  • Every man I fall for
    drinks his coffee black
    Love + hate are tattoed on his nuckles and
    my name is on his back

    Every man I fall for
    works they 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 blvd
    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 Writer/s: JONATHAN RUSSELL, MATTHEW AVEIRO, MATTHEW MAUST, NATHAN WILLETT
