Modern Love
David Bowie Lyrics


I know when to go out
Know when to stay in
Get things done

I catch a paper boy
But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
But I never wave bye-bye
But I try, I try
There's no sign of life
It's just the power to charm
I'm lying in the rain
But I never wave bye-bye
But I try, I try
Never gonna fall for

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) walks on by
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) makes me party
(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confession
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) don't believe in modern love

It's not really work
It's just the power to charm
I'm still standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try
Never gonna fall for

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) walks on by
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) makes me party
(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confession
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) don't believe in modern love

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) walks on by
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) makes me party
(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confession
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) I don't believe in modern love

Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
(Modern love)
(Modern love)
(Modern love)
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks beside me
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks on by
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks beside me
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks on by
(Modern love)
Never gonna fall for
(Modern love)
(Modern love)

Sé cuándo salir
Y se cuándo quedarme
A hacer las cosas

Alcancé al chico del periódico
Pero las cosas realmente no cambian
Sigo acá parado bajo el viento,
Pero nunca digo adiós

Pero lo intento
Lo intento

No hay señal de vida,
Solo es el poder de encantar
Estoy acostado bajo la lluvia,
Pero nunca me despido

Pero lo intento.
Lo intento.

Nunca voy a caer por
-amor moderno-.
Camina a mi lado
-amor moderno-.
Pasa de largo
-amor moderno-.
Me lleva a la iglesia a tiempo
-a la iglesia a tiempo
Me aterroriza
-a la iglesia a tiempo
Me hace montar una fiesta
-a la iglesia a tiempo
Pone mi fe en Dios y en el hombre
-en Dios y en el hombre-.
¡No confesiones!
Dios y hombre
No religión.
Dios y hombre
No creo en el amor moderno

En realidad no es trabajo,
Solo es el poder de fascinar.
Sigo parado bajo el viento,
Pero nunca digo adiós

Pero lo intento.
Lo intento.

Nunca voy a caer por
-amor moderno-.
Camina a mi lado
-amor moderno-.
Pasa de largo
-amor moderno-.
Me lleva a la iglesia a tiempo
-a la iglesia a tiempo
Me aterroriza
-a la iglesia a tiempo
Me hace montar una fiesta
a la iglesia a tiempo
Pone mi fe en Dios y en el hombre
-en Dios y en el hombre-.
¡No confesiones!
Dios y hombre
No religión.
Dios y hombre
No creo en el amor moderno.

Amor moderno....
Camina a mi lado, amor moderno.
Amor moderno.
Pasa de largo, amor moderno.
Amor moderno.
Camina a mi lado, amor moderno.
Amor moderno.
Pasa de largo, amor moderno.

I always loved this song.

I had some very maudlin teenage emotions to it,

Let's dance to joy division tho..

Everything is abject to change.

Modern love, discuss.

It's as relevant now as it always was.

There are certain 80’s songs that give me an overwhelmingly painful and bittersweet sense of nostalgia. This is definitely one of them.

Michael Fowler

Awesome! Some great remixes too! Keep it Alive! 🙏❣️

This song is almost 40 years old and still better than 99.99% of anything on the radio today....
