You got to take the good with the bad
Love what you got, remember what you had
Always forgive but never forget
Learn from mistakes, but never regret
This song is full of deep, therapeutic advice that applies to plenty of real-world relationship situations. But in this case, it’s all about drugs.
“Take the good with the bad”-There are many bad aspects of drugs (that often outweigh the good aspects). Addiction, dependence, brain damage, and death are a few to name. Although, some drugs can be used for certain medical conditions, their snare is one of which it is hard to get out.
“Love what you got, remember what you had.”-This seems to be more of a girlfriend themed line rather than drugs. You gotta love the person you have, but remember what you did in the past (the drug part of the line). “Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it” -George Santayana
The other lines are pretty similar, and all go along a common theme: Drug references, while outlining a complex love relationship with an underlying double meaning of relations with a female.
