"Everyday I Love You Less And Less" as written by Nicholas Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, Nicholas Baines, James Rix and Andrew Robert White....
Everyday I love you less and less
It's clear to see that you've become obsessed
I've got to get this message to the press
That everyday I love you less and less
And everyday I love you less and less
I've got to get this feeling off my chest
The Doctor says all I needs pills and rest
Since everyday I love you less and less
And less and less,

I know, I feel it in my bones
I'm sick, I'm tired of staying in control
Oh yes, I feel a rat upon a wheel
I've got to know what's not and what is real
Oh yes I'm stressed, I'm sorry I digressed
Impressed you're dressed to SOS

Oh, and my parents love me
Oh, and my girlfriend loves me
Everyday I love you less and less
I can't believe once you and me did sex
It makes me sick to think of you undressed
Since everyday I love you less and less
And everyday I love you less and less
You're turning into something I detest
And everybody says that your a mess
Since everyday I love you less and less
And less, and less

I know, I feel it in my bones
I'm sick, I'm tired of staying in control
Oh yes, I feel a rat upon a wheel
I've got to know what's not and what is real
Oh yes I'm stressed, I'm sorry I digressed
Impressed you're dressed to SOS

Oh, and my parents love me
Oh, and my girlfriend loves me
Oh, they keep photos of me
Oh, that's enough love for me
Oh, and my parents love me
Oh, and my girlfriend loves me
Oh, they keep photos of me
Oh, that's enough love for me

    General CommentTo me its from the point of view of a guy whose so over his ex that he desperately needs to tell her how over her he is ("got to get this mesage to the press"). So in actual fact he's not over her at all, he's still madly in love with her and his constant repetitive mantra of "Every day i love you less and less" is an attempt to convince himself to get over her. He tries to tell himself that the love he gets from his parents and current girlfriend is sufficient for him, but despite him knowing that this might rationally be the case he still has feelings for her. He is confused like a rat running on a wheel and just wants to know what is real and what isn't. In short: the beauty that is post-relationship depression.

    General CommentI love the "ah ah ah ah ah" in the background.
    My mum swears it comes straight from the count on sesame st.
    she now knows it as the count's song funnily enough.

    Song MeaningI think it's pretty clear that it's about an ex that is trying to get her partner back and he's doing his best to convince himself that he is over her. Here's why:

    "It's clear to see that you've become obsessed" -- she can't let go of the relationship.

    "Unless, unless..." -- he can't quite convince himself that he is over her and he's getting tired of that constant, inner battle.

    "I’ve got to know what's not and what's real" -- he's trying to figure out his feelings about his past and current relationships; maybe there is a love/lust situation going on, or he feels people are trying to manipulate him.

    "Impressed, you're dressed to SOS" -- his ex is trying to "dress to impress" in the hopes of getting back together ("saving the ship").

    "And everybody says that you're a mess" -- he doesn't have contact with the person anymore because they broke up, but they shared friends that are giving him updates on her.

    "Ooooooh, and my parents love me, Ooooooh, and my girlfriend loves me..." -- I think in the end, he wants to sleep with his ex again, but in doing so he knows he would be hurting the people that love him (his parents, his girlfriend). This decision is what is stressing him out.

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy who is in love with someone, but is trying to convince himself that he is over her, but he can't quite.

    General Commentthe whole Brit-pop think is a little quirky but as far as it goes, the Kaiser Chiefs are pretty great. The 'my parents love me', 'my girlfriend loves me', 'they keep photos of me' is a very nice touch and no I don't think it's odd for anyone to sing about themselves. Lots of songs are written in the first person.

    General CommentI got annoyed with no one writing out complete full lyrics, a couple of people have tried but here they are:

    Everyday I love you less and less,
    It's clear to see that you've become obsessed,
    I've got to get this message to the press,
    That everyday I love you less and less,
    And everyday I love you less and less,
    I've got to get this feeling off my chest,
    The doctor says all I need's pills and rest,
    Since everyday I love you less and less and less and less,

    I know, I feel it in my bones,
    I'm sick and tired of staying in control,
    Oh yes, I feel, a rat upon a wheel,
    I've got to know what's not and what is real,
    Oh yes, I'm stressed, I'm sorry I digressed,
    Impressed, you dressed to S.O.S ('EY)

    Ooooooh, and my parents love me,
    Ooooooh, and my girlfriend loves me,
    Ooooooooooooooooh

    Everyday I love you less and less,
    I can't believe once you and me did sex,
    It makes me sick to think of you undressed,
    Since everyday I love you less and less,
    And everyday I love you less and less,
    You're turning into something I detest,
    And everybody says that you're a mess,
    Since everyday I love you less and less and less and less,

    I know, I feel it in my bones,
    I'm sick and tired of staying in control,
    Oh yes, I feel, a rat upon a wheel,
    I've got to know what's not and what is real,
    Oh yes, I'm stressed, I'm sorry I digressed,
    Impressed, you dressed to S.O.S ('EY)

    Ooooooh, and my parents love me,
    Ooooooh, and my girlfriend loves me,
    Ooooooh, they keep photos of me,
    Ooooooh, that's enough love for me,
    Ooooooooooooooooh

    [Keyboard Solo]

    Stop...Tell-Ing...Me...What...To...Do

    Ooooooh, and my parents love me,
    Ooooooh, and my girlfriend loves me,
    Ooooooh, they keep photos of me,
    Ooooooh, that's enough love for me,
    Oooooooooooooooooooooh.

    General Commentyeah, that fits in great ... one slight problem though, how do you shag the press & the media? ...and how do you undress it in the first place?

    by the way, anyone know what the 'dressed to SOS' bit may mean?
    rat on a wheel i guess refers to the futility of his efforts to continue their relationship. oh, and why does everyone think he's talking about his ex? maybe he's just bored of their relationship...

    General CommentI always figured this song was about some crazed fan. Maybe he thought it was cool in the start, and that led to the sex-part, but then the fan turned out to be some obsessed nutter, and now he's trying to get rid of her (him?).

    General CommentI think this is about a guy and a girl he had an affair with... He realized he's got all the love he needs, from his parents, his girlfriend... and that how a big mistake the girl was... but sometimes he can't help but lust after her... BUT He is clear that he likes her less and less and won't do it again.. She's an eye candy when dressed, but he won't do the same mistake again.

    General CommentActually he's not talking about himself.
    He just had an affair, and he isn't convincing himself or anything. It's the feeling you get when the rush of the affair is over, and you start seeing things in more clear and simple terms.
    So every day it gets easier for him to forget about this girl and go on with his normal life.
