Foy Vance - Only The Artist Lyrics

Montague and Capulet
Already sets the scene
I knew you were a foolish bet
But it was better to beg than bleed

From the very first night we met
You made me love you and I never should have left you
Romeo and Juliet
Nothing but a writer's dream

I remember the time when you told me baby
Love is a work of art
I saw you scanning the corners of the canvas
Just like you didn't know where to start
I can't imagine the portrait you were painting
When you saw me looking so alone, oh no
That's something only the artist could know

By the coast when I held your hand
Feels like a distant dream
I knew I was a foolish man
But I was caught up in a fantasy
You held my face and you gently kissed
But all it told me was how much you'd miss me
Romeo and Juliet
Always bound to call a scene

    Started listening to Foy a while back when I came across his version of "Purple Rain" and have enjoyed everything he has brought out ever since.
    He is a fantastic musical artist and a song writing genius!

    You should check out Foy's version of Hallelujah, that's an experience that everyone walks away that much better for having experienced it. Cheers 🍻.
