you, you call my name
i felt the same
walking through the everglades

and i, i hear your voice
i felt no choice
had to run so far away

i can see you
i can't calm my ways


this is the end of an era
(welcome to the modern age)
this is the end of our days
(welcome to the modern age)


we grew old and vain
we looked the same
circumstances crossed our ways

and now you've gone and left
oh why? i'll ask
never to return again

i would miss you
try to notice that
i would miss you
try to notice that


and though we talked about it
dreamed how it could be
(in the modern age)
we're not the way we planned to be
are we? are we?

    General Commentits about a completely dead relationship and now they arent even close to being friends and the last part-as if its not obvious- is about how before when they were together they planned to be always together but now in the "modern age" (meaning now i guess) their plans have gone all wrong...and this song doesnt have to only be about a luv relationship it can also be about a use to be tight friendship...i think that it's sadder if it's a friendship :( i would hate to be dead to a friend of mine :( well peace and youre welcome

    General Commentyou, you call my name
    i felt the same
    walking through the everglades

    and i, i hear your voice
    i felt no choice
    had to run so far away

    i can see you
    i can't calm my ways

    we grew old and vain
    we looked the same
    circumstances crossed our ways

    and now you've gone and left
    oh why? i'll ask
    never to return again

    i would miss you
    try to notice that
    i would miss you
    try to notice that

    this is the end of an era
    (welcome to the modern age)
    this is the end of our days
    (welcome to the modern age)

    and though we talked about it
    dreamed how it could be
    (in the modern age)
    we're not the way we planned to be
    are we? are we?

    i would miss you
    try to notice that
    i would miss you
    try to notice that

    this is the end of an era
    (welcome to the modern age)
    this is the end of our days
    (welcome to the modern age)

    and though we talked about it
    dreamed how it could be
    (in the modern age)
    we're not the way we planned to be
    are we? are we?
