Ariana Grande – in my head Lyrics

in my head Lyrics by Ariana Grande


[Doug Middlebrook:]
Here’s the thing: you’re in love with a version of a person that you’ve created in your head, but you are prying 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.

[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
Well, you broke my heart; I said you only wanted half of me

[Ariana Grande:]
My imagination’s too creative
They see demon, I see angel, angel, angel
We’re lovin’ halo, wingless angel

[Ariana Grande:]
Falling, falling, but I never thought you’d leave 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)

[Ariana Grande:]
Yeah, look at you, boy, I invented you
Your Gucci tennis shoes runnin’ from your issues
Gotta hook-up from the high (From the high, from the high)
I figure we can work it out, hmm

[Ariana Grande:]
Painted a picture; I thought I drew you well
I got a vision of seeing what isn’t there
Caught in the moment, tangled up in your sheets
Well, you broke my heart; said you only wanted half of me

[Ariana Grande:]
My imagination’s too creative
They see Cain and I see Abel, Abel, Abel
I know you’re able, pullin’ an Abel

[Ariana Grande:]
Falling, falling, but I never thought you’d leave 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)

[Ariana Grande:]
Yeah, look at you, boy, I invented you
Your Gucci tennis shoes runnin’ from your issues
Gotta hook-up from the high (From the high, from the high)
I figure we can work it out, hmm

[Ariana Grande:]
Runnin’ through the grover
Boy, your eye’s invitin’
Everything you want me do everything you aren’t
I saw your potential without seein’ credentials (-Entials)
Maybe that’s the issue (Yeah, yeah)
Said maybe that’s the issue, ah
Can’t hold that s--- against you, ah
If I did it, don’t accept it
Found you with somebody else, you

[Ariana Grande:]
Found you with somebody else, you (You)
Found you with somebody else, you

Who Is Ariana Grande Referencing in her song “In My Head” Lyrics

My imagination’s too creative / They see demon, I see angel, angel, angel / Without a halo, wingless angel

Grande consistently called Miller an angel in her music and on her social media. On Instagram, she talked about the disparity between the angelic man she saw and the demons he fought with his drug addiction. “I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will,” she wrote. “The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. I hope you’re okay now.”

Falling, falling, but I never thought you’d leave me / Falling, falling, needed something to believe in, oh

Grande may be touching again on a point she’s previously made on social media: She couldn’t imagine losing Miller when he was so young. As she wrote on Instagram, “I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it.”

Your Gucci tennis shoes runnin’ from your issues / Cardio good for the heart (For the heart, for the heart) / I figure we can work it out, hmm

In her May Twitter post after their breakup, Grande wrote about how hard she tried to support Miller. “I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course),” she wrote. Their relationship ended because she ultimately needed to care for herself too. “Of course I didn’t share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was,” she wrote. “I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out and that any other woman in this position does as well.”

Wanted you to grow, but, boy, you wasn’t budding / Everything you are made you everything you aren’t

Grande may be referring here to her desire to see Miller fully stick to sobriety and how his musical talent (“everything you are”) led to fame and the spotlight, which came at the expense of his health. In her Instagram tribute after his death, Grande wrote about how hard she tried to help him heal. “We talked about this. So many times,” she said. “I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do….Above anything else. I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to.”
