Through all the flops and loose ends
Could never cover up ourselves
You run for miles and you say
"I though that we'd be there by now"
Raised by wolves in practice
I've never had the point of view
You love the sinner inside
I think a lot about the news

But Ella just knows,
Ella for real
Of course you already know
What to reveal

Davenport to New York
I've never had the point of view
Ideas that we can cling to
When nothing makes sense anymore
Drink and party summer
You drink and party til you drop
To call me up on New Years
"I miss you, I want you to miss me too"

But Ella just knows
Ella for real
Of course you already know
How to reveal

Call me after the parties
Call me after your music's done
You are living in squalor
We are thriving across the pond
On a bus to the back line
Casually holding my arm
I am content to comply
I am ready to take you on

Ella just knows
Ella for real
Of course you already know
When to reveal

The songs of Modern Leisure tell illicit tales of hedonism and heartbreak under the guise of lush guitars and a hodgepodge of warm melodies. ... more
