“Side Effects of You”

Three years after attempting suicide with an overdose of aspirin and sleeping pills, Fantasia melodically confronts the root of the issue on the title track. “Was looking for a cure to pull me through,” she begins the heartfelt song. “Tried to decide what medicine to use. And every bottle had your name on the label.” The lyrics, while hitting the issue of drugging ones problems away, are impressively poetic.
