This Modern Love - Bloc Party

To be cut adrift

You've been trying to reach me

You bought me a book

To be lost in the forest

To be cut adrift

I've been paid

I've been paid



Don't get offended

If I seem absent minded

Just keep telling me facts

And keep making me smile

Don't get offended

If I seem absent minded

I get tongue-tied

Babyyou've got to be more discerning

I've known never known what's good for me

I will be yours



I'll pay for you anytime



You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness

Well jump onenjoyyou can gorge away

You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness

Jump right on

Babyyou've got to be more discerning

I've known never known what's good for me

Babyyou've got to be more demanding

I will be yours



What are you holding out for?

What's always in the way?

Why so damn absent-minded?

Why so scared of romance?



This modern love breaks me

This modern love wastes me



Do you wanna come over and kill some time?

Tell me factstell me factstell me facts

Tell me facts

Throw your arms around me
