Liner Notes

A song inspired by an off-hand comment from a coworker during a meeting; the term “Love Fungus” somehow sparked a bluesy melody and lyrics that just sort of flowed onto the pages of my engineering workbook as fast as I could write. Unfortunately I’m not really sure what was discussed during the meeting, but hopefully no important action items were assigned to me...

Even funnier, I’ve been playing for years and tried repeatedly to write a song with lyrics but with no success, yet, somehow, a tongue-in-cheek reference to a made-up STD inspired me. Go figure.

Lyrics

I got a story it pains me to tell
I got a story ’bout my journey through hell
So take a listen, boy, and heed what I say
You could be sorry if don't and you just walk away

This story started with a beautiful girl
I wanted her like nothing else in this world
I should have listened to that voice in my mind
I should have run I should have hid I should have left her behind

I’ve been infected, deep down in my heart
Cold woman’s hatred broke my soul apart

Love Fungus... She’s breaking my soul
Love Fungus... It’s infected my life
Love Fungus... It’s taking control
Gotta kill this fungus and erase this disease from my life.

First signs of trouble, she’d scream and she’d fight
I took the blame and tried to make it all right
Next thing you know we’re fighting every day
Her angel face could no longer keep my questions at bay

I’ve been infected, deep down in my heart
Cold woman's hatred broke my soul apart

Love Fungus... It’s breaking my brain
Love Fungus... Driving me insane
Love Fungus... It’s taking control
Gotta kill this fungus and erase this disease from my life.

Love Fungus... It’s breaking my soul
Love Fungus... Infected my life
Love Fungus... It’s taking control
Gotta kill this fungus and erase this disease from...

Love Fungus... Breaking my mind
Love Fungus... Taking all of my time
Love Fungus... I'm wracking my brain
Love Fungus... Is driving me insane
