New Lyrics – Is There Anything Worse? (Than Falling in Love)

I’ve been trying to write a song a day, and so far I’ve been successful! (YES!!!!) 5 Days in and 5 new songs. Most of them will never see the light of day, but still….

Here’s the lyrics to tonight’s song. I hope you dig. And I hope to see you at Lestat’s on Saturday night!


Is There Anything Worse Than Falling in Love
Written by Josh Damigo

I can’t breathe
And my hands go numb
My heart starts beating like
The sound of the war drums

My brain slows down
And my knees shake
Like it’s 1989
And I’m on the Golden Gate

Well I thought that I was in the clear
That I could shake this off
Is there anything worse
Is there anything worse
Than falling in love

My muscles ache
And my words get slurred
It’s like I’m parallel parking
On the edge of a curb

There’s butterflies
and My mouth goes dry
I just can’t keep myself straight
When I look in your eyes


I wish that I could be
One of those guys
With the poker face
And all the smooth lines

As much as I beg
And as much as I try
It never seems to turn out right

Is there anything worse
Is there anything worse
Than Falling in love


About Josh Damigo

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his homemade EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident, Damigo 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, Eric Hutchinson, 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 release, 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, Damigo spent much of year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his latest album, "Just Give Me a Call", available now, on Randm Records. From the up-tempo single, “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.
