"The Spoils (feat. Hope Sandoval)" as written by and Dan Jones Stewart Neville Jackson....
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, who ever owned you
Some sentimental tears or someone else's girl that drifts 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

    My InterpretationI think this is a song about that moment when you just finish a relationship, and maybe the other person alrerady have a "new one" ("I don't even know her but I hope that she comforts you tonight").
    You have all those memories fresh and hanging around and hurt you about the person ("But I somehow slowly love you"); the good aspects of the person an the bad ones ("Well, I somehow slowly know you And wanna keep you away").
    Yeah, it's about the fresh memories of a recent breakup.

    My InterpretationIt's about a girl who is in love with someone, she keeps at a distance.
    She is in love with the illusion of the person, rather than having the person in her life. By never having this man in her life she can love him forever in her illusion, the illusion is perfect for her.

    My InterpretationIt's about her pure love, unchanged by the fact that he's gone and the dissonance between his good vs bad traits, as seen by her.

    My InterpretationI believe this is about a woman who’s is a new relationship with someone she suspects has another woman elsewhere (“the spoils” of the relationship). She has a growing suspicion ("bad feeling") about this. And she is conflicted between slowly falling in love a man she believes or imagines she's met and keeping a distance from him as she comes to know him better.

    MemoryI discovered this song almost four months ago, when I was going through some great changes in my life. In a sea of shit, I was discovering I was falling in love with a beautiful soul and that created a sort of sadness I never felt before, like I was remembering something from the future. I discovered that the beautiful soul was feeling the same and we were creating something new, „slowly love you, slowly know you”, we were carving the sound to the core of the vibration, we grew, we were Light. And then, Darkness came, again: heavy, consuming, absurd: „I got that feeling...”
