James Blake - Assume Form Lyrics




Now I'm confiding, know I'm in haze
Gone through the motions my whole life
I hope this is the first day
That I connect motion to feeling
We spin slowly, we spin slowly 'til morning

You know, you know, you know, you know
Appearance is nothing
You know, you know, you know, you know
Appearance is nothing
Now you're my lover, know that
I fell at your ways
Ashamed lover
When you touch me, I wonder what you would want with me

It feels like like a thousand pounds of weight holding your body down in a pool of water, barely reaching your chin

I will assume form, I'll leave the ether
I will assume form, I'll be out of my head this time
I will be touchable by her, I will be reachable
I couldn't tell you where my head goes either

But it wanders 'til I'm high up
Where I'm not all here, and there's no karma
When you touch me, I wonder
I always wonder what you could want with me

I will assume form, I'll leave the ether
I will just fall and be beneath her
I will be touchable, I will be reachable
'Cause I can already see that this goes deeper

Now you can feel everything
Doesn't it seem unnatural?
Doesn't it seem frauded?
Doesn't it feel connective?
Doesn't it see you crying?
Don't you know your best side shows when you're unaware?
Not thinking, just primal
Now you can feel everything
Doesn't it get much clearer?
Doesn't it seem connecting?
Doesn't it get you starting?
Doesn't it make you happier?
Doesn't it feel more natural?
Doesn't it see you float?
Doesn't it seem much warmer?
Just know in the sun, we'll be out

James Blake Assume Form Comments
  1. Daphsny

    If you suffer from anxiety, over thinking, then these lyrics touch you in a different level

  2. Vagabond Akira

    I will assume titan form

  3. ahmet içözlü

    perfec muzic

  4. Aqualad Lopes

    It sounds like a long Interlude. I loved it

  5. Kevin Daupin

    2:44 my brain melts...

    (Though I didn't understand the song before this)

  6. Kindred Spirit

    This song just resonates with me so deeply. It's been running through my head all day, reminding me to be present and not wrapped up in my thoughts. Physically, mentally, and spiritually invested in the present moment and in other people.

  7. N Pa

    "The song ‘Assume Form’ is, in part, about finding the ability to feel safe during intimacy." https://www.penguin.co.uk/articles/2019/oct/james-blake-on-mental-health/

  8. Ninah Rae

    James Blake is our generation's very own Thom Yorke...

  9. ILoveTheUK

    *Doesn’t it feel like Yemen* 2:41

  10. TheofficalJonah _

    2:17 that bass drop is outstanding 🤩🤩😩

  11. 이정수

    Such an underrated masterpiece

  12. Jill Sophia

    I don't always pay attention to the soundtrack at Starbucks - but when I do, I often discover some amazing indie song like this one.

  16. Lazar Hristov

    Au koska

  17. Trey Jordan

    "when you touch me I wonder, I always wonder what you could want with me"

    I feel like he went into my head and wrote that line.

  18. deadsoon

    i relate to this song in the sense that i feel like it describes my dissociation and emotional numbness to a T

  19. WOLF STAR

    I'll leave the ether

  20. Anna Risingsign

    You create and perform MAGIC!!!!

  22. claig1

    Saw them in Lyon, it was amazing! Listening is great, sharing is better.. great musicians, wonderfull concert, stick forever!

  23. Mick Pattison

    Just purchased the vinyl for a birthday gift to myself. Its like peeling a multi-coloured onion with a few extra surprises thrown in for good measure.

  24. monique cavard

    sa voix est magnifique!

  25. Moh Afzal

    Being in love is great for the first week

  26. Callum Rymer

    Best song on the album - screw you melon!

  27. Blake Willis

    So you just gonna change the whole dynamic & think I’m not gonna notice?

    Blake Willis

    I respect that

  28. John Ma

    i fucking hate the album cover i dont know why.

