Cureable Disease - Blake Mills

You can taste your dream and leave me with the bill
You can miss me half as much as you say you will
You can make me believe you’d need me still
Love may be a curable disease - your dreams, they are like pills

They may dangle you like a worm out on a line,
they’ll make you the household name just like they advertised
Does it concern you none? Does it even cross your mind?
Love was just a misquotation; your dreams, they will not mind

In my search for a dream, that could be sold as it was once bought
No “best to be used by” date written on the top
I nicked you, but I was always willing to pay a cost
Love me like a fridge - whatever in me needs to be tossed

You can taste your dreams and leave me with the bill
You can miss me half as much as you say you will
You can make me believe that you need me still
Love may be a curable disease - your dreams, they are like pills
Love may be a curable disease - your dreams, they are like pills

ALBUM REVIEW: BLAKE MILLS – “HEIGH HO”

Heigh Ho mostly remains on this course for the rest of the album. It is in the great vain of inspired flame songs, and each seems to be about a different stage in a break-up. He sings “I write songs that help me deal with issues” at some point before the break-up, but the opening track “If I’m Unworthy”, sees Mills “wrapped in the sheets” asking his former lover to “look what your love can do.”

It’s fairly obvious that these songs are directed at his former flame, Danielle Haim, known mostly for her sister-band’s break-out single “The Wire.” (Which, depending on which sister was responsible for the lyrics, may be about Mills). Most notably, in the last song, “Curable Disease” he talks about the girl chasing her dreams and becoming a household name, a pursuit he doesn’t understand. “Your dreams are not mine.”

Let’s face it…. Who isn’t constantly heartbroken over Danielle?
