Pills and potions
We're overdosing
I’m angry but I still love you
Pills and potions
We're overdosing
Can't stand it, but I still love you
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I...

    The lyrics mean that despite the fact that the person that she loved did something (untasteful) bad, although she will never be able to live with that person again or have them so entwined in her life, she'll always love them because there will always be that part that will love them. Even though they did something bad and she cannot be in their life anymore.
    (Nicki mentioned something similar in an interview) this>>> I think it's about nicki and lil kim and how lil kim was talking trash about nicki in the game and kim made some song about hating nicki for 'stealing her song' and nicki's like i looked up to you kim and you acted like you were my friend but then you were fake but even though you did all this bad shit to me i still look up to you i still love you and respect you but ill reflect on you.

    My personal interpretation is that of someone who is hurt so much by the one they love and had all the reasons to let them go but they just can't and keep loving this person as if they were under a magical spell. Their love is like a drug addiction and magical spell that they just can't break or get over nomatter what

    “Pills and potions” stand for all the different ways we medicate ourselves — whether it’s literal medicine, illicit drugs and alcohol, or just any coping mechanism on an emotional level. It’s something we cling to when we’ve been wronged by those who love us, something we get high on to forget the pain and anger.

    But in the end, love transcends all of that. Love continues to exist past the hurt and past the O.D. of pills and potions we use to mask it.

    Pills and portions ware overdosing,am angry but i still love ya.
    She meant that she take drugs to the extent of over dose in order to heal depression and forget but they do nothing to her brain.
    Am angry but i still love you,
    She was distressed and anoiyed but the heart was locked at the first,she still love.
    She added verses showing that was caring and warned the lover but the lover took for granted,after the incidence she was hurt but never forget both the incidence and her love

    Pills and potions



    We're overdosing


    I'm still angry but I still love you



    So what she talking about is her feelings got hurt cause her boyfriend was cheating on her and she was abusing drugs and alcohol thinking that her emotions will go away, but now understands that it only makes it worse fo her and her boyfriend

    I think that the boy she's singing about is doing drugs (the pills and potions). And she doesn't want him to but she loves him even though he's doing it.

    This song hits home. I had a friend overdose and die on January 22,2014 and another friend sho died from yet another overdose on February 12,2015. I relate to this song because even though they died and I'm angry, sad, amd resentful I still love them. Sometimes I try to numb out the pain but it never works, i n which I end up getting high off their memories because that's the only thing that I can cling onto.

    She's angry for loving him even though he has done something wrong to her. She wants to lash out at him and she is so hurt by this wrong that he's done. Possibly cheated. She then turns to pills and alcohol to soothe her anger, but it only makes it worse. She still thinks about him all the time and then takes more and more until she overdoses on those drugs.

    Its about a drug addict who has someone who cares for him and but even though he is angry for him doing that he still loves him.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think she wrote this song after lil Wayne's overdose about a half a year ago mixed with a few other emotions she was going through.

    Your all wrong... Love is a potion! Natural chemicals coursing through our veins all day long, heroin and crack cocaine have nothing on the addictive power of love. Mix that with some pills & other potions and BLAM!!! You have a great song.

    I think pills and potions is about someone who did somthing to you that hurt you. And you tried to give them advice they didn't follow and they did somthing hateful but instead of taking the anger out on the person you take pills to hide the pain

    I don't know if its about drugs. I see it as something bad happening to someone she obviously loves there's a lot of commotion and people saying he/she is bad. She loves them to much to let others change the way she feels. "In due time we'll be fine, I still love". I guess like others have said that is real love.
