Riptide
Vance Joy Lyrics


I was scared of dentists and the dark
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Oh, all my friends are turning green
You're the magician's assistant in their dreams

Ah-ooh
Ah-oh, and they come unstuck

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
You're gonna sing the words wrong

Here's this movie that I think you'll like
This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
This cowboy's running from himself
And she's been living on the highest shelf

Ah-ooh
Ah-oh, and they come unstuck

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
You're gonna sing the words wrong

I just wanna, I just wanna know
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay
I just gotta, I just gotta know
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way
I swear she's destined for the screen
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
You're gonna sing the words wrong

Oh, lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
You're gonna sing the words wrong

Oh, lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
You're gonna sing the words wrong and
I got a lump in my throat 'cause you're gonna sing the words wrong

@Joe Cannabyte Gen-x, and millennials that didn't have their heads up their butts saw the stuff you were doing bro bro. At the time it was all over YouTube and the internet. I remember the Iraqi sniper videos, used to make my blood boil. I did get nightmares.

I remember one of them vividly. This was when I really understood just how absolutely terrifying some situations were. Almost like astral projection my dream was so vivid....

I had just got in a Humvee and we started driving away from the base at night, I remember I was having an anxiety attack from the thought of likely running into an IED AT ANY POINT. Right at that moment I was staring out the side Humvee window and a bullet struck the window and took a big chunk out of it but didn't go through, and I woke up in a freaking sweat having an anxiety attack almost. I have PTSD for other reasons so maybe that has something to do with it but I wasn't even there! But it felt real.

That dream all came from a picture I saw of a Humvee with a chunk out of its side window. The thought of someones face right there and just that glass saving you hit me so hard I dreamt about it.

Thank you brother, and just know this. It wasn't a waste. It was payback for 9/11 and you succeeded at that.

Screw the politicians.

This song makes me sad, nostalgic, happy, lonely, scared, confused, surprised, euphoric, empathetic at the same time
