  • "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 (skrrt, skrrt)

    Yeah, look at you (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
    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
    Hmm, thought that you were the one
    But it was all in my head
    It was all in my head (skrrt, skrrt)

    Yeah, look at you (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 (you)

    Thought you were somebody else, you (you)
    Thought you were somebody else, you (you) Writer/s: Andrew Wansel, Ariana Grande, Brittany Coney, Denisia Andrews, Jameel Roberts, Lindel Deon Nelson Jr., Nathan Perez
