Lauv - Modern Loneliness

[Verse 1]
I've been thinkin' 'bout my father lately
The person that he made me
The person I've become
And I've been trying to fill all of this empty
But, fuck, I'm still so empty
Yeah, I could use some love

And I've been trying to find a reason to get up
Been trying to find a reason for this stuff
In my bedroom and my closet
The baggage in my heart is still so dark

Modern loneliness
We're never alone, but always depressed, yeah
Love my friends to death
But I never call and I never text, yeah
Yeah, you get what you give and you give what you get, so
Modern loneliness
We love to get high, but we don't know how to come down

[Verse 2]
If I could break my DNA to pieces
Rid of all my demons
If I could cleanse my soul
Then I could fill the world with all my problems
But, shit, that wouldn't solve them
So, I'm left here alone

On “Modern Loneliness,” American singer-songwriter Lauv sings about the ‘modern way’ of being lonely despite people being constantly surrounded by friends. This is the tenth and final pre-released single from Lauv’s debut album "~how i’m feeling~" which dropped in early March 2020. It was preceded by the upbeat “Tattoos Together” with a similar release rollout. “Modern Loneliness”’s release date was shared with fans on social media back in February 18, 2020, alongside a little note: "[This is my] favorite song I’ve ever made and the most important song of my career so far." The lyrics play a huge part in setting the song’s mood. Shortly after the song was released, Lauv took to Twitter to encourage fans to “LISTEN TO THE LYRICS 😭.”
