Pick it up, pick it all up.
And start again.
You've got a second chance,
You could go home.
Escape it all.
It's just irrelevant.

It's just medicine.
It's just medicine.

You could still be,
What you want to,
What you said you were
When I met you.

You've got a warm heart,
You've got a beautiful brain,
But it's disintegrating
From all the medicine.
From all the medicine.
From all the medicine.
Medicine.

You could still be,
What you want to be,
What you said you were,
When you met me.

You could still be,
What you want to,
What you said you were,
When I met you,
When you met me,
When I met you.

Ooh, ooh, ooh...
Medicine, ooh, ahh...

    This whole ep speaks to me a lot about stages in relationships, and with this song i get the feeling of a call to hope and move past whatever mistakes have happened and still be the people together and individually you wanted to be when you met. It's a beautiful song about the redemptive quality of perseverant love.

    This song could be about people who have all these ambitions and know who they are. It is in the view of the girl who him/her meets. He/she takes drugs (could be alcohol) and she's saying you can still be what you want to, what you said you were when they met (that's in the lyrics. If you read/listen to the lyrics it all makes sense.
