Massive Attack - The Spoils Lyrics




I got that feeling, that bad feeling that you don't know
I don't even know her but I hope that she comforts you tonight

Nobody here that keeps you in the shade and ever owned you
Some sentimental tears or someone else's girl that drips away

But I somehow slowly love you
And wanna keep you the same
Well, I somehow slowly know you
And wanna keep you away

I got that feeling, that bad feeling that you don't know
I don't even know her but I hope that she comforts you tonight

And I somehow slowly love you
And wanna keep you this way
Well, I somehow slowly know you
And wanna keep you away, away

And I somehow slowly love you
And wanna keep you this way
Well, I somehow slowly know you
And wanna keep you

But I somehow slowly love you
And wanna keep you the same
Well, I somehow slowly know you
And wanna keep you away

Massive Attack The Spoils Comments
  1. Reality

    This should have been on The Crow soundtrack. I know it didn't get made until like 20 years after the fact but it's the same mood and would have fit nicely.
    Here's my fave from that OST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbxT7W8vlBw

  2. jean jeanie72

    You know a song's profound when, at the end of the vid, you don't just automatically click on another song, but sit taking in what you've just experienced🙏💞Just sublime.

  3. Grace Chan

    painful yet soothing.

  4. Kattleya

    Cate Blanchett reminds me in this video so much of Anna Torv from "Fringe."

  5. Emma ore

    This makes me cry.. As I see my mum the way I did when I first can remember.. To see her changing hurts my soul.. Even tho she's still beautiful. I wanna keep her forever .

    Manon B

    I send you love Emma ...

    Sola Soo

    Stay strong emma..i really wanna keep my mom forever too..

  6. ზღაპრიული შუქიები

    Cate has a phylosofical face! deep!

  7. cyberella17

    The end gives me a Beyond the Black Rainbow vibe

  8. OceanMetTheSky

    Something about the chorus of this song drives me into a nostalgic depression.

    Felipe Gois

    Deeply true!

    dothedeedee

    Had one of those today listening to chvrches

    Felipe Gois

    @dothedeedee
    Depression with Chvrches?😂😂😂😂😂
    In my case, I'll most put my head under a train

  9. csea peru

    this song could easily be married to 'l'm not in love' by 10cc

    miyahtallulah

    Both good in their own way. Both totally different, this is far more tragic

  10. Mariano P

    Biutyfallllll face ewer sin yes 😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑

  11. Machiel van Dijk

    Heavenly

  12. cchbe

    Makes me remember Byork All is full of love.

  13. Sebastian Danil Weber

    Masterpiece🎯

  14. patt0x

    What a horrible video for such a beautiful and sad song.

  15. Alfred Bester

    Cool song, but what a strange video.

  16. natalie Mattoon

    Watching confessions of a killer while watching this 💀

  17. Mihai Melnic

    O Lady Galadriel... O Lady of Lothlorien...

  18. Michèle Lafontaine

    Ce video me fait sentir mal à chaque fois que je le regarde. Massive attack a le don de troublé par ses mélodies et ses images... En sachant que cette chanson ne parle pas de ce que je perçois, mon interprétation du video est un peu différente. Je le perçois plus comme étant la disparition d'un être cher qui disparaît (meurt) non seulement physiquement mais dans la mémoire pour l'éternité. Autrement dit, la disparition d'un être oublié, comme si il n'avait jamais existé...

  19. daniel palaciosazul

    esto es por una mala alimentacion

  20. jhonny campos teles

    Certo pago e não quero propaganda. Tá violando contrato. Então pare.

  21. Laura Tassinari

    ma questo brano è tratto da una colonna sonora? chi lo sa?

  22. LgLotta Granstrom

    (JB-Lg) is JONAS VIKTOR BERMANS LOTTA "Lg" GRANSTRÖM SEENS 2001.
    BIGGEST LOVE IN THIS WORLD.

    HOPE SOME PEOPLE UNDERSTAND NOW.
    KLASSTILLHÖRIGHETEN ÄR EN FÖRMILDRANDE OMSTÄNDIGHET ENLIGT MIN ONA'S.

    Великолепно. Сколько лет слушаю, казалось бы, выдохлись уже. Но нет, постоянно доказывают, что они - лучшие.

    Samurared Lem

    bobs and vagene

  29. stefan diaconu

    thank you god for being alive

  44. Anne Williams

    I somehow slowly know/love you and want to keep you the same/away... I go here working through my child’s gender transition

  45. Rebecca Monroe

    God I loved you so much. Even more than you could even imagine. You tasted me and felt the warmth of my body but you never felt your heart in flames just like I felt mine everytime I would see your face or smell you. I pushed you away in so many ways but you crushed me. I pray to God you find someone that can appreciate the magic you are. I hope one day I can feel this again. I dream one day someone would feel like that for me. I wish I can love again.

    Shelley C

    Feel this 😓💔

  46. pharcyde110573

    etherical

  47. Dylan Clair

    Cate Blanchett, the epitome of feminine beauty in my opinion. If I were female, I'd want to look very similar to her.

  48. Cris Noel

    This song feels like establishing isolating, heart breaking but ultimately healthy bounderies

  49. Алексей Баранов

    Танец Музы вдохновил создателей видеоарта. Спасибо.

  50. HaloXeon

    The sculptures reminiscent of different time periods makes me realise that these were once the faces of people who were loved and somebody tried to capture that moment to keep it the same forever.

  51. kath david

    Horrendous imagery... horrendously boring song.

