This is the perfect song for the introverts” – Jiggy

Introvert - Many people these days are starting to throw around this word, but what does this mean and how does it relate to people in an everyday situation. The simple definition of introvert generally means: a shy person; or a quiet person who does not find it easy to talk to other people. We seem to think differently. Jiggy explains in this song analysis what he thinks is a perfect song for introverts.


Most people are not comfortable with their own thoughts, which is why they try to escape them by going out and having a good time partying. Society expects us to have relationships with other people and when we find our selves alone, society automatically considers it abnormal. They don’t understand that some of the best thinking is done when a person is alone with him or herself. In a world that can’t stop talking, it will be great for our tortured mind to be alone with itself more often.

I guess right now you've got the last laugh.

I'm sorry if I seem uninterested
Or I'm not listenin' or I'm indifferent
Truly, I ain't got no business here
But since my friends are here
I just came to kick it but really
I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room
With people who don't even care about my well being
I don't dance, don't ask, I don't need a boyfriend
So you can go back, please enjoy your party
I'll be here, somewhere in the corner under clouds of marijuana
With this boy who's hollering I can hardly hear
Over this music I don't listen to and I don't wanna get with you
So tell my friends that I'll be over here

The public generally links being an introvert with being anti-social, or being aloof or even indifferent to society. But, just take a page out of your history book and you will find some of the biggest contributors to society’s improvement are introverts. People like Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Mahatma Gandhi are just a few of the introverts that have changed the world. Imagine if we did not give these people time alone, things would have been so much different.

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here1

Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this
An anti social pessimist but usually I don't mess with this
And I know you mean only the best and
Your intentions aren't to bother me
But honestly I'd rather be
Somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen
To some music with the message (like we usually do)
And we'll discuss our big dreams
How we plan to take over the planet
So pardon my manners, I hope you'll understand
That I'll be here
Not there in the kitchen with the girl
Who's always gossiping about her friends
So tell them I'll be here
Right next to the boy who's throwing up 'cause
He can't take what's in his cup no more
Oh God why am I here?

I love this line “ Oh God why am I Here?” Existential questions only come when you are alone with your thoughts. I think everyone should ask this question or if they already have answer to revisit it every once in a while.
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

Hours later congregating next to the refrigerator
Some girl's talking 'bout her haters
She ain't got none
How did it ever come to this
I shoulda never come to this
So holla at me I'll be in the car when you're done
I'm standoffish, don't want what you're offering
And I'm done talking
Awfully sad it had to be that way
So tell my people when they're ready that I'm ready
And I'm standing by the TV with my beanie low
Yo I'll be over here1

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

The next time you see somebody all alone, just let them be. They might be thinking about the next big idea that will change your world.
