Back to Modern Love lyrics

Modern Love

She said this talking
Kind of wears me out
And all these salesmen
Baby, make me tired

They're no good, to tell you the truth, she said
I've been gettin' used to liars

They send me love songs, with store bought words
They make promises, like politicians

We stumble
And disconnect
Over and over again

This modern love is not enough
She said, watch your back
I'm nobody's girlfriend
This modern love is not enough
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
They said one big exhale never did me no, good

I'd let em in, I
Oh man, I'd let em win
I'd burn my house down
Just to hear them scream my name
I've carried hopes
And heavy daydreams she said
But I'm done with sleeping

Take the phone calls
Take this circus
Take the drama, cause baby it's worthless

This modern love is not enough
She said, watch your back
I'm nobody's girlfriend
This modern love is not enough
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
They said one big exhale never did me no, good
One big exhale never did me no good

And the bright light shines
And we ache and we break and we try
Stage light shines
And they blind our eyes
To it all
Still we ache and we break and we just can't get it right

This modern love is not enough
She said, watch your back
I'm nobody's girlfriend
This modern love is not enough
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh this modern love is a taco truck
Come on take the phone calls
I'll take the silence

This modern love is not enough
Oh oh oh oh oh
One big exhale never did me no good
One exhale
One big exhale
Yeah one exhale never did me no good
Never did me no good
