Loner
Kali Uchis Lyrics


I don't want to be your cigarette
I don't want to be your ashtray
I don't want to be your door mat
Don't want to be ignored
All o' sudden you're not into me
And maybe it's not deliberate
And I know you never asked me
I just gotta put it out there
I don't put myself out there
Usually I stay tucked away
'Cause I was a loner until I met you
And I let you in after all the persuasion
Mind games, manipulations

That's why I'd rather be a loner
Yeah I'd rather be alone
I don't even want to know ya
I don't want to be known
'Cause I'd rather be a loner
I'd much rather be alone
Baby it was nice to know ya
Packing up and leaving home

No I don't want to be your cigarette
Use me up then toss me, step on me
I don't want to be an option
Avoidin' interaction 'cause
I just want to get away
And maybe you got a full plate
Know I'm cookin' something better
But if you don't want me now
No boy I don't want you later
Don't try to come and eat with me
'Cause I was a loner until I met you
And I let you in after all the persuasion
Headaches and allegations

That's why I'd rather be a loner
Yeah I'd rather be alone
I don't even want to know ya
I don't want to be known
'Cause I'd rather be a loner
I'd much rather be alone
Baby it was nice to know ya
Packing up and leaving home

I don't want to be your cigarette
I don't want to be your ashtray
I don't want to be your door mat
Don't want to be ignored
All o' sudden you're not into me
And maybe it's not deliberate
And I know you never asked me
I just gotta put it out there
I don't put myself out there
Usually I stay tucked away
Cause I was a loner until I met you
And I let you in after all the persuasion
Mind games, manipulations

No I don't want to be your cigarette
Use me up then toss me, step on me
I don't want to be an option
Avoidin' interaction cause
I just want to get away
And maybe you got a full plate
Know I'm cookin' something better
But if you don't want me now
No boy I don't want you later
Don't try to come and eat with me

Headaches and allegations

It's a sad story about a person who used to be so open and vulnerable , but then after being hurt so may times theyve isolated themselves. It's kinda sad to think that some introverts are introverts because of pain. But also it's kinda beautiful and freeing

Literally story of my life. Life made me an introvert. I’m a damaged person so I rather be a loner

Same story of my life!
BUT i truly know there are people that is scared of feeling hurt again too and that we can be together...
