James Keogh (born 1 December 1987), better known as Vance Joy, is an Australian singer-songwriter. Joy signed a five-album deal with Atlantic Records in 2013. He released his debut EP God Loves You When You're Dancing in March 2013. His song "Riptide" was voted number 1 on the 2013 Triple J Hottest 100.

In an interview, Vance Joy said the title of the song came from a motel of the same name he used to go to with his family when he was a child.

In 2008 and 2009, Joy played for the Coburg Football Club in the Victorian Football League (VFL), winning their best first year player award in 2008. He eventually gave up football to pursue a music career.

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 dream
Oh, and they come unstuck

Lady running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I want to be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song
And I got a lump in my throat
Because you're going to sing the words wrong

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

Lady running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I want to be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song
And I got a lump in my throat
Because you're going to sing the words wrong

I just want to, I just want to know
If you're going to, if you're going to stay
I just got to, I just got to 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 want to be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat
Because you're going to sing the words wrong

Oh lady running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I want to 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 going to sing the words wrong

Oh lady running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I want to be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song
And I got a lump in my throat
Because you're going to sing the words wrong
I got a lump in my throat
Because you're going to sing the words wrong
