The Kooks – Modern Days

Modern Days

[Verse 1]
Something's telling me I got to turn away
From the life I had, I shouldn't hesitate
Walk like an animal into the world of glass
Seems so fragile, yeah, nothing was built to last

[Pre-Chorus]
All the lovers you had, all the lives that you led mean nothing
It's trickling down and I can't hear a sound they make

[Chorus]
In the modern days (We live for these modern days
Oh babe, we live for these modern days)
In the modern days (We live for these modern days
Oh babe, we live for these modern days)
(We live for these modern days, oh babe we live for these modern days)

[Verse 2]
This is bigger than the fear of atom bombs
The truth is on sale at your local restaurant
The time for selling out has been and gone and died
Music lover in a whirlwind not your time

[Pre-Chorus]
Afraid of the shadows I send, I know I got to get up to the ceiling again (In the modern days)
Put me out of my misery now, I won't slip away
But I know what I want you say
And the atoms in my heart all pray together
I'll hold you forever

[Chorus]
In the modern days (We live for these modern days
Oh babe, we live for these modern days)
In the modern days (We live for these modern days
Oh babe, we live for these modern days)
In the modern days (We live for these modern days
Oh babe we live for these modern days)

[Bridge]
Way up in my room, telling all my secrets

[Outro]
In the modern days
In the modern days (We live for these modern days
Oh babe, we live for these modern days)
In the modern days (We live for these modern days
Oh babe, we live for these modern days)
