Foy Vance - Regarding Your Lover Lyrics




I was tired of
You telling me your leaving
Every time it came to blows
It's not enough
To say it when you mean it
And then pack your bags and go
And It was hard to be jealous
I'm supposed to be having the time of my life
Now let me say
I would rather have you than vaporize
By your lunar reflection in the sky
Love to be be girl?
But it's over now?
I just never dreamed it could come to that
Well,
Darling I'm not angry
I'm just a little bit confused
Well she just chose the jokes and the quotes of others
Though her eyes know nothing true
But still yet as you lie there,
May she find you in her arms
Has a killer soul, a burning coal,
It is both hard to hold, hard to put down
That's the way I held you
Though I never will again
Yours faithfully friend

    It's not enough
    To say it when you mean it
    And then pack your bags and go
    And It was hard to be jealous
    I'm supposed to be having the time of my life
    Now let me say
    I would rather had you been vaporised
    by a lunar reflection in the sky
    than to be beguiled by one so banal
    I just never dreamed it could come to that
    Well,
    Darling I'm not angry
    I'm just a little bit confused
    Well she just chose the jokes and the quotes of others
    Though her eyes know nothing true
    But still yet as you lie there,
    May she find you in her arms
    Has a killer soul, and a burning coal,
    It is both hard to hold, hard to put down
    That's the way I held you
    Though I never will again
    Yours faithfully friend

    retsamkcub it’s ‘I would rather had you been vaporised by a lunar reflection in the sky than to be beguiled by one so banal’

    passionate singing

  6. cinnamon slice

    Nice vocals.. Great track...👏👏👏👏🎶🎤🎵

  7. Glen M

    mends your soul a bit

  8. Filip Trela

    Love the 0:58 part. Why is it only used once throughout the song? Definitely the best bridge ever written.

    Dan Z

    Filip T he's one of those artists that you are thankful that they use their creativity in such a way that they leave you wanting more...they don't fatigue your ears ever

  9. sam seenan

    Class !!!!

  10. Johanna Miller

    Does any one know what tuning he is in?

    Phil Cotnoir

    +Anneliese Braun This song is in standard tuning I believe. At least that's the way I play it

    Daniel Aspinall

    +Anneliese Braun I believe it's a full step down, i.e. D, G, C, F, A, D

  11. Paddy Gardiner

    Brilliant performance from Foy!
    Anyone know what the vocal mic is? Don't recognise it.

    The Live Sessions

    It's our lovely CAD e300 https://www.soundonsound.com/sos/1997_articles/jun97/cadequitek.html

  12. Patrick Sampson

    So amazing, one day I hope to play a song with Foy!

  13. D G

    Chills.

  14. Nick Miller

    Back again because I love this performance. Question for your production people-- What lens is being used in the shot at 1:44? Looks like a 1.4 or a 1.8, but I just thought I'd ask :) Cheers! 

    The Live Sessions

    Thanks Nick glad you're enjoying this performance he truly is an incredible artist.
    Answer to your question the close up shots you see were shot on a 50mm 1.8 with a Canon 600d body.

    Nick Miller

    @The Live Sessions Thanks so much for the quick response! I had a feeling it was a 1.8. Keep up the fantastic videos.

  15. kada1988

    his voice is amazing....sends chills and makes the hairs stand up, if you get the chance to see him live don't miss it. I totally agree with Megan, a truly natural talent.

  16. Victor Hugo Ferreira

    This man made me cry.

  17. Brittany Harris

    I saw him play a few weeks ago in Georgia and had to drive 7 hours to see him. I went down to the merch table after the show and his manager was there. We told him how much we loved foy and his music. A little while later, Foy Vance himself was standing in front of me, an hour before he was supposed to come out. He spent an hour with us just talking and hanging out. It was the most incredible night. He is such an extraordinary talent and amazing person.

  18. Megan Lick

    Are you serious with this!?  where has he been all my life?  I've listened to this at least 20 times today, freaking amazing.  Such raw, natural talent.  Drool.

    The Live Sessions

    thanks for watching Megan, he really is an incredible artist. 

    Megan Lick

    @The Live Sessions Do you ever record in the States?  I'm releasing an album this summer, would be amazing to collaborate.

    The Live Sessions

    @Megan Lick We're based in London, would be amazing to come over to the US though, maybe some day!

  19. Nick Miller

    I can't imagine being in that room next to him. I bet you could literally feel the music. Incredible.

    The Live Sessions

    It was pretty incredible Nick, one of our favourite ever sessions and artists to have filmed. thanks for watching

  20. Faksakes

    Incredible, absolutely incredible.  

  21. Cynthia Granados

    I would love lyrics

  22. LemonHeights

    What a song! my word I'm blown away.

  23. The Live Sessions

    that's a super descriptive review right there and very much deserved.

  24. MikeeSings4You

    When i open my dictionary and look up the meaning of genius, 'Foy Vance' is all it says, and thats cool with me. :)

  25. Lane arndt

    damn, some of my favorite song-based music is this super-aching, hyper-melodic, non-strophic, linear chorus-less style of writing. what a powerhouse vocal performance and a huge sounding cedar jumbo guitar! awesome!

  26. The Live Sessions

    Same here, first saw him in a tiny venue in brighton back in 2008 and felt compelled to tell everyone about him every since.
    Glad you like the video, we have another one with him and also an interview on our channel. Check it out!

  27. The Live Sessions

    he was an extremely nice guy.

  28. The Live Sessions

    will have to second that! An amazing artist. To be in that small room filming a foot away from him was something we won't forget in a hurry!

  29. Raphael Garcia

    Come back to St. Louis Foy! One of the best artists to hear live :)

  30. Rachael De La Vega

    very nice guy if you meet him :) ,fantastic voice, great song, awesome album !!

  31. justcuzbrosky

    so damn good.
