Love Causes Cancer

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, 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

(Refrain)

Melting us in the alchemy of tears
makes us sick, makes us soft, then it appears
some of us are thankful for
whatever makes us need it more

And we could be the next to have our bodies torn apart
grace is everywhere planting bombs inside of peoples' hearts
Maybe we're the ones love is gonna choose
the awful miracle cannot be refused
and 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
