  • Bathroom stalls for the powder nose (she loves)
    High heel shoes with the open toes (she loves)
    She's got a good time wrapped in gold (she loves)
    For you, for you
    All red dress with the devil eyes (she loves)
    So obsessed with the camera lights (she loves)
    You love her, but you can't deny (she loves)
    The truth, the truth

    She loves everybody
    Can't you tell by the signs?
    She loves everybody
    She gets off all the time
    It's a dark philosophy
    And it haunts her constantly
    It's a false alarm to me
    She's a false alarm

    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

    Six inch long, 'bout three inch wide (she loves)
    Dolla, dolla bill is her only type (she loves)
    You love her but you'll never be (she loves)
    The one, the one
    Diamonds and the rings are her fantasy (she loves)
    She chase hearts with the Hennessy (she loves)
    You love her, but you'll never be (she loves)
    Enough, enough

    She loves everybody
    Can't you tell by the signs?
    She loves everybody
    She gets off all the time
    It's a dark philosophy
    And it haunts her constantly
    She's a false alarm to me
    She's a false alarm

    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

    She always leaves the man she loves
    But the diamonds are forever
    She always seems to be alone
    But the diamonds make it better

    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey)
    False alarm (hey, hey, hey, hey, hey) Writer/s: Abel Tesfaye, Martin McKinney, Benjamin Diehl, Henry Russell Walter, Emmanuel Nickerson, Ahmad Balshe
