Ariana Grande - In My Head

[Intro: Doug Middlebrook]
Here's the thing: you’re in love with a version of a person that you've created in your head, that you are trying to but cannot fix. Uh, the only person you can fix is yourself. I love you, this has gone on way too long. Enough is enough. I'm two blocks away, I’m coming over.​

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
Painted a picture, I thought I knew you well
I got a habit of seeing what isn't there
Caught in the moment, tangled up in your sheets
When you broke my heart, I said you only wanted half of me

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
My imagination's too creative
They see demon, I see angel, angel (Angel), angel
Without the halo, wingless angel

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Falling, falling, but I never thought you'd leave me
Falling, falling, needed something to believe in, oh
I thought you were the one
But it was all in my head
It was all in my head (Skrrt, skrrt)

[Post-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Yeah, look at you (You), boy, I invented you
Your Gucci tennis shoes, runnin' from your issues
Cardio good for the heart (For the heart)
I figured we could work it out, hmm

"in my head" is a song by American singer Ariana Grande, on her fifth studio album, "thank u, next". The track was written by Grande, Lindel Deon Nelson Jr., and Jameel Roberts alongside its producers Andrew "Pop" Wansel, Nathan "Happy" Perez and NOVA Wav's members Brittany "Chi" Coney and Denisia Andrews. It is a trap and R&B song that Grande says talks about "being in love with a version of somebody you've created in your head". Critics debated whether the subject of the song was comedian Pete Davidson or rapper Mac Miller, both former partners of Grande, and praised its personal lyrics. Following the release of "thank u, next", it entered the charts in a number of countries including: Australia, Canada, Greece, the United Kingdom, the United States. An unannounced music video for "in my head", directed by Bardia Zeinali, was released on July 9, 2019. It was produced by the team at Vogue, who interviewed and featured Grande on their cover for the August 2019 issue. It depicts the singer with her signature style as she dances and performs the track in a bright white room that represents her own mind. It received positive reviews from critics, who noted its minimalist style and compared it with clips released in the late 1990s. Grande never performed the song live, but the studio version was played as an interlude during her Sweetener World Tour (2019).
