Lyrics:
21st Century Love
Aren't you scared of what you wanted before?
It makes me cry to see the love fill their eyes.
Oh no, am I the hero of your story?
Same game played by all the above,
If I don't give a shit you'll fall in love.
What do you think I'm tryin' to do?
I stopped believin' in that shit a long time ago.

I don't, I do like to like you
Do not make me remember things that I've said.

Been alone so long I don't know whether I want another lover.
Been alone so long I don't know whether I want another

21st Century Love
I'll keep my firecracker toes on the lawn
Please pay attention what you do what you do
Autonomy is an illusion
I can't afford to humor your grudging love
It's not a joke I'm not your clown or a chore
There is a yes and there is a no
A knownin that you can't play both sides
Please stay or go.

I don't, I do like to like you
Do not make me remember things that I've said.

Been alone so long I don't know whether I want another lover.
Been alone so long I don't know whether I want another

Everybody's drivin their souped up cars
Up and down the oil-slick boulevard
And I keep seein you in other nice rides
Why do you think that I should be surprised?
Empty our your pockets and hold your crossed arms
I want the truth now, don't care what it costs
Cause I do not wanna be your fool anymore
Eyes beguiled me, my heart 's turned to stone

I'm so tired of the 21st Century
Temple of the self
The loveless poverty
Everywhere I turn it's "I don't give a shit, I don't give a shit!"
Ohh, run away.
Why don'tcha just run away?
If you're gonna run away, why don'tcha do it now?
I don't have time for this shit.
Need me? No. Anyhow.

Wait wait wait wait wait now
As the dust settles and I see you runnin there
Crown of sunlight burnin through your golden hair
I know that I was wrong, baby I know, know I was wrong
And oh so yeah oh baby I'm ready, ready, ready like a Kennedy
Ready, ready, ready to come home, ready, baby won't you please come
oh, aw oh. Ready now. Ready like a Kennedy.
Please don't run away, please don't run, please don't, please don't run away.
Please don't, please don't, please don't, please don't run away.
