"My Yvonne" is the ninth track from Jack Peñate's debut album, Matinée featuring backing vocals from a then unknown Adele. Adele is not credited as a featured artist on the song; however, she is credited as a backing vocalist in the album's booklet.

"My Yvonne" first appeared on Peñate's 2007 Spit at Stars EP before it was released on his debut album.[1] This was the first of two songs in which Adele would provide backing vocals for Peñate, the second being "Every Glance."[2]

LyricsEdit

Boy in love, I wish that I was Meaulnes
Look above and watch your window glow
Feed the past even though I'm grown
Love can last, it never truly goes

So I sit and I wait, still I can't navigate to your castle
Home in a forest, overgrown
So I sit and I wait, still I can't navigate to your castle
Home in a forest, overgrown

My Yvonne, my Yvonne
My Yvonne, my Yvonne
My Yvonne

Through the years
We lost each other's souls
Through the years
So much to be resolved

So I sit and I wait, still I can't navigate to your castle
Home in a forest, overgrown
So I sit and I wait, still I can't navigate to your castle
Home in a forest, overgrown

My Yvonne, my Yvonne
My Yvonne, my Yvonne
My Yvonne
