Just Add Water Lyrics

Please don't invite me, please don't invite me
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
And don't remind me, please don't remind me
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know
Leave without me because I don't wanna go
Just add water and let me...

    I think the song is about a person that gets left out from everything because their 'friends' didn't invite them to anything. Eventually one day the person finds all their 'friends' leaving for a party without them and is heartbroken so they "Sleep until it's over" which means that they will pretend to be asleep until their friends get back. The person begins to think that they get left behind because they did something wrong and they're disgusting.

    When youre declining invitations (to parties etc.), because youre introverted, people dont understand you, they are slowly losing interests in you and theyre not inviting you anymore. Because of that you start thinking that youre bad person and it would be better for others if they just left you.

    I think it might be a song about him being introverted and seeing the people he loves move on and have fun without him. It sounds as though near the end he's ushering someone to move on from him, or he himself is trying to move on from someone.

    (TW, mentions of suicide)
    I think it’s about someone who is always outside of the circle, and one day decides to leave(suicide?) not sure, but something like that

    A song about introversion and not wanting to go out or not being invited. Feeling sad about seeing your friends have fun without you.
