This is a very nice song by Alt-J, which is surprisingly simple.
Funnily enough, the intro is exactly the same as "No Surprises" from Radiohead, but 
played faster, and with more overlaid guitars. You wouldn't notice it though ...

Spoken/sang (no chords) :

This is from
This is from
This is from Matilda

Intro

Loop this 4x :
e-2-------2-------2-------2---3----------|
a-----3-------3-------3-----3---3--------|
d---2---3---2---2---2---2----------------|
g----------------------------------------|
b----------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------|

Loop this 2x :
e----------------------------------------|
a-3-------3-------3-------3--------------|
d-----4-------4-------4-------4----------|
g---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5--------|
b----------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------|


Em        G                                   Bm                A
Just like Johnny Flynn said, 'the breath I've taken and the one I must' to
   Em
go on.

Em         G                      Bm                      A
Put the grenade pin in your hand, so you understand who's boss.

Em    G                 Bm            A
My defeat sleeps top to toe with her success.

Em
Oh this is from
A
This is from
A               D
This is from Matilda

 --- G  ---

Em      G
And she needs you
Bm      A
This is for Matilda
Em      G
And she needs you
Bm      A
This is for Matilda




The end is just the succession of :

D(x2)  G   A


And there we have it! I must admit that the "and she needs you" sounds a bit odd, but I 
think its that. I think that they only strum a few of the strings in the chords.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy !

Oh, and rate it if you like it (or even if you don't) !!

"And she needs you" sounds a bit odd because it should be Em Bm G Bm instead of Em G Bm A.

This sounds ok alone, the chords work with the vocals, but with the track it sounds very off.
