Why Am I Like This?
Orla Gartland Lyrics


Last night I smoked a cigarette
My dad would have been so upset
Then we got tattoos by the coast
And I just stood there like a ghost

Maybe I'm an old soul trapped in a young body
Maybe you don't really want me there at your birthday party
I'll be there in the corner thinking right over
Every single word of the conversation we just had

So, why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?

I saw a girl crying on the train
Gin and tonic from a can to ease the pain
And I never asked if she was okay
She just got up and walked away

Oh, it's like I'm looking down from the ceiling above
Never in the moment, never giving enough
Let's go out and shout the words we never said
I've got my mistakes on loop inside my head, inside my head

So, why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I

Why am I like this?

(Maybe I'm an old soul trapped in a young body)
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? (maybe you don't really want me there)
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? (Maybe I'm an old soul trapped in a young body)
Why am I

Why am I like this?
Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? (maybe you don't really want me there)
Why am I

Why am I like this?

Maybe I'm an old soul trapped in a young body
Maybe you don't really want me there at your birthday party
I'll be there in the corner thinking right over
Every single word of the conversation we just had

Last night I smoked a cigarette
My dad would have been so upset
Then we got tattoos by the coast
And I just stood there just like a ghost


Maybe I'm an old soul trapped in a young body
Maybe you don’t really want me there at your birthday party
I'll be there in the corner, thinking right over
Every single word of the conversation we just had



So why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this?


I saw a girl crying on the train
Gin and tonic from a can to ease the pain
And I never asked if she was okay
She just got up and walked away


Oh-oh, it's like I’m looking down from the ceiling above
Never in the moment, never giving enough
Let's go out and shout the words we never said
I got my mistakes on a loop inside my head
Inside my head


So why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
Why am I like this?
(Maybe I'm an old soul trapped in a young body)
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
(Maybe you don't really want me there)
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
(Maybe I'm an old soul trapped in a young body)
Why am I like this? Why am I like this?
Why am I like this? Why am I?
(Maybe you don't really want me there)
Why am I like this?


Maybe I'm an old soul trapped in a young body
Maybe you don't really want me there at your birthday party
I’ll be there in the corner, thinking right over
Every single word of the conversation we just had

This song came at such a perfect time in my life when I was in high school. Confusion, heart break, loneliness... Dunno why it's being uploaded now, but it was a good moment of bittersweet nostalgia

Alana Munson

I'm in middle school and I listen to it everyday

Emily Kim

@amedilen gottcha! thank you for letting me know

amedilen

the song was used in the netflix show Heartstopper!! this upload is probably for folks discovering it after watching :’)

josh B

It’s the exact same for me. I’m glad tho.

Parker

so weird hearing this after it being in HEARTSTOPPER versus hearing it for the first time when you first uploaded it. crazy how much can happen in that much time!!!

I'll never forget the days I used to cry to this song on high school. I would love to talk to that version of me, to tell her that we'll be fine and she shouldn't worry. She's not straight, she's not neurotypical, but that's okay. She'll be fine and we'll remember this song with SO much love.

Rue's Musical Corner

Confused but this song never gets old :)

this song is like therapy. I could be crying and this song would immediately make me feel 10x better. Love your music <333
