Okay, so (understandably) I've had a song stuck in my head all day: "Love Causes Cancer" by Stuart Davis. I thought I might share with everyone else while it loops in my own head. You can listen to it online right here. I'll put lyrics below the cut...

My father found a tumor in his chest.
It was his body, but it scared me half to death,
and it scared me back to life - just a little more awake.
Miracles are brutal, but they never make mistakes,
They never make mistakes.

Love causes cancer.
Love causes cancer.
Ask an ugly question, get an ugly answer.
Guardian angels are dangerous bastards.
Love causes cancer.

My friend lost his wife one year ago tonight
Everybody said he'd never be the same, and they were right.
Something softened in his eyes;
Her fingerprint on his heart made it twice the size,
Made it twice the size.


Melting us in the alchemy of tears
makes us sick, and it makes us soft.
It appears, sometimes, I feel thankful for
whatever makes me need it more.

We could be the next to have our bodies torn apart
'cause grace is everywhere planting bombs inside of peoples' hearts,
And maybe we're the ones love is gonna choose.
Well, the awful miracle cannot be refused.
Well, maybe we're the ones love is gonna choose when

Love causes cancer.
Love causes cancer.

And maybe we're the ones love is gonna choose.

Yeah..Stu rocks and puts so much into words. Thanks for posting the lyrics, since..of course..I know the song, but connecting it with my thoughts now is good.

My favorite line in that song has always been "Miracles are brutal but they never make mistakes."

Yeah, that was the first thing that caught my attention the first time around.
