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, oh yeh

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

[Chorus]
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)

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

[Chorus]
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)

The Weeknd - False Alarm (Song Lyrics)

The Weeknd - False Alarm (YouTube Video and Karaoke)


With “False Alarm,” the second single released off The Weeknd’s upcoming album Starboy, we’re getting a whole new take on R&B prophet Abel Tesfaye’s range. Tesfaye usually restricts himself to smoother tunes, letting his falsetto do the work. But “False Alarm” is an uncharacteristically frantic, up-tempo ode to unrequited love, his signature delivery interrupted and heated up with raw, unrestrained shrieks. The song has a distorted 80s vibe—and an underlying energy with eerie edge. Plus, it’s about a woman who is just out of reach.

While "False Alarm" still finds the Weeknd crooning lines like "Bathroom stalls for the powdered nose" and "You love her but you'll never be the one," the production is grittier than the slick grooves of "I Can't Feel My Face" or "In the Night." The percussion is tight and relentless, while the spacey synths and guitars build to a blaring chorus, which the Weeknd introduces with a scathing scream.

"False Alarm" fittingly follows the Weeknd's video for "Starboy" — his recent single with Daft Punk — in which the R&B star kidnaps and disposes of his Beauty Behind the Madness-era self. "Starboy" is the title track off of the Weeknd's upcoming record, which is set to arrive November 25th.
