Icon for Hire – Blindside Lyrics

Blindside By Icon for Hire

I’ve been underestimated my whole life
Can play it on the quiet side but I’m not shy
Maybe I’m the flower painted on the wall
Maybe I’m the number that you never call

I’ve been waiting in the shadows way too long
Saving up my punches while I bite my tongue
I’m about to strike, gonna leave a mark
Take a seat, the show’s about to start

You won’t see me coming
But you’re gonna know
When I show up, show up
Gonna make your head spin, make you listen
Yeah you will know my name
From the shadow, to the spotlight
From the background, to the front lines
I’m a fire about to ignite, out of nowhere
Gonna hit you, gonna hit you in your blindside
Gonna hit you, gonna hit you in your blindside
Gonna hit you, gonna hit you

Feeling like a viper, finally shed my skin
Bet you didn’t know I had it from the outside in
Counting down the hours, careful where you are
Watch your back, the show’s about to start

You won’t see me coming
But you’re gonna know
When I show up, show up
Gonna make your head spin, make you listen
Yeah you will know my name
From the shadow, to the spotlight
From the background, to the front lines
I’m a fire about to ignite, out of nowhere
Gonna hit you, gonna hit you in your blindside
Gonna hit you, gonna hit you in your blindside
Gonna hit you, gonna hit you

Blindside, in your blindside
You’ll never know it’s coming til it hits you
In your blindside, in your blindside
You’ll never know it’s coming til it hits you
In your blindside, in your blindside
You’ll never know it’s coming til it hits you
In your blindside, in your blindside
You’ll never know, never know, never know

You won’t see me coming
But you’re gonna know
When I show up, show up
Gonna make your head spin, make you listen
Yeah you will know my name
From the shadow, to the spotlight
From the background, to the front lines
I’m a fire about to ignite, out of nowhere
Gonna hit you, gonna hit you in your blindside
Gonna hit you in your blindside
In your blindside
