alt-J - Warm Foothills Lyrics




Dry dunes cater for jumping boys
From the nape of her neck he made his descent
They watched men hurl from rock to sea
Like sternum to button, lined lip pinches in between

Your foothills, your warm

Iris swims quietly beside me
Oh the weeds and larger leaves sway
And stretch themselves beneath
Blue dragonflies dart to and fro
I tie my life to your balloon and let it go

Your foothills, your warm

    Do I Hear That Voice? Is It? Can It Be?~ Of Monsters And Men?? ft. Alt-J ? If So? Tell Me How I Deserve Something So Good.

    Here’s my story: it’s currently 2:23am, you just came out to your mom two days ago. She doesn’t seem too bothered by it and things still seem the same, I realized that I’m finally going to be able to go to pride. I realized that I can now introduce my future girlfriend to at least one of my family members. I’m taking baby steps and so far nothing has gone wrong, life is good.

  4. Krystal martinez

    this makes every part of me feel loved .

  5. Mr Zero

    Great songs Hit me right in the feels...

  6. Your Gay thoughts

    This song makes feel like I‘m descending. Listening to it is so otherworldly, especially if it’s 3 am while it rains and you‘re curled up in bed thinking about past relationships and what’s new to come and about how you don’t want to grow up.

  7. Konumbra

    this reminds me of my cat curled up next to me for warmth during the winter

  8. Ross House

    yeeeeeeeeeeeeet this is mad lit? KOdak black gotta be on the remix

  9. Gurgii

    Welcome To Heaven

  10. Selah Hamilton

    Reminds me of Mumford and Sons, but definitely has its own feel. I love it!

  11. alyisandra adam

    wondering if the acids hit or if the paintings moving?

  12. Maria Rita

    eu amo a delicadeza dessa música

  13. Rain

    It's the first time that a song makes me cry without having to listen to the lyrics.
    This plucks at all my strings.

  14. PrefrostedSundays

    Their voices melt together and fade into each other, slipping back and forth like velvet sheets. Magical.

  15. jj j

    Hmmm just found this...... my my it feels like life has been on a emotional spin cycle and now its stopped and the lock on the door has been released and I will be placed outside to move with the fresh spring breeze.

  16. Trif Alex

    A song that pictures sex as something beautiful, a manifestation of love with nothing vulgar.

  17. Jessica Sommers

    Pooop. 11 million is ppl like poo

  18. gigeon

    Why can i hear the halo theme in the beginning

  19. Maxwell Belway

    just listening to this song makes me want to lie down in a forest and watch as time goes by

  20. PaperGirl

    right now i hate everything and everyone in the world expect this song.
    adore it.
    thank you for saving me. <3

  21. Paul Jones

    Blue dragonflies dart to and fro
    I tie my life to your balloon and let it go.

    Those lines always make me cry for some reason, the way they alternate their voices with one another's. Simply beautiful.

  22. Sophie

    You know when you run a bath at just the right temperature so it’s boiling hot but just close enough that you can get in and everything is quiet in your house and you slowly climb in and you don’t have to thing about anything apart from submerging yourself into a clear steamy pool right this second? I promise you, doing this with this song in the background will make you feel like an absolute goddess 10/10 would recommend.

    Marshal Lee

    i'll try it

    Raven Lua

    literally just did that

  23. Katherine Moore

    Calming 😑

    t- goodlol

  34. Nornen Heimdall

    Okay. As a non-native speaker those lyrics gave me some trouble. Luckily, there're enough ways to get proper translations and explanations (thanks, Internet). One might think that these lyrics are coarse...the only thing I thought was: "Awesome."
    Keep it up, Alt-J, you certainly have a way with words, mh-hmmm. *thumbs up*

  35. Nana Lang

    this song is about seeeeeeeeeex

  36. Rhiannon May

    You know when you've been hit with something hard, some feeling or thought or event, and it's wrecked you a little bit, and you've had a good cry, and then the cry ends, naturally, as cries do, and you're kind of empty again, almost peaceful, and after a while you think to yourself, "okay then, let's get back to it," and you get up again, and you get dressed and have some tea and wash your face and get back to the life again, and every action, every breath feels... fresh, and new, and you still feel the aftermath of all of that emotion but mostly you feel beautiful and sweet and strong? Because you know you're delicate and sometimes you break, but there you are, up again, feeling okay being alive?
    That feeling is what this song sounds like.

    james fitzpatrick

    Well I don't don't do lyrics but I will tie my self your ballons and let it go

    David Kloos

    Recovering from being victim of a car crash and struggling with my partner, this song does this emption and building of happiness beautifully. Hadn't thought your words through before so wanted to say thanks

    Ahnika :3

    I was just about to explain how this song makes me feel but that about sums it up 😂

    Neil

    This is a beautiful comment, and a wonderful way to put something very difficult to express. And it connects with the other meaning of Warm Foothills: like seeing hills in the distance at dusk, a sense of yearning that you can never quite satisfy.

    Kiki

    yes, you put what I was feeling into words so beautifully

  37. Geoffrey Dearnley

    I love the sound of breaking glass! I love the sound of Alt-j!

  41. Michele Spaliviero

  42. Pete Owen

    More than a nod to Nick Lowe here. But that's fine, especially as John Hurt is comin' up 👍

  43. Bloom

    oh Alt-J I love you

  44. kansasangel99

    Are there any other people between the age of 17-22 wanting to talk to other people with good taste in music? I'm looking you and I figured this is a good place to start. I'm Brianna and I'm 18.

    Dry dunes cater for jumping boys
    From the nape of her neck he made his descent
    They watched men hurl from rock to sea
    Like sternum to button, lined lip pinches in between
    Your foothills
    Your warm
    Iris swims quietly beside me
    Oh the leaves and larger weeds sway and stretch themselves beneath
    Blue dragonflies dart to and fro
    I tie my life to your balloon and let it go
    Your foothills
    Your warm
