Fantasia Barrino - Side Effects Of You Lyrics

I was looking for a cure to pull me through
Try to decide which medicine to use
And every bottle has your name on the label
Doctor said you keep me stable
So now, I'm taking three a day to help me smile
They said I should wait and try it for a while
So I've been ignoring my symptoms
And the small print on the back of my prescription

What I'm gonna do with
Fever over 98, you hold me and my body shakes
See nobody told me, nobody told me
The side effects include
Losing balance, falling down
Sleepless nights whenever you're around
Nobody told me, nobody told me
The side effects of you
The side effects of you

I double checked the recommended dose
Cause recently my headaches getting worse
Sometimes every part of me is shaking
Is this still right pill that I'm taking

What I'm gonna do with
Fever over 98, you hold me and my body shakes
Nobody told me, nobody told me
The side effects include
Losing balance, falling down
Sleepless nights whenever you're around
Nobody told me, nobody told me
The side effects of you

You're supposed to take away the pain
But it hurts the same
And it's getting harder
I thought you were taking care of me
But I can't breathe
And it's getting harder

Fever over 98, you hold me and my body shakes
Nobody told me, nobody told me
The side effects include
Losing balance, falling down
Sleepless nights whenever you're around
Nobody told me, nobody told me
The side effects of you
The side effects of you
Baby, the side effects of you

  44. Jeremy Martinez

  45. Jp Reddy

    She should re release this song, I don't think the world was ready the first time around!

    david mclendon

    Yesssss!!!!! Say That! I don't think they EVER gone be ready tho! smh...If adele released this song it would go to #1

    Jp Reddy

    @david mclendon Yep! Both Adele & Sam Smith are played all across the airwaves, but soul singers are kept within their genres. Folks like Fantasia don't get crossover play no matter how amazing the song is.

    david mclendon

    @Jp Reddy​ it's really unfortunate that they are depriving the world of these gems. Fantasia, Jazmine Sullivan, Brandy, etc...are overlooked in today's music climate. Smh. Only 2 black girls get love on radio: Beyonce & Rihanna. And they are actually scaling back on playing Bey! :(


    Yes! I heard it on Pandora a few weeks ago and its been on repeat ever since!

    Sincerely A Girl


  46. Ebony Smith

    this is the best song😀😀

  47. shamaria hinton

  50. Valerie88 _Brynxx

    love it

  51. Nikki Hubbard

    Beyonce who???

    Dana Burks

    That's rude
    Queen Bey is better than Fantasia
    The both of great but in my opinion Bey is better.

  52. DeeDee Runningtree

    Will never understand how these lyrics dont get as much fame and whatever but beyonce's "bow down bitches, respect that, bow down", gets all the attention. Her career should be over by now. wtf is wrong with this society man..

    Marcell McKenzie

    Why are you comparing two different artist of different genres? It's not Beyonce's fault her fans actually support her.

    Tiffany Bishop

    +Marcell McKenzie if you saw award shows they were both in the same category


    Why are you complaining about Beyonce stfu

    Marcell McKenzie

    @tiffany bishop Okay regardless, this person is comparing "Side Effects to You" to a completely different song in terms of style and thats what I meant. Why not Poison, Save the Hero, and literally any of her other ballads?

  53. Alasia Thompson

    I Would Love To see Fantasia In Concert She Gives You Your Money's Worth She Really Shows Her All ! and Her Heart ..😩🙌🏾💕👑

  54. MzLadymo Lawrence-Phillips

    That's song touch me because I know What it means

  61. Jalina Bineyard

    my fav song

  62. Wannella Lawson

    She should had gotten an award for this. She can run circles around beyonce. You go girl. You have a beautiful voice.

    Terrel Boudreaux

    And she's way more entertaining


    @Terrel Boudreaux This girl does know how to entertain! I had the blessing of seeing her in concert before. We all had so much fun with her!


    Keep Beyonce out of it and stop piting them against each other

    Riah Leshaé

    Wannella Lawson thats how you know Beyonce is the standard and goal bc this song has nothing to do with her and yet her name still gets out in something

  63. Calisa Miller

    I love this song

  64. Anisah Thomas

  81. skateordizzy

    Nicki Manajaih

    Haters will hate really dats petty shit u could have kept that to yourself but I
    💜u fantashia keep being a insparashion

    Kathy Michel

    It's about not getting over someone

    Daundra Campbell

    +Kathy Michel I get more of an "I'm in a relationship with someone who turned out differently than I expected them to, and my dream relationship from Heaven has turned into a nightmare from Hell" vibe from this

  82. Quavetta Bell

    I love this chick. Her voice is beautiful and she write exactly, what we be going through. It's always better as fans when u can relate to what the artist it's a great thing because you get what the meaning of what they saying
