I suggest play this with a power chord or a barre chord instead of just a simple chord. To make it sound more rock, It also sounded weird when you play it with a basic simple chords,
And also the key isn't stable, there's a lot of chords that wasn't belong to the key we are playing.

[Verse 1]
      E      B
2020 enemies....
               C       A
What a dismal odyssey...
             G#m     B  
Held by only apathy....
              C  C#m
Is there any remedy?
                       E         B
'Cause we bicker over Listerine....
                     C       A     
With Twitter as our liturgy....
              G#m     B 
What a crummy legacy....
      C  C#m  
2020 enemies
[Chorus]
           E    B
If I were you.....
             C     G 
And you were me........
                   A    G#m  
Would we still be doomed....
        F#m    F
To disagree?......

And you'd never see.....

My point of view.....
           E     B    C    A
If I were you...................

Hey Romeo, it's Juliet.....
                     C         A
Are you Montague or Capulet?.....
                    G#m    B                  C  
Or some denigrating apathetic insult that we both forget?
                       E        B
'Cause fake is on the internet....
                    C      A
And fear is on the TV set.....

Outrage is the habitat.....

For 2020 novelettes

[Chorus]

If I were you (If I were you)
             C                 G  
And you were me (And you were me)
                   A                         G#m
Would we still be doomed (Would we still be doomed) 
        F#m            F 
To disagree? (To disagree?)
                E                   B    
'Cause you'd be me ('Cause you'd be me)
           C              G    
If I were you (If I were you)
                 A                   G#m

[Bridge]
E                       C          G     
..Hey babe, we're the dinosaurs (Oh-oh)
E                               C               G        
..I get the feeling we've been here before (Oh-oh-oh)
E                             C            G 
..Ain't it clear what we're aiming for? (Oh-oh)
E                         C
..Hey babe, we're the dinosaurs
 B                        E  
Yeah, but what if me and you
                    C#m   
Were in each other shoes
                  A   
Could we break through?
E                 F#m                B   
..To somewhere different, somewhere new
                            E  
'Cause if you're stuck with me
B/Eb                         C#m    B 
......I guess I'm stuck with you......
          A             G#m                F#m              B  
Could we rise above the scars that we both put each other through

[Chorus]
           E                         B   
If I were you (I think I'm ready to try us)
            C#m                        D   
And you were me (I think I'm ready to try)
                     A                     G#m   
Would we still be doomed (To put the past behind us)
      F#m                             B 
To disagree? (Yeah, to put the past behind)
                E                         B    
'Cause you'd be me ('Cause it's already behind us)
          C#m                               D   
If I were you (Yeah, I'm sick of falling behind)
           A                       G#m   
And all I see (I think I'm ready to try us)
                    F#m                            B  
Is what you put me through (Maybe I'd be ready to try)

[Outro]
           E                   B           C  
If I were you and you were me, I would be you
      G                 A  
And then we'd both be true
G#m                F#m   F
I wonder what we'd do......
E                 B           C
..If you were me, I would be you
  G                    A    
Would one plus one be two?
   G#m             G    F
I wonder what we'd do...... 
           E
If I were you
