The person saying it relevant? If so, human? adult? male?
foot: the part of the body living things use to walk with?
it: is it something that can be seen? heard? experienced?
Would it have gone on forever if this person hadn't lifted his foot? would it have gone on for a while longer?
What was the time period in between the lifting of the foot and the ending--immediately? a few minutes? an hour? few hours? days? months? years?

Radio? Was the plug faulty, and you had to push your foot against the plug, so when you lifted it, the connection broke and it stopped working? something along those lines? Is it a performance of some kind? Is there singing involved? Talking?
Are you alone? With one person? With many people? Relevant where you are? At home? Indoors? Outdoors?

There's nothing to "bear with", you're doing perfectly fine! :-)

Was it rapping? Were you listening to an ipod? some other mp3 player?
Was your foot on something that was connected to the device? on the device itself?

Piano? Harp? Some other instrument with pedals? Was your foot on the forte pedal, sustaining the notes, so when you lifted your foot, the music ended?

Piano? This one! Harp? Some other instrument with pedals? Was your foot on the forte pedal, sustaining the notes, so when you lifted your foot, the music ended? YES!

You got it!
************SPOILER************
During a performance of our orchestra, the last note of the piece was played by me on the piano. It was sustained, and at the signal of the conductor, I lifted my foot from the pedal, and the music ended. Followed by an APPLAUSE by the audience, as in the title.

Pretty easy, huh? This was my first. :-)

Thanks everyone for playing! Actually, you're only 3 people. :D
