“I picked you up like a virus” Tim Minchin’s Love Song | You Grew On Me | Universal Comedy

Here is the romantic side to Tim Minchin, and his song about what love means to him.

To help you through your self-isolation or quarantined state, here’s an anthem from the genius songwriter and star of Jesus Christ Superstar, Tim Minchin.

OH AND REMEMBER TO WASH YOUR HANDS

Taken from his 2008 special F*cking Rock.

You grew on me like a tumour
And you spread through me like malignant melanoma
And now you’re in my heart
I should’ve cut you out back at the start
Now I’m afraid there’s no cure for me
No dose of emotional chemotherapy
Can halt my pathetic decline
I should’ve had you removed back when you were benign
I picked you up like a virus
Like meningococcal meningitis
Now I can’t feel my legs
When you’re around I can’t get out of bed
I’ve left it too late to risk an operation
I know there’s no hope of a clean amputation
The successful removal of you
Would probably kill me, too
You grew on me like carcinoma
Crept up on me like untreated glaucoma
Now I find it hard to see
This untreated dose of you has blinded me
I should’ve consulted my local physician
I’m stuck now forever with this tunnel vision
My periphery is screwed
Wherever I look now, all I see is you
When we first met you seemed fickle and shallow
But my armour was no match for your poison arrow
You are wedged inside my chest
If I tried to take you out now I might bleed to death
I’m feeling short of breath
You grew on me like a tumour
And you spread through me like malignant melanoma
I guess I never knew
How fast a little mole can grow… on… you
