Issues Lyrics

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,...

    Funny, I have Bipolar1. I took this to fit the struggles of maintaining a relationship while suffering bipolar. We have issues and out partners have them too. But, involved in our care in another is how much they *don't* have themselves. I feel like manic episodes make us forgotten when it comes to recognition in the mental health community, as in we are not always I'll. I speak from experience, mania is a existence of madness. Do not undermi e our suffer g on both ends of our condition #bipolar

    I've been diagnosed Bipolar & it fits me too. The fast hard fall in love but when it's over it's over. Love the song.

    Just heard this song on the Billboard Music awards. Totally reminded me of gf that fits diagnosis criteria for borderline along with the difficult challenges that poses for maintaining a healthy relationship in terms of emotionally disregulating from idealizing to dissing partner due to abandonment fears, displaced issues from parental disconnect from adoption, etc. Rollercoaster ride of intense romantic passion to unfounded jelousy, rejection, threats to self harm, etc. Sadly unsustainable without possible 'dialectical behavioural therapy'. :(

    I love your work. It is an inspiration for me. Your song 'Issues' help me through a lot. When my partner and I have problems I always listen to your song. Don't ever stop writing.

    I've been diagnose with Borderline Personality Disorder, I feel that this song perfectly fits it, "when I'm down I get real down, when I'm night I don't come down", "I got issues, and one of them is how bad I need you".
