The right music truly digs deep down into our core. Most introverts feel completely free when united with music. As an introvert myself, I am really hooked on mellow and sad music that probably sounds depressing to some people. Dwelling on the complexities of life’s experiences and personal relationships can become exhausting, and sometimes good music can be our only remedy.
So here are the songs for the quiet, loner, sensitive people. This one is for us, the introverts.
“I’m the ghost of a girl that I want to be most.
I’m the shell of a girl that I used to know well.”
During her interviews in Teenvogue, Christina explained the song’s meaning: “‘The Lonely’ is about my love affair with loneliness. The saddest, quietest, most painful kind. It’s lonely personified. It’s my relationship with no one, and I’m very happy I kept it super dramatic and simple at the same time. It’s me, a piano, plus a nineteen-piece orchestra.”
“I like being by myself
Don’t gotta entertain anybody else
No one to answer to….”
This one is definitely for the introverts who are waiting to meet their soulmate. “Dear No One” is a love song written about the guy of her dreams she has yet to meet. Sounds relatable, right? The song has a nice little story line that’s saying ‘you don’t always need somebody’ which is so true for introverts like us.
“Never thought that I would end up all alone,
Every day I’m feeling further away from home”
There’s a line in the song that says “You can say goodbye only to find you’ve been alone right from the start. So what am I fighting for?” that’s make all the outcasts and loners relate to this it.
“But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo, What the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here.”
This is a really dark song – very dark indeed. To me, it seems the song is quite simple to read out. It’s someone dealing with unrequited love, either through rejection or just not noticing they exist. This song beautifully illustrates someone’s frustration and melancholy.
“Crowded hallways are the loneliest places
For outcasts and rebels Or anyone who just dares to be different”
“Invisible” tells us that it’s okay to be quiet, it’s okay to be different and it’s okay not to fit in. This song has a chorus that begins, “Trust the one who’s been where you are, wishing all it was sticks and stones/Those words cut deep but they don’t mean you’re all alone.” Hunter wants every bullied kid and those who felt left out to know that no matter how difficult things may get, you just have to push through it because you’ll look back on it one day and it’ll be invisible.
“I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room With people who don’t even care about my well-being”
Have you ever wanted to leave a party and just be at home all by yourself? If yes, then Alessia Cara wrote the perfect song for you.
“I’m perfectly lonely, Yeah
Cause I don’t belong to anyone
And nobody belongs to me”
“Perfectly Lonely” celebrates being single and has such an unusual independent attitude. John is very truthful about every aspect of this song, qualities that makes him a perfect songwriter. He knows that some day he’ll settle down, and when that comes he’ll be grateful of all the mistakes that led him there.
8. Boulevard Of Broken Dreams – Green Day
“Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone”
The lyrics of this song make it seem like he’s been on this road for so long that he’s gotten used to but sometimes he wishes someone would find him and save him from his loneliness. This one is for every Green Day fans out there.
“There’s nothing but the rain, No footsteps on the ground. I’m listening but there’s no sound”
Avril knows the feeling of loneliness and in the song, she tells you how she felt when she went through it. You might feel like you’re all alone and scared, trying to find yourself and figure everything out, but you just can’t. You wish someone out there would help you, but no one does, until one day one person picks you up and helps you from up from the ground. This song is so emotional and has struck the hearts of many.
“I know that there are millions
I can’t be the only one who’s so disconnected”
We’ve all probably felt like the narrator in this 2011 Simple Plan song. Feeling isolated, unheard, and as disconnected from others as a satellite in outer space.
