REWRITTEN LYRICS

[Verse 1]
  I'm reckless - a young kid with a death wish  
Don't tell me to calm down
 Let me go, let me knock him out
 I ain't easy, baby believe me
 I turned out just like my dad
I shut down I'm feeling sad

[Pre-Chorus]
But you don't judge me
 'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too  
No, you don't judge me  
'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too

[Chorus]
  'Cause I got issues, but you got 'em too
So give 'em all to me and I'll give mine to you
Bask in the glory of all our problems  
'Cause we got the kind of love it takes to solve 'em  
Yeah, I got issues
 And one of them is how bad I need you

 
[Verse 2]
You're fucking gorgeous
But you try to use it against me
When you're feeling insecure 'bout the wrong things
I am certain that you and I are worth it
Give me all your flawed emotion
 We are flawed but we're not broken

[Pre-Chorus]
But you don't judge me
 'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too  
No, you don't judge me  
'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too

[Chorus]
  'Cause I got issues, but you got 'em too
So give 'em all to me and I'll give mine to you
Bask in the glory of all our problems  
'Cause we got the kind of love it takes to solve 'em  
Yeah, I got issues
 And one of them is how bad I need you

[Bridge]
I got issues, you got 'em too
And one of them is how bad I need you
I got issues, you got 'em too

[Chorus]
'Cause I got issues, but you got 'em too
So give 'em all to me and I'll give mine to you
Bask in the glory, of all our problems
'Cause we got the kind of love it takes to solve 'em
Yeah, I got issues (I got)
And one of them is how bad I need you (You got 'em too)
Yeah, I got issues (I got issues)
And one of them is how bad I need you (You got 'em too)
Yeah, I got issues (I got)
And one of them is how bad I need you

ORIGINAL LYRICS

[Verse 1]
I'm jealous, I'm overzealous
When I'm down I get real down
When I'm high I don't come down
But I get angry, baby, believe me
I could love you just like that
And I can leave you just as fast

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But you don't judge me
'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too
No, you don't judge me
'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too

[Chorus]
'Cause I got issues, but you got 'em too
So give 'em all to me and I'll give mine to you
Bask in the glory, of all our problems
'Cause we got the kind of love it takes to solve 'em
Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad I need you

[Verse 2]
You do shit on purpose
You get mad and you break things
Feel bad, try to fix things
But you're perfect, poorly wired circuit
And got hands like an ocean
Push you out, pull you back in

[Pre-Chorus 2]
'Cause you don't judge me
'Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too
No, you don't judge me
'Cause you see it from the same point of view

[Chorus]
'Cause I got issues, but you got 'em too
So give 'em all to me and I'll give mine to you
Bask in the glory, of all our problems
'Cause we got the kind of love it takes to solve 'em
Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad I need you

[Bridge]
I got issues, you got 'em too
And one of them is how bad I need you
I got issues, you got 'em too

[Chorus]
'Cause I got issues, but you got 'em too
So give 'em all to me and I'll give mine to you
Bask in the glory, of all our problems
'Cause we got the kind of love it takes to solve 'em
Yeah, I got issues (I got)
And one of them is how bad I need you (You got 'em too)
Yeah, I got issues (I got issues)
And one of them is how bad I need you (You got 'em too)
Yeah, I got issues (I got)
And one of them is how bad I need you
