"You make me weak/But you make me strong" —Robin Thicke
The best medicines are the ones that hurt you the most, bringing you to rock bottom in order to rebuild everything you are. For Thicke, it is no different; his woman both nearly kills him and gives him life. Playing on the double meaning of “weak,” both an actual weakening and the romantic “knocked me off my feet” idea, Thicke watches the girl he wants slowly tear him to pieces. Still, her torment is confidence, making him stronger and more able to hold himself up. This is the classic “Drain You”-style master.
