About in my head

"In My Head" is a song by American singer Ariana Grande, on her fifth studio album, Thank U, Next (2019). 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).

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 thing 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

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

My imagination's too creative
They see demon 
I see angel, angel, angel (angel) 
Without a halo, wingless angel

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 (skrt, skrt)

Yeah, look at you, boy, I invented you
Your Gucci tennis shoes running from your issues
Cardio good for the heart (good for the heart)
I figure we can work it out, hmm

Painted a picture
I thought I drew you well
I had a vision of seeing what isn't there
Caught in the moment
Tangled up in your sheets
When you broke my heart
Said you only wanted half of me

My imagination's too creative
They see Cain and I see Abel, Abel, Abel (Abel, Abel, Abel)
I know you're able, willing and able

Falling, falling
But I thought that you would need me
Falling, falling
Needed something to believe in, oh
I thought that you were the one
But it was all in my head
It was all in my head (skrt, skrt)

Yeah, look at you, boy, I invented you
Your Gucci tennis shoes running from your issues
Cardio good for the heart (good for the heart)
I figure we can work it out, hmm

Wanted you to grow, but, boy, you wasn't budding
Everything you are made you everything you aren't
I saw your potential without seeing credentials
Maybe that's the issue (yeah, yeah)
Said maybe that's the issue, ah
Can't hold that shit against you, ah
Guess I did it to myself, yeah
Thought you were somebody else, you

Thought you were somebody else, you (you)
Thought you were somebody else, you
