Alessia Cara – Here

Alessia Cara Here lyrics

I guess for 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 hollerin'
And 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
Oh oh oh here, oh oh oh here
Oh oh oh I asked myself
what am I doin' here?
Oh oh oh here, oh oh oh here

And I can't wait 'til we can break up out of here
Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this
An antisocial 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 a 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 (Ooh)

Not there in the kitchen
With the girl who's always gossipin' about her friends
Oh tell them I'll be here
(Ooh) right next to the boy who's throwin' up
'Cause he can't take what's in his cup no more
Oh God why am I here?
Oh oh oh here, oh oh oh here
Oh oh oh I asked myself
what am I doin' here?

Oh oh oh here, oh oh oh here
And I can't wait 'til we can break up out of here
Hours later congregatin' next to the refrigerator
Some girl's talkin' 'bout a hater, she ain't got none
How did it ever come to this?
I should've never come to this
So holla at me, I'll be in the car when you're done
I'm stand-offish, don't want what you're offerin'
And I'm done talkin', awfully sad it had to be that way

So tell my people when they're ready that I'm ready
And I'm standin' by the TV with my beanie low
Yo I'll be over here
Oh oh oh here, oh oh oh here
Oh oh oh I asked myself, what am I doin' here?
Oh oh oh here, oh oh oh here
And I can't wait 'til we can break up out of here (Oh oh, oh oh)

Overview

“Here” by Alessia Cara is “for those who hate to party”, as Alessia Cara had said in both a Fader interview and on Jimmy Fallon's talk show. Dubbed as a song for the “socially awkward”, the lyrics clearly represent the singer’s hesitation to embrace the party atmosphere, instead finding it nerve wracking and bothersome.

The lyrics are clear from the start, with the lines “I’m sorry if I seem uninterested, or i’m not listening or I’m indifferent”, “Truly I ain't got no business here, but since my friends are here, I just came to kick it”. The lines clearly tell of her unwillingness to enjoy the party, and she only came to support/hang out with her friends that are the party.

Alessia Cara has dubbed herself “awkward and weird” many times in interviews, and it seems like this song may be an actual opinion by the singer herself. During the song she declares “she doesn't need a boyfriend”, when she is approached by a boy who is looking to dance. The song's chorus also makes for a good ringtone, with the lines “oh I asked myself what am I doin here, and I can’t wait till we break up out of here”, which cements the overall tone of the entire song.

The best part for a ringtone to “Here” by Alessia Cara is best sourced between 0:56 and 1:26 minute.
