                             Modern Love – Matt Nathanson
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: andrewbo22@yahoo.com

Capo 1

Tuning: Standard



This is the main riff to the song.

Intro/Verse  (Matt picks just these two strings but strums all chords.)
e|--------3---2---3---3-----------------------------------------|
B|--------3---3---5---1-----------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------|
she said this talking 
kind of wears me out
and all these salesmen
baby, make me tired

they're no good, to tell you the truth, she said
I've been getting used to lying

they send me love songs, with store bought words
they make me promises, like politicians

so we stumble
and disconnect
over and over again

Chorus
e|--------3------2--------3-------3------------------3----2-----|
B|--------3------3--------5-------1------------------3----3-----|
G|---------------------------------------X2  then----0----2-----|
D|---------------------------------------------------2----0-----|
A|---------------------------------------------------3----x-----|
E|---------------------------------------------------x----2-----|

this modern love is not enough
she said, watch your back
I'm nobodies girlfriend
this modern love is not enough
oh oh oh oh oh oh
They said one big exhale never did me no, good






Verse 2 

e|--------3---2---3---3-----------------------------------------|
B|--------3---3---5---1-----------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------|


I'd let em in, I
Oh man, I'd let em win
I'd burn my house down 
just to hear them scream my name
I've carried hope
and heavy daydreams she said
but I'm done with sleeping

take the phone calls
take this circus
take the drama, cause baby it's worthless

one big exhale never did me no good



Bridge: 
Cadd9      G     Em7   D  x 2
Em7  Cadd9

and the bright light shines
and we ache and we break and we try
stage light shines
and they blind our eyes
still we ache and we break and we just can't get it right

Chorus till the end


this modern love is not enough
she said, watch your back
I'm nobodies girlfriend
this modern love is not enough
oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh this modern love is just a taco truck
come on take the phone calls
I'll take the silence

this modern love is not enough
oh oh oh oh oh
one big exhale never did me no good
one exhale
one big exhale
yeah one exhale never did me no good
never did me no good

The post chorus thing "one big exhale" is Em then D instead of what you wrote. And the bridge seems a bit off, Im gonna work on that. Otherwise, good job. :)
