alt-J - Matilda Lyrics

This is from, this is from
This is from Matilda

Just like Johnny Flynn said
The breath I've taken and the one I must to go on
Put the grenade pin in your hand, so you understand who's boss
My defeat sleeps top to toe with her success

Oh, this is from, this is from, this is from Matilda
And she needs you, this is from Matilda
And she needs you, this is from Matilda

Just like Johnny Flynn said
The breath I've taken and the one I must to go on
Put the grenade pin in your hand, so you understand who's boss
My defeat sleeps top to toe with her success

Oh, this is from, this is from, this is from Matilda
And she needs you, this is from Matilda
And she needs you, this is from Matilda
And she needs you, this is from Matilda

Elle a besoin de toi,
Cela vient de Matilda

And she needs you, this is from Matilda
And she needs you, this is from Matilda
And she needs you, this is from Matilda
And she needs you, this is from Matilda

This is from Matilda
This is from Matilda
Matilda, Matilda, Matilda

  18. Nicachu

    here because of Leon the Professional ♡

  19. Obscure Mars

    Half these people here talking about Leon,probably were born after the film was made. We watched it in the 90s because it was just another one of those good films you watched (e.g. killing Zoe, Reservoir of Dogs, True Romance, etc.).

  20. Samuel Lim

    I’ve been listening to that song almost everyday since it came out in 2012. Somehow it helped to go through my hard times during highschool and even to this day. That song means a lot to me, I’m definitly gonna name my daughter "Matilda"

  21. Bandaid Girl

    After hearing this song I wish my name was Matilda

  22. Jennifer Yah Robich

    If you haven't seen already, watch 'Leon the Professional' mate. It'll help!

  27. Mr. Prodigy

    this song makes me reminisce of the life I lost

  28. Datakamu

    que du bonheur ce son

  29. Adudewithachannel Lifeisgood

    Awesome, awesome song. 🙏

  30. Guilherme Alves

    Só quem editou jogador no PES sabe como é difícil..

  31. Shreyank Patel

    I watched Leon just to get a perspective for this song. And it was as good as this song.

  32. the red jellybean

    I want to see somebody recreate the ending of the professional in pavlov

  33. Sebastian Ramirez

  55. jet

    oh mathilda :(

  56. Misty Graham b

    To be honest when this comes on late at night when I'm just laying there with my eyes closed, it feels like someone is waking me up. It has a bitter sweet feeling as I open my eyes slowly and I imagine that person is laying infront of me, just staring back at me and smiling slightly. Then I blink and they disappear into thin air, and I sit up putting my hand where they were. This is either a flashback to some other time in a different place, or a glimpse of the future. Either way it leaves me feeling at peace with whatever it was, not sure if any of you people can relate but I just wanted to share my thought of the song.

  57. Kalle Nuppunen

    Of course when I first heard this I wondered where is the Matilda. Now, after more years, there is still no Matilda. You fooled me.

  58. naf is

    or just me

  59. Cosmo K

    If you press your nipple, the face changes in the video

  60. Irene Adler

    I was walking and whispering "and she needs youuuu this is for matilda " all the time and my bf yelled so ridiculously me where is the other part of the fucking song LOLLL

  61. John Kalama

    And she needs you. This is from my dildo.

  62. itz libz

  75. ana banana

    ok i love this song now, no discussion (hehe). it's the cool one.
    am i the only who doesn't see any sence in this face changing? i mean when i was searching the official video of the song i expected smth idk more meaning and with a kind of a message you know.
    so i'm a bit disapointed and rueful.
    i'm glad there are some good and even great leon amvs with mathilda song because it would be a total disaster if it doesn't.

    Don Birnam

    Ah sorry for your lose. Losing grandparents is always tough they are such loving people. Very powerful music. Take care my friend

  91. Brett Hackett

    I'd like to dedicate this song to Leon Kennedy's 9mm pea shooter in the RE2 remake. 10-11 headshots per zombie, Matildaaa 😫
