10. Play With Fire (God Loves You When You’re Dancing, 2013)

“After the quality of his CD/LP “Dream Your Life Away” where every song is a pleasure to listen to I stumbled on this EP that was NOT on iTunes so I decided to grab this song and 1 or 2 others. Do not mix up Vance Joy with ‘Foy Vance’ like I ALMOST did!”

9. Red Eye (Dream Your Life Away, 2014)

“I’ve been listening to this song for a long while now and I really love it! In my opinion, it’s about this relationship. It’s probably a dysfunctional one.
So the song begins with the boy telling us that he’s struggling to please the girl. He’s trying to read her mind since she won’t tell him what she wants and thinks.”

8. Who Am I (Dream Your Life Away, 2014)

“This was inspired by Irish Poet W.B Yeats’ 1899 poem The Wind Among the Reeds, particularity the line about laying your dreams down at someone’s feet and asking them to be careful they don’t crush them.”

6. Fire and the Flood (Dream Your Life Away, 2014)

“This tune of Fire And The Flood by Vance Joy is a musically moving indie rock song that appears to be about being in a romantic relationship with someone who means a great deal in one person’s life. I admit that I’m still making out the full meaning of the fire and flood but I’m guessing that the musical imagery of the two weather elements symbolizes the extreme closeness and strong bond that they share.”

5. First Time (Dream Your Life Away, 2014)

“In my opinion, this song is about his first true love and after spending the best moments together how they can grow apart with regrets about leaving each other”

3. From Afar (Wonderland: Music From The Hit Show (Volume 1) 2013)

“That moment when a song manages to bring back memories and all the strong emotions you carried in those memories. They hit you so hard you almost drown in them. To get exactly the feelings you had formulated and heard in words is a wonderful comfort.”

2. Mess Is Mine (Dream Your Life Away, 2014)

“This song developed into one of my all time favorites. The lyrics, the melody, basically everything here is awesome. Thank you for this great song, Vance Joy.”

1. Riptide (God Loves You When You’re Dancing, 2013)

“There is a definite folk song vibe to this song and I like it. I previewed some of the other songs on this album, but, I didn’t like them as much as this one. They sounded a bit tiresome as if you would get sick of them after listening a few times. This one however, works. I can’t really tell you what the difference is, but, I know I appreciate it.”
