Nobody Really Cares if You Don't Go to the Party

Album: Sometimes I Just Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Barnett explained the song's meaning to Nothing But Hope and Passion: "Everyone goes through kind of a fear of missing out if you don't go to something – the fear that you're not involved," she said. "I am more one of the making-an-excuse-to-not-go-out person. Sometimes, the next day I actually have the feeling I missed something, but whatever. I like my own time. I like house parties – a couple of good friends, dinner and board games. Maybe getting drunk as well. That's fun. I don't like meeting lots of people that I don't know, it makes me nervous."