  29. Emmanuel Gapud

    Discussing his stylistic development, critic Mark Fisher wrote that "listening back to Blake's records in chronological sequence is like hearing a ghost gradually assume material form; or it's like hearing the song form (re)coalescing out of digital ether." (Wikipedia)


    "I will assume form // I leave the ether"

  30. Pedro Guerra

    Divine!

  31. Octavi Obiols Sales

    With time this song will get the credit it deserves. Masterpiece.

  32. Gareth Oman

    that switch at 2:17 is awesome

  33. Yuriy Ghost

    One of the best art pop songs I ever heard.

  34. Soaringg

    This song makes you realize your true potential

    N. Mourad

    Beautifully said dude

    House of Beloved

  40. Jridgen

    A melon told me not to like this song, but I disagree.

    NPS

    @C. Starosta why would you have ever trusted another person to review albums for you in the first place... listen yourself.

    C. Starosta

    @NPS never watch any other melon video again

    Riley Kard

    Why the fuck would someone care about what that dumb cunt thinks?

    Bailey Sauer

    Stoopid melon

    Spam singles

    This is my favorite song on the album. Too bad he put it as the worst track

  49. Steven Ingram

    Wonderful album.I love all these tunes but the run of 4 songs starting from “Ill come too” to the end is perfection.

  50. Evan Eastham

    What does the high pitched voice say ? Either way it’s euphoric asf

  51. LifeAsANoun

    yikes... the first I'm cool on.

    Now I'm confiding, know I'm in haze
    Going through the motions my whole life
    I hope this is the first day
    That I connect motion to feelings
    Being slowly, we spend slowly ;til morning
    You know, you know, you know you know
    Appearance is nothing
    You know, you know, you know you know
    Appearance is nothing
    And I am my lover
    Know that I fell electrowaves
    Ashamed lover
    When you me touch I wonder what you want from me
    It feels like like a thousand pound weight holding your body down
    In the pool of water barely reaching your chin
    I will assume form
    I'll leave the ether
    I will assume form
    I'll be out of my head this time
    I will be touchable by her

    I couldn't tell you where my head goes either
    But it wanders, to the high up
    Where I'm not all here, and there's no karma
    When you touch me, I wonder
    I always wonder what you could want with me
    I will assume form
    I'll leave the ether
    I will just fall and be the leaver
    I will be touchable
    I will be reachable
    'Cause I can already see that this goes deeper
    Now you can feel everything
    Doesn't it seem unnatural?
    Doesn't it seem flawed?
    Doesn't it feel connective?
    Doesn't it seem crying?
    Don't you know your best side shows when you're unaware

    Tallon

    N. Mourad

    Why would you need to smoke a bowl then?

  55. Kevin C

    the piano in this song is hypnotic. again, james has created a curiously beautiful soundscape which i never want to leave and the lyrics only add to the beauty i hear. I can't wait to hear you alive to in Philly. Keep killin' it sir.

  56. glowjar

    Brooooooooooooo

  57. Footages Lez

    Yup I’m crying

  58. Peaking Mantis

    The high pitch chanting that comes in at 2:44 is just exactly how I'm feeling right now

    John Mandragon

    That chanting has been stuck in my head for days now, didn't rate this tune at first now I can't stop listening to it....

    Lucas Oliveira

    2:44 O que é cantado nessa parte, pode traduzir?

  59. Maddie

    Who’s here from Arden Rose’s newest video?

  60. Lue Ciefer

    I don't normally feel so much from a song the first time, wow

  61. Grasshopper

    That piano riff sounds Francesco Tristano-inspired. Or maybe I'm just crazy

  62. LucibelleSuppafly !

    Ho man fourthy times now!

    Rayhan Ahmed

    jade cooper what a shit argument

    Isaac Fihosy

    This was always going to be his natural progression, given his heritage (parentage) and his own amazing ability to fuse genres in order to cause his melancholic aura to assume form ;)

    Forest Sunset
