She said this talkin'
Just kinda wears me out
And all these salesmen
Baby make me tired

They're no good
Tell you the truth she said
I've been getting' used to liars
They sing me love songs

Store-bought words
They make promises
Like politicians
So we stumble

And we 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

They said one big exhale never did me no
Good
I let 'em in I

Oh man I let 'em win
I burned my house down
Just to hear 'em scream my name
I've carried hope
And heavy daydreams
She said
But I'm done with sleepin'

Take the phone calls
Take this circus
Take the drama
'Cause baby it's just 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
They said one big exhale never did me no
Good
One big exhale never did me no good

And the bright lights shine
Still we ache 'n' we break n we
Try
The stage lights shine
And they blind our eyes
To it all
Oh oh
Still we ache 'n' we break 'n' 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

Yeah it's a taco truck
Come on take the phone calls
And I'll take the silence
This modern love

Is not enough
Oh oh oh oh
Oh
Yeah one big exhale
Never did me no good
One exhale
One big exhale yeah
One exhale
Never did me no good
Oh never did me no good
