"Disease" as written by Rob Thomas and Mick Jagger....
Feels like you made a mistake
You made somebody's heart break
But now I have to let you go
I have to let you go

You left a stain
On every one of my good days
But I am stronger than you know
I have to let you go

No one's ever turned you over
No one's tried
To ever let you down,
Beautiful girl
Bless your heart

I got a disease, deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy baby
I can't live without you
Tell me what I am supposed to do about it
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease

Feels like you're making a mess
You're hell on wheels in a black dress
You drove me to the fire
And left me there to burn

Every little thing you do is tragic
All my life, oh was magic
Beautiful girl
I can't breathe

I got a disease, deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy baby
I can't live without you
Tell me what I am supposed to do about it
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease
I think that I'm sick
But leave me be while my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honey
Be, be strong
Keep telling myself it that won't take long till
I'm free of my disease

Yeah well free of my disease
Free of my disease

I got a disease, deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy baby
I can't live without you
Tell me what I am supposed to do about it
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease

I think that I'm sick
But leave me be while my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honey
Be, be strong
Keep telling myself it that won't take long till
I'm free of my disease
Yeah well free of my disease
Set me free of my disease

    General Commentwow...definitely my favorite MB20 song along with Bent..first song i heard for MB20 and it made me download all thier albums and now, they are one of my fav bands..gr8 lyrics and emotions...Sexy_Harriet sez it all but i feel slightly differently about it ..i think this guy is really into this girl and shes a total screw-up but there is a part of him that really wants to be with her. "I cant live witout u wat am i supposed to do about it", "Beautiful girl, bless your heart".but then hes not that happy also "u drove me to the fire and left me there to burn", "Beautiful girl, i cant breath". he feels so sick but likes the attention you get when ur sick..Thats y hes having trouble leaving and getting over her..

    The thing i really like in this song is the way he says "Hey, i'm letting go, thats enuff,,,honey" :D i think its really funny in a sad way..lol..
    my favorite line has got to be "u taste like honey honey tell me can i be ur honeybee"..and yea Gabigs, i think it sounds sexy ...lol...
    MB20 RUUUULEZZZ