  52. kath david

    This is a song for those who are being brainwashed on a daily basis... mind control fodder.

  53. gunnar þ björnsson

    thangs for a loves a man is not sisted in life? what are you love? who is me?

  54. naniznaniz

    I got that feeling, that bad feeling that you don't know
    I don't even know her but I hope that she comforts you tonight

    Nobody here that keeps you in the shade and ever owned you
    Some sentimental tears or someone else's girl that drips away

    But I somehow slowly love you
    And wanna keep you the same
    Well, I somehow slowly know you
    And wanna keep you away

    I got that feeling, that bad feeling that you don't know
    I don't even know her but I hope that she comforts you tonight

    And I somehow slowly love you
    And wanna keep you this way
    Well, I somehow slowly know you
    And wanna keep you away, away

    And I somehow slowly love you
    And wanna keep you this way
    Well, I somehow slowly know you
    And wanna keep you

    But I somehow slowly love you
    And wanna keep you the same
    Well, I somehow slowly know you
    And wanna keep you away🖤🖤🖤

    Nita Collins

    Nobody here that keeps you in the shade will ever owe you
    Some sentimental tears or someone else's girl I dreampt away

    Elysion B

    cool, so we have indeed listened to the same song, omg.

    naniznaniz

    @Elysion B 🖤🖤🖤

  55. ssraven

    i´ve read many comments andt it´s strange how they relate each other to mine in the way that you suffered something other person did. But i think that everyone have their own version. I´m sure my ex would say i´m evil the same i said about her. Many years have passed and now i think that we both have a point. We´re not as good as we think, nor bad. We´re just imperfection who wannabe perfection, but far... far away from that. Our selfishness blind us, and that´s no more than human nature. I hope i can forget my selfishness a second. Just a second to make my mind and heart work together

  56. Amanda Parsons

    Come DSC xxx

  57. Madison Johnson

    This is the most excruciatingly heartbreaking song I've ever heard..

  58. theo smid

    As i am drinking myself to death this music comforts me. joke can t find a way to describe this beautifull music.

  59. z cub

    Hope is such an under-rated talent, love all her collaborations outside of Mazzy Star, such as those with The Chemical Brothers and Jesus & Mary Chain and of course Massive Attack.

  60. Funkywallot

    Thank You for the Music, Massive Attack, Now you are finished for good. Whats left is a Brand... Who baought the label. Are you proud of yourselves now ???

  61. Marius Dinculescu

    Hello Miss Galadriel :)

  62. Ivy Elizabeth

    Interesting how I was just watching a documentary on Pompeii..the encased face of the woman in this music video made me sit back and look around to think ' wow my guardian angels or something like that sent this to me I believe. ' the lyrics really speak to me as well. I was cheated on while in another state to make money at a plant to get sent a positive pregnancy test from my fiancé to finally tell me it was her boss she was messing around with all along when I asked before she denied it only to later tell me (much much later when I wasn't even around) to confess it was him.

    I fell out of love but it took some time, I will always still care and think of her but I know she doesn't do the same. Last thing she sent to me before blocking me and changing her number (for like the 8th time) that ' if you want to see me I can see you in Seneca id like $250 but if you won't talk money then leave me alone ' I told her nah...I'm good..have your fiancé do that for you.

  63. David Callahan

    For me this is the sequel to Teardrop

    Lyrics:
    [Verse 1]
    I got that feeling, that bad feeling that you don't know
    I don't even know her but I hope that she comforts you tonight

    [Verse 2]
    Nobody here that keeps you in the shade and ever owned you
    Some sentimental tears or someone else's girl that drips away

    [Chorus 1]
    But I somehow slowly love you
    And wanna keep you the same
    Well, I somehow slowly know you
    And wanna keep you away

    [Verse 1]
    I got that feeling, that bad feeling that you don't know
    I don't even know her but I hope that she comforts you tonight

    [Chorus 2]
    And I somehow slowly love you
    And wanna keep you this way
    Well, I somehow slowly know you
    And wanna keep you away, away

    [Chorus 3]
    And I somehow slowly love you
    And wanna keep you this way
    Well, I somehow slowly know you
    And wanna keep you

    [Chorus 1]
    But I somehow slowly love you
    And wanna keep you the same
    Well, I somehow slowly know you
    And wanna keep you away

  84. Alfred Meier

    Cool sound and acting!

  85. Stefka Eric

    Really... you have got Cate Blanchett on your clip and you do... THIS?!

    Mauro Tedeschi

  86. Aaron Hahn

    There is NO such thing as Angels in Heaven. There is an Angel right here on Earth..... "Hope Sandoval"!

  87. Bo Wu

    this song gives me the feeling of sensory deprivation

    Elion Holf

    Bo Wu exactly!!

  88. gunnar þ björnsson

    you hit me.I hef see in Moves,en she is one of Women by with Gad.

  89. Rob Campbell

    Sadly, little to be proud of now being British. Our country truly has been allowed, by the hands of ineptitude, to slip into a place of being nowhere, belonging nowhere and meaning little to anyone outside of her own shores. However, we still make the best music on the planet by a huge margin. Ladies and gentlemen I give you Massive Attack.

  90. Ando Vido

    Conversation with yourself when you are getting to know someone and see a glimpse of your future together...

  91. richy topham

    this song breaks my heart every time i hear it.

  92. Ben Losada

    Beutiful

  93. Dawid Wy

    It took me a couple of years to appreacieate the beauty of this song.
