This Modern Love Chords

   
I think this is pretty accurate, it's good enough for me anyway. In the bit where they have the 

Am - G - C - F 

progression, the F can be a Dm as well, they both sound right to me. And the 
change from the G to C is quick, but if you know the song, you should understand what I mean


Intro - C - C/B - Am - F 
        C   C/B   Am

x2


       C 
To be lost in the forest
 
          C/B - Am
To be cut adrift

Am           
You've been trying to reach me
 F     
You bought me a book
      C
To be lost in the forest

          C/B - Am
To be cut adrift

          Am
I've been paid

            F
I've been paid


C - C/B - Am - F 
 C   C/B   Am


C
Don't get offended
                 C/B  Am
If I seem absent minded
          Am
Just keep telling me facts
          F
And keep making me smile
C
Don't get offended
           C/B        Am
If I seem absent minded
Am           F
I get tongue-tied
C                            C/B     Am
Baby, you've got to be more discerning
Am                              F
I've known never known what's good for me
C                          C/B      Am
Baby you've got to be more demanding
Am
I will be yours

Chorus (x2):

Am - G - C - F 

               Am      G           C       F        
I'll pay for you                          Anytime

Verse 2:

    C                              C/B     Am
You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness
Am                           F
Well jump on, enjoy, you can gorge away
C                                   C/B   
You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness
Am
Jump right on
C                          C/B       Am
Baby, you've got to be more discerning
Am                             F
I've known never known what's good for me
C                           C/B     Am
Baby, you've got to be more demanding
 


C          C/B         Am            F     
What are you            Holding out for
C          C/B        Am                   
What's always           In the way
C         C/B         Am            F                    
Why so damn           Absent-minded?
C         C/B         Am
Why so scared         Of romance


Chorus:x2


Am G  C Dm

             Am       G   C
This modern love
                   Am       G   C       Dm
breaks me
             Am       G   C
This modern love

wastes me


Outro:

       C                           C/B   Am
Do you wanna come over and kill some time?
Am                          F
Do you wanna come over and kill some time?
       C                            C/B   Am
Do you wanna come over and kill some time?

Throw your arms around me
