lyrics

You would say
If lonely is the will
Then I'm the way
And there's nothing more to say

But if the world's a sea
You're just a pier
The lonely land
Will hold you near
If you could only float
Just let go
You'd sail away from here

Then someday soon
Your heart will howl with his
And love will bloom
For a while
And then he'll smile and say
There's something about you and me
I've finally begun to see
I'm not just disappointing
Luckily, you're disappointing me

Now you're using your love letters
To help lever shaking chair legs
But at least you are hoisting yourself up
And off the floor

And you can stow away your heartstrings
That detached while you were wailing
But you won't begrudge the tug of
Modern Love

Love
Cause it keeps coming
Love is rushing in
To give the body
Round the heart
A reason not to fall apart

You'll be
Hunting for a hand to hold
Believing you can't live alone
But if the lights align
While you're inside
Enveloped by your own demise
It's the synthesis of star-crossed lives
That will go on unbeknownst
To those to hope
To those hope

So you're filling up your tear ducts
and you're weary of those waters
But you won't forgo the flood
Of modern love
Of modern love
And this melancholic moment's
Only yours because you chose it
Though it's hard to give it up
Just give it up

Love
Cause it keeps coming
Love is rushing in
To give the body
Round the heart
A reason not to fall apart

Cause it keeps coming
Love is rushing in
To give the body
Round the heart
A reason not to fall apart

Love
