[Verse 1]

Em
Now I'm in town, break it down
Thinking of making a new sound
G
Playing a different show every night
In front of a new crowd
A
That's you now, hello, ciao
Seems that life is great now
C                  D
See me lose focus, as I sing to you loud
Em                   G
I can't, no, I won't hush
                                 A
I'll say the words that make you blush
                    C             D
I'm gonna sing this now
Em
See, I'm true, my songs are where my heart is
G
I'm like glue, I stick to other artists
A
I'm not you, now that would be disastrous
C
Let me sing and do my thing
D
And move to greener pastures
Em
See, I'm real, I do it all, it's all me
G
I'm not fake, don't ever call me lazy
A
I won't stay put
Give me the chance to be free
C
Suffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me


[Chorus]

(The chorus has a same pattern of the intro)

Em                               G
You need me, man, I don't need you
                                  A
You need me, man, I don't need you
                                  C           D
You need me, man, I don't need you at all you need me man I dont need you

Em                               G
You need me, man, I don't need you
                                  A
You need me, man, I don't need you
                                  C           D
You need me, man, I don't need you at all you need me man I dont need you


[Verse 2]

Em
I sing and write my own tune

and I write my own verse, hell
G
Don't need another wordsmith

to make the tune sell?
A
Call yourself a singer-writer

You're just bluffing
C
Your name's on the credits
         D
And you didn't write nothing
Em
I sing fast

I know that all my shit's cool
G
I will blast

And I didn't go to Brit School
A
I came fast with the way I act, right
C                       D
I can't last, if I'm smoking on a crack pipe
Em
I won't be a product of my genre
G
My mind will always be stronger than my songs are
A
Never believe the bullshit that fake guys feed to ya
C                                  D
Always read the stories that you hear in Wikipedia
Em
And musically I'm demonstrating
G
When I perform live, feels like I am meditating
A
Times at The Enterprise when some fella filmed me
C                           D
A young singer-writer like Gabriella Cilmi


[Chorus]

Em                               G
You need me, man, I don't need you
                                  A
You need me, man, I don't need you
                                  C           D
You need me, man, I don't need you at all you need me man I dont need you

Em                               G
You need me, man, I don't need you
                                  A
You need me, man, I don't need you
                                  C           D
You need me, man, I don't need you at all you need me man I dont need you

Im just gonna skip all the way to beginning of the instrumental part. (after he sings 
"My eyes are red")
Again, listen to the song to get the timing right.
just slide to the next chord while strumming


e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---3-----------------------------3------5----8---10-----0-------------------|
G|---2-------12~~---12~~-----------2------4----0---0------0-------------------|      repeat
D|---0-----------------------------0------0----0---0------0-------------------|
A|---0-----------------------------0------0----0---0------0-------------------|
D|---0---------------------13\-----0h3----5----8---10-----3b------------------|

       (strum many times)
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----3------------------------4-------8------10-------0--------------------------|
G|----2------------------------5-------0------0--------0--------------------------|
D|----0--------------------- --0-------0------0--------0--------------------------|
A|----0------------------------0-------0------0--------0--------------------------|
D|----0------------------------4-------8------10-------3b-------------------------|


  he hammers this in some part
    PM---------------------------------------------|
e|---------------------------------------||--------|
B|---6-----------------------------------||---5/6--|  repeat as needed
G|---5-----------------------------------||---5/5--|
D|---7-----------------------------------||---5/7--|
A|---5-----------------------------------||---3/5--|
D|---------------------------------------||--------|
        (strum this part palm muted)

 this is where the looping starts

    PM--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---6-----3/5-------5/---------------------------------------------------------|
G|---5-----3/5-------5/---------------------------------------------------------|
D|---7-----3/5-------5/---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---5-----1/3-------3/---------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(I'm sure you can figure out the drum stuff so I will skip it)


e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---2---0h2------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---0---0--------8---10-----0------------------------------------------------|   repeat
A|---0---0--------8---10-----0------------------------------------------------|
D|---0---0--------8---10-----3b-----------------------------------------------|

he does this in a tricky way so I'll just tab out on how he pick it.
you need to listen very carefully in this part.
just practice and you will get the feel of it.

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----12--12--x--12--x-12--12--x--12--x--12--x--12-x-12--10--10--------------|  repeat
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|


e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----10--10--x--10--x-10--10--x--10--x--10--x--10-x-10--9----9--------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

I won't tab where he strums when he loops his voice because he just varies it every time.
it's all the same chords anyway, he just plays it differently.

this is how he ends the song

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----6------------------------6\------------------------------------------------|
G|----5------------------------5\------------------------------------------------|
D|----7------------------------7\------------------------------------------------|
A|----5------------------------5\------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
         (upward strum)

Actually your intro needs to be slid two frets up the neck to:
e|----------------7-----7------7-----7/--------------------------------------|
B|------------5-----5------5------5-----------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

it's because the tab is relative to capo that's why I tab it like that.
thanks for pointing out though :)
