Lyrics with chords

VERSE

		    Cadd9            D
		I'm jealous, I'm overzealous...
		         G/B                             Cadd9
		When I'm down, I get real down, when I'm high, I don't come down
		      Cadd9            D
		I get angry... baby, believe me
		        G/B                                    Cadd9
		I could love you just like that... and I could leave you just as fast

PRE-CHORUS

		    Cadd9        D
		But you don't... judge me...
		              G                            Em
		'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too
		    Cadd9        D
		No, you don't... judge me
		              G                            Em
		'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too

CHORUS

		             Cadd9                     D
		'Cause I got issues... But you got 'em too
		            G                               Em
		So give 'em all to me and I'll give mine to you
		            Cadd9              D
		Bask in the glory...of all our problems
		          G                                Em
		'Cause we got the kind of love it takes to solve 'em
		            Cadd9    D         
		Yeah, I got issues..... and one of them is how bad I need you

I hope this helps!
