Medicine Lyrics

Play "Medicine"
on Amazon Music

I find it hard to say bye-bye
Even it'll stay if you and I
I find it hard to say bye-bye
How could I refuse?
Yeah you’re with me in the blues
Ever since you came into my life
In case you’re my medicine
(Yeah, you’re medicine)
Yeah, you’re...

    This song is about drugs, he stated on twitter “I think I have to come clean and admit that this was never a metaphor. It’s not about a girl. You know what it’s about. And I’ve always felt quite weird about it. And I’m kind of sorry”

    My interpretation of this song is that he is so in love with a girl clearly by the lyrics "I, I wanna marry you" but this isn't a cute love song. This song is about being addicted to someone who is bad for you. Yes medicine is good for you but opiating his head isn't good with too much "medicine". He thinks this girl is helping him but she isn't. In the beginning of the song it says "I find it hard to say bye bye even in the state of you and I", obviously their relationship isn't going well but he doesn't want to say "bye bye" to her because he is addicted to her just like how you can get addicted to medicine.

    This song sounds like a love song and in some sense it is. But it's not a typical love song. This song is about drugs. And highs. "I find it hard to say bye-bye" he's addicted and is finding it hard to break this addiction.

    "How could I refuse, yeah your with me in the blues" stating that drugs are what are with him at his darkest times. He perceives them as feeling beings. And feels as though he is abusing their loyalty to him if he only ever used them when he wants to and not when they want to be used and he feels as if he is abandoning them if he give up taking them.
