Vance Joy: Straight Into Your Arms

Vance Joy has an original voice which at first he kept to himself. Feeding on a diet of The Pogues, Paul Kelly, and whatever else was playing, he cut his teeth performing at open mike nights in Melbourne. It is folk music with pop influences. His songs capture the familiar pulse of everyday experiences in a unique and celebratory manner. His lyrics will reach out to you and hold on for a moment.

After dodging the camera for the first leg of his recording career, Vance Joy is staring down the barrel for the cover of his long-awaited debut Dream Your Life Away. No more arty blurs, or in the case of the Riptide video, being totally MIA. “You can see people’s personalities in their eyes,” Vance Joy says. “You can tell if someone is really feeling the song they’re singing. I wanted to have a straight on direct ‘look into my eyes’ moment for this album cover. If I’m going to regret anything it’s not going to be that my face looks like my face. People can like it or not like it, but I won’t look back and go I shouldn’t have been wearing that hat or anything.” Vance Joy has had an unexpectedly long time to finish his debut album. There’s a simple reason why – his first single “Riptide” kept charming the world and its charming author followed it around the globe. Several times over.

Vance Joy: Straight Into Your Arms Lyrics:
Walk in the front door, drop my keys
Take my shoes off and go
Straight into your arms; keep me safe
I don’t feel like myself
I been waiting to go
Straight into your arms; keep me safe

Ooh, I’ve been gone since yesterday
And I fell straight, straight into your arms
Ooh, but it only takes one day
And I run straight, straight into your arms
Straight into your arms
Straight into your arms, straight into your arms

You keep me on track
I can’t sleep ’til you come back home to me
Into my arms, baby
So let’s make the best of what we have
Time is precious; it won’t last
I see you and I get back

Ooh, I’ve been gone since yesterday
And I fell straight, straight into your arms
Ooh, but it only takes one day
And I run straight, straight into your arms
Straight into your arms
Straight into your arms, straight into your arms

And I’ve been waiting, I’m waiting
My heart is calling, it’s calling

Ooh, I’ve been gone since yesterday
And I fell straight, straight into your arms
Ooh, but it only takes one day
And I run straight, straight into your arms
Straight into your arms
Ooh, I’ve been gone since yesterday
And I fell straight, straight into your arms
Ooh, but it only takes one day
And I run straight, straight into your arms
Straight into your arms, straight into your arms
