Melanie Martinez – Pity Party lyrics

[Verse 1]
Did my invitations disappear
Why'd I put my heart on every cursive letter?
Tell me why the hell no one is here
Tell me what to do to make it all feel better


[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe it's a cruel joke on me
Whatever, whatever
Just means there's way more cake for me
Forever, forever


[Chorus](x2)
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry)
I'll cry until the candles burn down this place
I'll cry until my pity party's in flames


[Verse 2]
Maybe if I knew all of them well
I wouldn't have been trapped inside this hell that holds me
Maybe if I casted out a spell
But told them decorations were in pastel ribbons


[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I'm laughing, I'm crying
It feels like I'm dying

I'm laughing, I'm crying
It feels like I'm dying
I'm laughing, I'm crying
It feels like I'm dying
I'm dying, I'm dying
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to

[Scream]

[Chorus](2x)

[Outro:]
It's my party, it's-it's my party
It's my party, it's-it's my party
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to (cry, cry, cry)

    I think this song us about breaking down because no one is there for you. That theres a huge point in your life where you need someone but they aren't there. You take everyone in and hope they'll be there when you need them but they just disappear.

    "Maybe if I knew all of them well
    I wouldn't have been trapped inside this hell that holds me
    Maybe if I casted out a spell
    But told them decorations were in pastel ribbons"

    I think this lyric is saying that maybe if I was closer with them they would of been there, and that maybe if i made my self more acceptable they would of been here.
    I usually think about things figuratively then I take them into real world situations that these lyrics could be talking about.
    At first she wonders why no one is here and that maybe they didn't get the invitation. Shes stalling herself with these ideas that maybe they have their own issues to deal with before they can help her. But then she realizes they won't come, they were never coming. She breaks down completely into a psychotic mental state because she gets mad that they aren't there when they are needed.

    This songs meaning is easy, she is sad that no one came to her birthday party so she has a massive breakdown which causes her to destroy her party and house, and so she loses her mind in anger, sadness, and makes her lose all her friends and family and her house to the fire she made.
