Medicine

  • And I feel again losing my mind
    Banging my head up against the wall
    Staring at nothing cause I can't sleep at night
    Can't make it stop, yeah I think too much
    What do I do? Falling apart
    I need a shock straight to my heart
    No one would want to be in my shoes right now, oh

    I don't reach for the bottle of whisky
    Straight on the rocks
    But you won't see me popping the pills
    Po-po-popping the pills
    Cause if I want the pain to go away
    In a second make it fade
    You're the only thing that will
    You're my medicine, medicine
    My medicine, medicine
    My medicine

    You know you're an expert at complicating things
    That's how I'm wired, believe me it's no fun
    But you make the war seem like such an easy game
    Keeps me and my arguments come under
    Down in the trenches, you are the white flag
    Make me surrender
    Want you so bad
    Baby don't stop what you started
    Don't ever be done, oh

    I always throw the bottle of whisky
    Straight on the rocks
    But you won't see me popping the pills
    Po-po-popping the pills
    Cause if I want the pain to go away
    In a second make it fade
    You're the only thing that will
    You're my medicine, medicine
    My medicine, medicine
    My medicine

    You make it all better, better
    You make me feel home
    You make it all better, better
    You make me feel home

    I don't reach for the bottle of whisky
    No you won't see me popping the pills
    Cause if I want the pain to go away
    In a second make it fade
    You're the only thing that will
    You're my medicine, medicine
    My medicine, medicine
    My medicine

    You make it all better, better
    You make me feel home
    You make it all better, better
    You make me feel home

    You make it all better, better
    You make me feel home
    You make it all better, better
    You make me feel home
