Verse 1:
      Fm               Ab
I'm unwell, thanks for asking
      Bbm                      Db
Don't mind me 'cause I'm just passing by
        Fm           Ab
In this life, been a while
             Bbm              Db
Thought that you forgot, but that's alright
           Fm            Ab
How've you been? Glad to hear it
          Bbm                 Db
Just one question if you can bear it
       Fm   Ab
Do you ever miss me, too?
         Bbm                   Db
'Cause I spend my days still thinking of you

Pre-Chorus:
         Fm               Ab
Should I take the pill to numb the pain?
            Bbm       Db
Change the chemicals inside my brain
  Fm      Ab
I worry I won't be the same
      Bbm                    Db
But I guess that that's the point

Chorus:
        Fm         Ab
Can you medicate a broken heart?
          Db           Bbm
Make your tragedies a work of art
Fm         Ab
Medicate a broken heart
           Db                Bbm
Build your walls up just to rip them apart
        Fm                     Ab
Is this the way to fix this or is this a quick fix?
  Db               Bbm
I really couldn't say
        Fm        Ab         Bbm          Db
Can you medicate, medicate, medicate it away?

Verse 2:
         Fm                  Ab
Doctor's smile, kill me with kindness
          Bbm            Db
And don't ask about the side effects
        Fm                       Ab
Swallow hard, kills sadness with science
        Bbm              Db
But the aftermath might make you sick

Pre-Chorus:
         Fm               Ab
Should I take the pill to numb the pain?
            Bbm       Db
Change the chemicals inside my brain
  Fm      Ab
I worry I won't be the same
      Bbm                    Db
But I guess that that's the point

Chorus:
        Fm         Ab
Can you medicate a broken heart?
          Db           Bbm
Make your tragedies a work of art
Fm         Ab
Medicate a broken heart
           Db                Bbm
Build your walls up just to rip them apart
        Fm                     Ab
Is this the way to fix this or is this a quick fix?
  Db               Bbm
I really couldn't say
        Fm        Ab         Db           Bbm
Can you medicate, medicate, medicate it away?

Post-Chorus:
Fm     Ab
   Whoa, whoa

   Oh, medicate it away
Fm     Ab
   Whoa, whoa
   Bbm  Db
   Oh, medicate it away

Bridge:
Fm                    Ab
   They say give yourself a break
Db                  Bbm
   They told me to medicate
Fm               Ab         Db        Bbm
   I don't wanna medicate

Chorus:
            Fm         Ab
Oh, can you medicate a broken heart?
          Db           Bbm
Make your tragedies a work of art
Fm         Ab
Medicate a broken heart
           Db                Bbm
Build your walls up just to rip them apart
        Fm                     Ab
Is this the way to fix this or is this a quick fix?
  Db               Bbm
I really couldn't say
        Fm        Ab         Db           Bbm
Can you medicate, medicate, medicate it away?

Post-Chorus:

    + 4 and -1 are quite easy the chords are easier for +4 but it’s a bit hard to sing

  2. bleedingmagic

    +2 is the correct key

  3. Victoria DePastino

    I submitted different chords a day or two after the song was released that never went through, but are in the right key and match the original better:
    Gm, Eb, Bb, D7. (In that order, though I skipped the Bb in some parts like the pre-chorus.) God knows why they weren’t approved.

  4. falafels4life

    +1 is amazing for beginners
    its okay with a higher voice
    does anyone know a strumming pattern better than ddddu?

  5. It says to play Ab on fret 2 but I think it sounds better and more like the original on fret 3
