every man i fall for lyrics – cold war kids

every man i fall for
drinks his coffee black
“love” and “hate” are tattoed on his knuckles and
my name is on his back

every man i fall for
works the graveyard shift
he kisses me softly to wake me up
then takes my place in bed

and i fall
i leave with one concern
it’s the law of diminishing returns
it’s the law of diminishing returns

every man i fall for keeps his anger on
a string and holds it tight
when other man walk by blinking their eyes at me
he always pick a fight

i go walk alone down ocean boulevard
peaking your windows
tired housewives nagging at their husbands, but
is this the life you chose?

and i fall
i leave with one concern
it’s the law of diminishing returns
and i fall
i leave with one concern
it’s the law of diminishing returns

every man i fall for
nearly every man
every man i fall for
nearly every man
