plague of love lyrics – katie melua

“plague of love”

my father is a doctor
he never told me
about this problem
that i’ve got

i’ve never had it
it feels awful
it must be something that i caught

i can’t breath, i can’t eat
i hallucinate in my sleep
i get a fever whenever you’re near
oh god it’s suddenly clear

ooh struck down by the plague of love
sweet poison running through my blood
and i can’t bear not knowing if you even care.

my mother is nurse
she can’t help me
though she spent her life
in the service of others

i told her ‘bout my pain
but she was busy
downstairs serving dinner for my brother

now i can’t get out of bed
i’ve got this crazy notion in my head
i hear a ghost in my bedroom lurking
is it me or is the medicine working?

ooh struck down by the plague of love
sweet poison running through my blood
and i can’t bear not knowing if you even care

ooh struck down by the plague of love
sweet poison running through my blood
and i can’t bear not knowing if you even care.

maybe nothing can save me
so come a little closer
i’ve got a secret just for you

ooh struck down by the plague of love
sweet poison running through my blood
and i can’t bear not knowing if you even care

ooh struck down by the plague of love
struck down by the plague of love
struck down by the plague of love
