alt-J - Ms Lyrics




We can’t lose touch but we can let go, blue and white gun made from Lego.
All the vowels vow to hold your name, keep your estate clean of me.
I’ve pillowed you so many times this week,
Close eyes, open, close again, forget and fall asleep.
The dark seeks dark,
The dark seeks dark,
Darker,
Darker,

The nights of all my youth pressed into one glass of water.

Scattered truths, bewildered beast boohoos, we have our weight: ten thousand ladybirds.
All the vowels vow to guard your name, keep your estate clean, happy.
Some things lie too deep for tears to well,
Close eyes open, close again, feel as my body spells
Dark seeks dark,
Dark seeks dark,
Darker,
Darker,
The shadow burns across like embers tide paper.

Darker, darker, darker, darker.

    Phoebe Barnhart

    It gives me anxiety listening to the dark seeks dark part

    paxton sanchez

    Phoebe Barnhart same though

  23. Oh Its Nay

    For the people saying “for the people that came from TikTok you came for this time” your wrong I came to listen to the whole song

  24. lucy w

    someone make this the soundtrack to a movie or I will 😤

  25. ShrecksPickle

    Unpopular opinion: TikTok doesn’t ruin good songs, it helps interesting creators like Alt-j get the recognition they deserve and it gives people better music to listen to. Let everyone listen to a song weather they know the artist or not.

    Gubber Nubbets

    Nigga I dont even know you and I'm annoyed

    Amanda Rose

    I agree I can't get enough of this artist!

    sadie kini

    ShrecksPickle this is such an overused comment so it’s not unpopular😐

    KermitSuicide

    Gubber Nubbets why you mad?

    waifuwednsday

    Smart fellow

  26. alex loggins

    Why does this bring me so much sadness?

    CHROMIUM HERO

    idk man, for me I used to listen to this a lot when things were a lot simpler so it makes me miss older times

    la fille anonyme

    alex loggins same arg

  27. Ariel Negron

    This song gave me chills and goosebumps I have never felt something so euphoric I think this actually saved my life

    Jimmy Ross

    L lol you clearly don't live in LA or you'd now how the entertainment industry works. People who make music do it for money because it's a job. Not to save a life💀if you seriously think they care about you or ur feelings...ur fouling yourself.

    Emmalie k.

    Jimmy Ross how much joy do you get by doing that? Saying such things to people that are unstable. As you probably are because you feel the need to say that kind of thing to other people. I hope you heal and that you too, will get out of the place you are in now❤️❤️

    Phoebe Barnhart

    @Jimmy Ross SOMEONE has clearly never connected with a song so much that it changed their perspective or feelings about a subject or themselves. Back the fuck up and get off of your high horse. Just because you have never felt this way about a song and conncted with one like this does not mean that the person who wrote the comment is being dramatic. It means you're not being dramatic enough.

  28. Tensei 9

    This was my favorite song very long ago. I heard it in a TikTok and it felt like I just unlocked a whole section of my brain.

    Hannah Lake

    That's what good music does 😂 I know the feeling

  29. Annabeth Grey

    CHROMIUM HERO

    how can such a lovely song be used in tic tok, baffles me

    Vault Boy

    I'm not from tik tok im from America

    KermitSuicide

    Why does everyone hate tik tok so much

    CHROMIUM HERO

    @KermitSuicide https://youtu.be/EqiUxnVpkOc this is just one reason why

  32. ShrecksPickle

    If you’re from tiktok, like me, you came for 0:45

    Bitch Mel

    Jagan nigga you ain’t create the music. don’t choose who listens to it.

    Be gone

    Jagan u genuinely sound so stupid LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OK BOOMER like I didn’t ask for ur age I literally don’t care and my pfp has nothing to do with anything

    KermitSuicide

  36. Dylan Olson

    It's hard to believe that mortals on earth can make sounds like this. They are not lost after all.

    Only MyOpinion

  70. littlelovelittlelife

    I don't know what I'm doing with my life, I'm off and on again with so many people and I can't control my mood swings and I'm so stressed and I'm losing weight unintentionally and I can't eat without throwing up and I can't sleep and my periods are irregular. I don't know what to do, I'm lost and no one knows what is going on and I don't know what is happening and I just want closure and I don't know. I don't know.

    Dilbert Dunker

    littlelovelittlelife hey, I hope you are doing a little better now. I'm sure you've been confronted about this before but I would encourage you to seek Jesus. In the past, I had been suffering in a similar way as you, then I found Christ. I wouldn't be encouraging you to seek him unless i found improvements in my life. If you already do believe, grow in your faith and trust the lord. I promise you, he is there and he will hear your prayers. Be patient.

    Dilbert Dunker

    littlelovelittlelife you will be in my prayers

    Leah Isaac

    Don't cry. There's a garden of green just around the corner. I promise

    Leah Isaac

    Be kind to those around you. And be kind to yourself.

  78. Likhith Chandragiri

    What's this song about? And why is Ms the title?

    Joe Napoli

    Ms stands for Mrs without the r, Ms is the title given to a lady who is not married, I think this song is about divorce - “Ms describes the raw nagging hangover of a broken relationship, but is counterbalanced by both the hope of future friendship by both parties." Thats what it says on their soundcloud

  79. Alejandro Gonzalez

    We can’t lose touch but we can let go, blue and white gun made from Lego.
    All the vowels vow to hold your name, keep your estate clean of me.
    I’ve pillowed you so many times this week,
    Close eyes, open, close again, forget and fall asleep.
    The dark seeks dark,
    The dark seeks dark,
    Darker,
    Darker,
    The nights of all my youth pressed into one glass of water.
    Scattered truths, bewildered beast boohoos, we have our weight: ten thousand ladybirds.
    All the vowels vow to guard your name, keep your estate clean, happy.
    Some things lie too deep for tears to well,
    Close eyes open, close again, feel as my body spells
    Dark seeks dark,
    Dark seeks dark,
    Darker,
    Darker,
    The shadow burns across like embers tide paper

    Ayari Kiyo

    @Tahitian_boy1 Lol. Same feels haha.

    Brandon Wallace

    @Ayari Kiyo I'm 90% its either about a divorce or two separately married people falling in love.

    GrAfIT

    @Brandon Wallace to me is more like about someones death

    Mr. Shady8111

    @Brandon Wallace I always thought it was about a divorce since the title is Ms which is the title used for an unmarried woman, a married woman would be addressed as Mrs, just a thought.

    I have q question. I will be creating a viral video and it is about smoking weed. I think this would be great music for it. Do you agree?

  93. Sarah E

    so under rated

    telex13

    i dont think so. they know who they are, we know who they are. the general population doesnt have very good taste so i think they are perfectly rated. 😉

    Sarah E

    @telex13 i just meant the song haha. lots of alt j songs are popular but i think this one is best

    telex13

    +Sarah Egan ah yes i got. i think mine would be taro. i listened to this album once and tossed it aside as typical art indie. then about two months later i gave it another shot and it just grew on me

    James Stephens

    so fucking under rated!

    John Reese

    this ain't underrated everyone here knows exactly how amazing it is. It's just under-viewed.
