VANCE JOY - Riptide

This song is from the album Dream Your Life Away(2014).
I liked the production and the rhythm of the song. The guitar and the drums seem to have a special connection between them. The vocals are perfect and the bass guitar provides a nice groove to the song. Even though the song feels short, the bridge compensates for the length. Overall, a great song, with great production and lyrics.

[INTRO] Bbm Ab C# x2
[VERSE]
Bbm               Ab              C#
I was scared of dentists and the dark
Bbm               Ab               C#
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
    Bbm       Ab                C#
Oh, all my friends are turning green
              Bbm       Ab                C#
You're the magician's assistant in their dream

[PRE-CHORUS]
Bbm Ab C# Bbm Ab
Ooh ooh ooh ooh oh
             C#
And they come unstuck

[CHORUS]
Bbm     Ab                    C#
Lady, running down to the riptide
C#                 Bbm
Taken away to the dark side
Ab                 C#
I wanna be your left hand man
   Bbm      Ab                       C#
I love you when you're singing that song
C#                        Bbm
And I got a lump in my throat
        Ab                     C#
'Cause you're gonna sing the words wrong

[VERSE]
Bbm                Ab                  C#
There's this movie that I think you'll like
      Bbm           Ab                 C#
This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
     Bbm      Ab             C#
This cowboy's running from himself
    Bbm               Ab               C#
And she's been living on the highest shelf

Oh, and they come unstuck

[PRE-CHORUS]

Ooh ooh ooh ooh oh
             C#
And they come unstuck
