Uninvited Lyrics

on Amazon Music

Like anyone would be
I am flattered by your fascination with me
Like any hot-blooded woman
I have simply wanted an object to crave
But you, you're not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight

Must be strangely exciting
To...

    The song is about being sexually assaulted, or date raped. I'm old enough to remember her explaining the lyrics behind the song on MTV.

    It's about a girl who is having thoughts about someone that she feels uninvited inside her mind.
    Listen carefully to the lyrics.

    For the recent post, why not ask all your female friends who you know and knows you that you feel they are deliberating you, who knows it's only you who feels that way and they don't even deliberate you. Nowadays, people really deliberate when it comes to people. You have to be blunt, frank and honest. This way you will know if they are deliberating you or not. Don't worry too much. Deliberate about all your female friends? Purpose? You will have a headache if you deliberate all them! May you have peace of mind!

    Reading but not interpreting ( Not here all the time)

    Maybe I'm totally off base, but I relate this song to all the females that know me or know of me that use me for deliberation in one form or another. Help! This isn't funny. Lately, all I ever do is deliberate. I've done it so much, I wonder if this is my purpose.

    OMG, you're all wrong!

    "Uninvited" was written for the movie "City of Angels" and is a direct response to Seth the Angel (Nicolas Cage) trying to get close to Maggie the Human (Meg Ryan).

    He's an *Angel*. He's *Uninvited*. Yes, it's an *Unfortunate Slight*...

    For those of you who haven't seen the movie, I won't give away the ending. You're welcome...

    Total internal dialogue. Intrusive thought are uninvited, often countering pleasant thoughts or feelings. She really is a brilliant songwriter. Ghost write some stuff or something, I know there are some great songs rattling around in that head. @ten7golf

    There was a period of time during the Jagged Little Pill era where I don't think I laughed for about two years. It was a survival mode, you know. It was an intense, constant, chronic over-stimulation and invasion of energetic and physical literal space. People would break into my hotel room or reach into the car and pull my hair. - Alan is Morrissette interview quote. Univited in my opinion is about this.

    She is speaking to THE WORLD. The facination of her fans. She (a genius), unlike many popular stars has decided to keep us at arms length ... an action of emotional survival. That's why she says it is an unfornate slight ... (slight means to "snub" someone). She fights with herself on this subject as her song portrays. She needs a moment to liberate. So just leave her be and don't smother her with attention...it os taxing on her soul.

    Inappropriate intimate relationship that she enjoyed and felt guilty for allowing herself to enjoy; her internal emotions were "uninvited"; no need to "deliberate" unless she is in control of matter

    The song to me seems to be spoken on behalf of Satan to someone who is falling just short of heaven

    Watch the video for Red Sun Rising cover. They clearly thought the lyrics were about a stalker going from admirer to danger. Btw best cover in 20 years!

    The song is about an affair between a young girl and older man. It is known that Alanis was involved with an older man when she was a minor, and I believe it lasted for quite a while. The song is about her struggle with knowing it is wrong, but liking the attention. It is also about how exciting it must be for him. She is repeatedly saying the whole situation is wrong. At the end she is debating whether this is worth it ("I need a moment to deliberate"). When the music comes crashing back, she has decided that she will continue with the affair.
