alt-J - Lovely Day Lyrics




When I wake up in the morning light
Sunlight hurts my eyes
Something without warning, love
Plays heavy on my mind

Then I look at you [x5]
And the world's alright with me

Oh just one look at you [x3]
And I know it's gonna be
A lovely day
On the night line
For the night line

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you
And the world's alright with me

Just one look at you
And I know it's gonna be
A lovely day
On the night line
For the night line

  29. Aishwarya Pradhan

    This video made my day. You are very talented, and have done justice to this lovely cover.

  30. lou ta

  31. James Webber-Salmon

  32. james fitzpatrick

    I'm even singing lol goo on alt j :)

  33. james fitzpatrick

    only alt j can make it a lovely day i hated that song but now it's gonna be :)

  34. Stella Galo

    The girl sorta looks like Gal Gadot <3

  35. Gabrielle Chartier

    I cant help but picture this: a person with somewhat blurry vision's eyesight clearing up at the sight of their loved-one , even If just slightly , enough for them to feel reassured , that it will indeed be , a lovely day .them smiling kindly , basking in the sun that had previously hurt their eyes , at peace

  36. Gabrielle Chartier

    I listen to this song everynight to help me fall asleep ::) the video and song duo is very soothing .thank you for uploading this .I'm very grateful :) ♡♡♡

  37. Amit Ross

    Anyone knows where can i find this picture from the clip?
    High resolution...

  38. Raffis Jensen

  40. Liberty Prime

    Good take on a great song

  41. PkT

    Doing Bill Withers lyrics justice...

    And great job on the video and artwork....

  42. alien.sauvage

    i hate how they wrote than instead of then like noooooo

  43. Anna Buet

    Magnifique !!

  44. 18AnniCheppalle

    Reminds me Amsterdam :( <3 I miss it!

  45. Pleasurecop

    WORTHY.

  46. Baby Woof

    That’s incredible 😝

  47. Rohan Agarwal

    The lyrics in the video are just like Alt-J singing. You cant interpret what's written :D
    Great concept though

  48. Jamie Kendall

    Reminds me of Leah Bernal, anyone else? x

  49. valkyriechan

    it's pretty darn nice but i cannot get over the "than" rather than the "then." goddamnit. almost perfect. artists need to make sure things are spelled right. damnit. damnit.

  50. Herr Steppsch

    Is there like a Secret Album of alt-j? (Lovely day, Moonlight, etc )

    Gabriela Sélavy

    Well at least with this song, if you got the chance to buy a physical copy of This Is All Yours, the last song has Lovely Day as a hidden track. It's at the minute 12 of the song Leaving Nara. So there's no secret album, just hidden/feature songs I guess.

    james fitzpatrick

    Bonus track on album this is all yours album

  51. SekaKibo

    https://vimeo.com/242413565 here other music video of this song

  52. bogdanique

    Thank you very much for uploading - amazing cover! Where did you get it from? Greetings, B.

  53. WeekendWill

    Such a creative idea and so beautiful

  54. Jaygrl22

    i love this song and this video but I can't watch it too closely because the artist uses "than" instead of "then" and it drives me nuts

    Paul Birsan

    Don't worry that a goes well as an e too. Lets say he is not that great in handwriting.

  55. Franciska Kerosevick

    This is the reason why Alt- J is my favorite band. Creativity.

  56. Madi N

    ❤️❤️❤️

  57. Zuuzann Mitchelz

    channeling Radiohead

  58. CKATO

    beautiful

  59. Giulia Moncy

    Wow....

  60. Alice Caumo

    Does anyone here know how he posted this cover, if it needs some kind of autorization by altj or the original artist?

    N. Miller

    Alice Caumo It's not a 'he', I'm a she and youtube allowed me to post it.

    Alice Caumo

    N. Miller Aaaaa im truly sorry. Yeah, ive searched and found that copyright page of songs in youtube

    Brendan Weinstein

    The video is significantly creative enough on its own grounds that it probably qualifies as fair use.

  61. isabelle b

    This is astonishingly beautiful!! I love alt j but I had never listened to this cover. The cover is just awesome because well... It's alt j!!! And it gets even more awesome with your video. The drawing is so beautiful and the editing too! I LOVE IT

  62. Gurhan Altun

    wtf only 165.600 ?

  63. Tyisha Young

    lovely song dont mind listening.

  64. Miranda Vance

    reminds me of Radiohead

  65. Just Eivin

    first time i heard this song i was on acid. still gives me the most nostalgic feel. the goosebumps spread across my skin. and i take the deepest breath to make my self aware that the title has not lied to me once.

    moll u

    Just Eivin it’s really something else i listen to it every time it doesn’t get old so beautiful

    notthis prickagain

    Me too man I was looking for this song because of that reason. Best acid song there is

  66. Damian Ives

    I'm back.. Just too damn good

    Lyrics
    "Lovely Day"
    When I wake up in the morning, love
    And the sunlight hurts my eyes
    And something without warning, love
    Bears heavy on my mind
    Then I look at you
    And the world's alright with me
    Just one look at you
    And I know it's gonna be
    A lovely day
    ... lovely day, lovely day, lovely day ...
    When the day that lies ahead of me
    Seems impossible to face
    When someone else instead of me
    Always seems to know the way
    Then I look at you
    And the world's alright with me
    Just one look at you
    And I know it's gonna be
    A lovely day.....
    When the day that lies ahead of me
    Seems impossible to face
    When someone else instead of me
    Always seems to know the way
    Then I look at you
    And the world's alright with me
    Just one look at you
    And I know it's gonna be
    A lovely day......

    Liberty Prime

    Guilherme Brusantino

    @N. Miller you should be paid by alt-j for this

    Kyle

    @N. Miller Where can I find a big enough version to make into a print?

  90. Max Van Westerop

    Even though I adore Bill Withers, I've never really been able to stand this song of his. This on the other hand stirs my feelings in the most fruity way possible, absolutely adorable!

    Aeyiox

    that's funny because this is the only song i like by bill withers haha. i agree tho, this cover is amazing!

    Ana Dias

    Max Van Westerop it’s a terrible version.

  91. Antônio
