
Or maybe more like a mirage, you might as well have been because
You left just as quickly, it seemed.

You knocked my socks off, charmed my pants off,
And I gave you the shirt off my back.
Now I'm feelin' kind of cold, you would think that I was old enough
To fend off that kind of attack.


How did you melt through my armour?
Why did I let down my guard?
You left me defenseless and shaken,
I'd rather be feathered and tarred.

You knocked my socks off, charmed my pants off,
And I gave you the shirt off my back.
Now I'm feelin' kind of cold, you would think that I was old enough
To fend off that kind of attack.


Used to be such a strong person
Always stood my ground,
I was the one in power,
Never the other way around.


Come back to me to prove I'm not crazy
I can't stand to feel this weak.
Come back so I can prove I don't love you
Show you I can turn the other cheek.

You knocked my socks off, charmed my pants off,
And I gave you the shirt off my back.
Now I'm feelin' kind of cold, you would think that I was old enough
To fend off that kind of attack.
