I'm inflamed with desire and its spreading like wildfire
She doesn't know it but she'll soon be mine
Its just a question of time

I'm insanely obsessed and I simply will not rest
She doesn't know it yet but she's the one
And I won't stop until I'm done

And the heart that she has stolen has swollen twice its natural size
I've lost six pounds since I laid eyes on her

I'm in love with a girl she's affected my whole world
She doesn't know it but she's inside me
And now I'm gone completely

She explodes like a fist and she burns from the first kiss
I haven't told her but she's all mine now
I knew some how I'd catch her
Rubella, Rubella, Rubella

    General CommentFor anyone who may not know, 'rubella' is a type of infectious disease, which also happens to sound a bit like a girl's name. most of us know that feeling of being 'infected' by someone... which is what makes this song great.

    My OpinionI really wanted the lyrics to be "She explodes like a CYST and she burns from the first kiss." I think it would have fit the song so much better! But being honest and listening to the pronunciation, it's clear he is singing "fist." Not sure why. Maybe they changed it because "cyst" was too gross-sounding?

    General CommentThis song was in the movie Angus (which was the most amazing movie of my childhood, and they cant release it on dvd, sadly)... and its exactly what it says. This guy sees this girl, but she doesnt see him...

    General Commentwas wondering what the lines

    "And the heart that she has stollen has now
    swollen to twice its natural size.
    I've lost six pounds since I laid eyes on her."


    cant find the meaning or even close to a theory any ideas?

    General CommentTo expand on spamuel's point, Rubella is the scientific term for chicken pox. Josh Caterer is using the metaphor to describe his romance, a very well used one may i add. Chicken pox is something which is 'safe' to have when you're young but dangerous to have when you're an adult, and you can only get it once in your life. As such that makes this love all the more strong. Great song.
