The Wildhearts - 21st Century Love Songs Lyrics


It was a forgettable day, I remember it well
‘Cos of the music in the lobby of the Easy Hotel
Some kid was singing that he couldn’t make it all by himself
I said «so this lad is an expert?»
«He sounds about twelve»

He said «a man needs a woman at the end of the day»
What a moronic crock of shit for anybody to say
Cos if you’re bi-sexual, asexual, lesbian or gay
Then you are not represented by the radio anyway

Singing out to vanity, out of date and obsolete
I want the one about the death of monogamy
It’s all half cocked

Take ’em in fixed then fuck ’em back up again
On, off, on, off… can’t agree on anything
Burn on entry, ride on empty
21st century love songs
The one about lowering expectation
Holding tight in desperation
This ain’t a movie, more like a eulogy
21st century love songs
21st century love songs
21st century love songs

Where is the song where they split and they can’t even say why?
Or where they ghost one another ’til they finally die?
From a relationship built on a succession of lies
Where is my bogus official?
«Nice dress»

We’ll teach the world how to sing about the death of respect
Fall out of passion overnight, with immediate effect
I want a National Anthem for the no longer best
A cynical single that is best pressed to the chest

Sing it out to casualties hooked on empty calories
This’ll never work out statistically

Take ’em in fixed then fuck ’em back up again
On, off, on, off… can’t agree on anything
Burn on entry, ride on empty
21st century love songs
The one about lowering expectation
Holding tight in desperation
This ain’t a movie, more like a eulogy
21st century
21st century
21st century
21st century
21st century
21st century

Take ’em in fixed then fuck ’em back up again
On, off, on, off… can’t agree on anything
Burn on entry, ride on empty
Love songs
The one about lowering expectation
Holding tight in desperation
This ain’t a movie, more like a eulogy
Love songs

21st century love songs
21st century love songs
21st century love songs
