Melissa Polinar Catches Us “Off Guard” with New Music

We’re always pretty excited to hear new material from the smoky voiced Melissa Polinar. “Off Guard” is a tune she wrote just a few weeks back, so it can’t get much newer than that. Polinar sounds as great as ever, and we continue to witness her growth as a song writer. The track is available for purchase from her Bandcamp page. Here’s to hoping she can get in the studio with Jesse Barrera again soon to lay this down proper.

“Off-Guard”
(polinar)
everybody says you’re amazing
tell me what I don’t know and
what I love about you is you’re real

everyday I think that I’m dreaming
where did all the rain go
and its taking me awhile to see what’s real

i had my head down
but when you came around
I knew there was life ahead
beyond what’s in front of me

chorus:
hey now
thought i had it all figured out
but honey, you caught me off guard
and I had all these walls
ready to push you out
but honey, you caught me
caught me off guard

I never needed a rescue
not a dame in distress
’cause all I want is a love I can see-through
sweet-nothings are nothing
when there’s absolutely nothing
for me to hold on to

i had my head down
but when you came around
I knew there was life ahead
beyond what’s in front of me

bridge:
i’m tired of pretending
I’m slowly comprehending
I want to…I want to be with you
