He described it as "about a guy who was crying out because he thought he was too advanced, and that he'd eventually have to leave people behind. One day I will be". The song is an early work of psychedelic rock. The song was written by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher. While it is commonly understood that Wilson composed the majority of the music on Pet Soundsit has been claimed in Steven Gaines ' book Heroes and Villains that "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times" was one of three songs in which Asher contributed musical ideas rather than acting solely as a co-lyricist; the other two being " Caroline, No " and " That's Not Me ".
On the song's meaning, Wilson stated "It's about a guy who was crying out because he thought he was too advanced, and that he'd eventually have to leave people behind. All my friends thought I was crazy to do Pet Sounds.
But this one I didn't relate to. It was more trying to interpret what he was feeling than having this joint feeling in our various ways.
Guercio's interpretation: "The lyrics are a first-person chronicle of disillusionment from a narrator who, despite being intelligent, can't find a place where he can comfortably feel like a part of the world. The music brings the despair of the lyrics to life with a melody that is lovely and pained all at once: The verses rise and fall in a way that accentuates the yearning tone I Just Wasnt Made For These Times - The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds the lyrics, and the chorus rapidly accelerates to soaring melodic heights before crashing back down to perfectly capture the song's churning emotions.
Wilson's pained lead vocal is contrasted with layers of anguished harmonies on the chorus. Its instrumentation is similarly powerful, weaving harpsichord and theremin into a spooky orchestral tapestry, and powerful drumming wrings the maximum dramatic punch from each chorus. Like other songs on Pet Soundsthere is no drum kit until the chorus. One day I will be"  while Wilson leads with the lyric " sometimes I feel very sad ". Each musical bar that follows within the chorus introduces a new contrapuntal melody, where Wilson further adds " ain't found the right thing I can put my heart and soul into " and " people I know don't wanna be where I'm at ".
Granata concludes: "The protagonist is desperate to define himself, but is depressed and struggling. Ultimately, the answer to the question—'Where do I fit in? Desiring electronically produced sounds for the recording of Pet SoundsWilson contacted Paul Tanner to play as a session musician with the mistaken assumption that he was using a theremin for the song's recording. Tanner recalls the sessions being unusual for what he had been familiar to; Wilson forewent notation and instead sung Tanner's part for him to play.
