F**k Modern Love
Nasty Cherry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I always thought good things came in threes
But two was bad enough for me
Rev it up, replace the memories of my baby in the backseat
Yeah, I started and I make you want me to stay
Pick you apart and then throw you away
Burning our feelings all over the PCH

Torn off my bandage
Bad aim for nothing
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm feeling little bit mad so I wanna go fast today
I'm gonna get in my car, gonna drive it the other way
I'm screaming, "Fuck it," to modern love
So I'm screaming, "Fuck it," to modern love
To modern love

Eyes misting over and no real concern
Speeding over '98
Rear view mirror filled with disco lights
Losing any sense of time
Lovesick songs on the radio
Taking me places I don't even know
Telling me that I'm all out of hope today

Torn off my bandage
Bad aim for nothing
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm feeling little bit mad so I wanna go fast today
I'm gonna get in my car, gonna drive it the other way
I'm screaming, "Fuck it," to modern love
So I'm screaming, "Fuck it," to modern love
To modern love

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm pacing, I'm pacing
I'm crazy, I'm crazy




I'm crazy, I'm crazy
I'm crazy

Pick you apart and then throw you away
I'll analyze and criticize everything about you, then end the relationship abruptly


Burning our feelings all over the PCH
We'll drive along the Pacific Coast Highway, expressing our intense emotions and potentially damaging our relationship
