Lyrics for Modern Love - 2018 Remaster by David Bowie:

Intro
I know when to go out
And when to stay in
Get things done

Verse 1
I catch the 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

Verse 2
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

Chorus
Never going to 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 confessions
(God and Man) no religion
(God and Man) don't believe in Modern Love

Verse 3
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

Chorus
Never going to 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 confessions
(God and Man) no religion
(God and Man) don't believe in Modern Love

Chorus
(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 confessions
(God and Man) no religion
(God and Man) don't believe in Modern Love

Outro
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, modern love, modern love)

Song Facts

David Bowie’s hit single from 1983, a song he claimed was inspired by Little Richard, especially in the part with the “back and forth” lyrics.

The first track from the “Let’s Dance” album, which went platinum in both the UK and the US, altogether yielded 4 singles for Bowie – its beat definitely gets one into a dancing mood.
