#Lyrics Issues-Julia Michaels

I’m jealous, I’m overzealous
When I’m down, I get real down
When I’m high, I don’t come down
I get angry, baby, believe me
I could love you just like that
And I could leave you just this fast

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

‘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

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

‘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 same point of view

‘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

And one of them is how bad I need you
(I got issues, you got ’em too)

‘Cause I got issues
(I got)
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
(You got ’em too)
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
(I got issues)
Of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love
(You got ’em too)
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

 

This is such a simple song in terms of complexity. The actual musical part is not to complex the lyrics are straightforward but it holds so much meaning.

Julia Michaels wrote this song in regards to the issues in her relationship. They have since broken up but he congratulated her on the song.

How many of you feel like this could relate to at least one of your relationships?

I know I do.

For instance, my first boyfriend liked to flirt with girls right in front of me. If they ever gave him an inkling that he had a chance, he would dump me. But when the left him flat on his face, he would want me to take him back. I was 14 so of course I did. I was young and dumb. But even today, I still consider him a friend. We grew up together since we were 6.

But Even just the part that says when i’m down  im real down and when im high i won’t come down. That speaks such volumes. Especially in regards to depression or anxiety. Life is a roller coaster and for those who experience mental illness, the ups and downs are to the extreme.

But the song is about both parties having issues. It’s like a toxic relationship.I have seen so many toxic relationships.

What is your take on the song?
