​Coming Off the Ropes

This song is by Chris Rea and appears on the album The Road To Hell: Part 2 (1999).

I'm coming off the ropes
(He's going down)
He thinks I'm beat
I'm coming off the ropes yeah
This ain't no retreat
He thinks I'm going down
For sure my head is spinning round
When I straighten up
But I'm going to knock him off his feet!
(Wow suckerpunch!

I'm coming off the ropes
(He's going down)
Yes I'm coming off the ropes

I'm coming off the ropes
He made me angry now
I only need to straighten up
I'm going to show him how
I can hear someone count to ten
Seems like a lifetime,
But I'll tell you when
I know I'm safe down here
So till then, must have been
A lucky swing
Two years ago,
I would have not let him in

I'm coming off the ropes
(He's going down)
