"Plague of Love" as written by Katie Melua and Rick Nowels....
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
