I Didn’t Mean to Fall in Love with You

Wrote a new song instead of leaving for Ventura when I planned to… (oops…)
Here’s the lyrics. I’d post a video, but having a sync issue with my mac… (boooooooo…) The song is about falling in love with a girl, and your girlfriend who has a really big brother, finds out… (uh oh….)

See you tonight in Ventura!!!

I Didn’t Mean to Fall in Love With You

Written by Josh Damigo

AM
You know I did everything I could
G
But girl, you look so good
Am
And I took all of my own advice
G
But you still crept into my mind

C
And I can’t help to feel this way
G
When you stand so close to me
Am
And I don’t know what I’m to do
C D G
Cause I didn’t mean to fall in love with you

You’re running circles in my head
Making me say some stupid shit
And now I think my girlfriend knows
Cause I seen her packing up her clothes

I hear her brother at my door
You know on his worst day he’s 6 foot 4
But I tell him, “what was I s’posed to do”?
Cause I didn’t mean to fall in love with you

Somebody call me 911,
And get my heart and ambulance,
Cause You stopped it dead in it’s tracks
Maybe CPR can bring it back?

So kiss my lips and touch my chest
And lay my body down to rest
I don’t know what else I can do
I didn’t mean to fall in love with you

About Joshua Lodge

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses and clubs. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident Josh retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for "Best Acoustic" and "Best Local Recording," opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third EP, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Josh spent much of the year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his album I Will Be There out now on Randm Records. From the joyous encouragement of “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
