Song versions: 1 2 3 4 5 6
Chords: D, Dsus4, Em, Em7, Em/B, G, C
:::> Capo on 4th fret

C (x32010)  *on the verses where Ariana sings do it as (x32013)
Bm7b13 (x20233)
D (xx0232)
Dsus4 (x00233)
Em (022000)
Em7 (x22022)
Em/B (x22003) 
G (320033) */(320003)



You can go ahead and do the G on most lines of the verses as a three (or more) 
strum pattern of G as |(320033)-(320003)-(320003)| [just lifting and returning 
your ring finger from the B string]. While on the chorus, bridge and rap part, 
the first G chord should be done as a regular one and on the second do it as 
the one with your ring finger on B as to change the tone from Big Sean/Iggy to 
Ariana which is why the C chord is also done without your pinky on the high E.


Since the phorus is mostly silent beats I made a kind part that fits in 
acoustically but you can just try slapping or making your own sound or chords.
It should be one strum each and a slap on the strings/mute between Em7

Verse I:

I know you're never gonna wake up

I gotta give up, but it's you?
C                       D
I know I shouldn't ever call back

Or let you come back, but it's you
C                       D
Everytime you touch me

And say you love me
C                       D
I get a little bit breathless

I shouldn't want it, but it's you

Pre-Chorus:

C            D             Em/B          G

You sayin' that you know, but I really, really doubt you
Em                    G
Understand my life is easy when I ain't around you

Iggy Iggy, too biggie to be here stressin'
Em                                     G
I'm thinkin' I love the thought of you more than I love your presence
        C                 D
And the best thing now is probably for you to exit
Em                          G
I let you go, let you back, I finally learned my lesson
C                        D
