Moods For Moderns lyrics

Moods for moderns [x4]
I get hit looking for a miss
I never thought that it would come to this

Moods for moderns [x4]

Though we may never be the same again
I am so proud that you've been taken in vain

What if none of your dreams come true?
I can never run from you
There's never been a how d'you do
There's never been an ending
Soon you'll belong to someone else
And I will be your stranger just pretending

Moods for moderns
Memory lingers
I let you into
Foreign fingers

Moods for moderns [x4]

I never thought that would see the day
I never thought that I would give you away


Moods for moderns
Let them break us
Strong and sudden
Foreign fingers
