"Medicine For Melancholy" is a single by Rivers Cuomo.

Overview

Rivers announced the song via Instagram on March 15, 2018 [1]. The song was produced in Ableton by AJR, who had recently featured Rivers on one of their songs, "Sober Up". The song is not part of any larger project; Rivers stated in 2017 about the Alone albums, "It’s kind of embarrassing. If you search for my name on Spotify, that’s what comes up. I should put out something more pro also so people don’t think that’s all I do." [2] The song was also released around the time of a brief solo acoustic tour, during which Rivers played the song at every show.

Lyrics

Dum dee dee dee dee
Dum dee dee dee dee dee dum
Dum dee dee dee dee
Dum dee dee dee dee dee dee dee

Shut me off, put me in a dream
I don’t wanna think
Life is pain, puzzles make me hurt
I wanna go extinct
No reason for me to struggle
Just be there when I wake up
You’re my medicine for melancholy
Let me take you in
You’re my medicine for melancholy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

We got that Friday feeling
We got that Friday feeling
Can I hang out with you for a bit?
You’re my medicine for melancholy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I wanna take you in

Recently I’ve been sleeping well
I think I might be healed
Shooting stars, I can feel you near
Are you even real?
No reason for me to struggle
Just be there when I wake up
You’re my medicine for melancholy
Let me take you in
You’re my medicine for melancholy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

No reason for me to struggle
My life is better with you
You’re my medicine for melancholy
Let me take you in
You’re my medicine for melancholy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Dum dee dee dee dee
Dum dee dee dee dee dee dee dum
You’re my you’re my you’re my
