Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?
Arctic Monkeys Lyrics


The mirror's image
Tells me it's home time
But I'm not finished
'Cause you're not by my side

And as I arrived I thought I saw you leaving
Carrying your shoes
Decided that once again I was just dreaming
Of bumping into you

Now it's three in the morning
And I'm tryna change your mind
Left you multiple missed calls
And to my message you reply
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"
"Hi, Why'd you only call me when you're high?"

Somewhere darker
Talking the same shite
I need a partner
Well are you out tonight?

It's harder and harder to get you to listen
More I get through the gears
Incapable of making alright decisions
And having bad ideas

Now it's three in the morning
And I'm tryna change your mind
Left you multiple missed calls
And to my message you reply (message you reply)
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"
(Why'd you only call me when you're)
"Hi, why'd you only call me when you're high?"

And I can't see you here, wonderin' where am I
Sort of feels like I'm runnin' out of time
I haven't found all I was hoping to find
You said you gotta be up in the morning
Gonna have an early night
And you're starting to bore me, baby
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"

"Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?"
"Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?"

"Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?"
"Why'd you only ever phone me when you're (high)?"

This songs actually reminds me of this girl I used to know.

She was a new transfer student who fortunately for her, was able to blend in my group of friends relatively soon.
(A rare thing for a newcomer).

Because of my responsable and so called "big bro" attitude I was put in charge of protecting her since, maybe in an attempt to better gain recognition, she was always doing some crazy childish stuff.

Maybe because of the fact we were always that close, I started viewing her as a sort of little sister.

People started to call her as "my cuter version", she seemed to love it to the point of trying to emulate me, even in the bad things.

I remember that in order to stop her from buying cigarettes, fearing she would become a real smoker (the same mistake I made back in the day), I used to give her some of mine every time we were out.

Then a night, around 3:00 AM in a club, I began searching for her in order to bring her back home, she answered the phone totally drunk while singing this song: "why you always call me when you are high?"
I was a bit surprised but really I was worried of her drunken state. "I'm not high, where are you?" I said, then she replied sighing: "but I am, that's why you talking to me, why can't you see me for something different from a child you are babysitting?"
I figured that the alcohol was speaking and rushed to her location.

I found her crying on a bench outside the disco, she initially started to throw me some bottles of booze she had beside her, after blocking her hands she suddenly stopped resisting and hugged me.

She confessed that she was in love and that my big bro attitude was making her suffer.
I stayed on that bench with her at -12 celsius until dawn.

In the end we didn't start a relationship, I wasn't in love with her and to start dating without a real feeling was not my type of thing.

After that things between us became awkward and by the end of the following year we ended up losing any contact.

I still treasure her as my "cute crazy little sister".

Hope she is well.

The mirror's image, it tells me it's home time
But I'm not finished, 'cause you're not by my side
And as I arrived I thought I saw you leavin', carryin' your shoes
Decided that once again I was just dreamin' of bumpin' into you
Now it's three in the mornin' and I'm tryin' to change your mind
Left you multiple missed calls and to my message, you reply
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"
"Hi, why'd you only call me when you're high?"
Somewhere darker, talkin' the same shite
I need a partner, well, are you out tonight?
It's harder and harder to get you to listen
More I get through the gears
Incapable of makin' alright decisions, and havin' bad ideas
Now it's three in the mornin' and I'm tryin' to change your mind
Left you multiple missed calls and to my message you reply
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"
"Hi, why'd you only call me when you're high?"
And I can't see you here, wonderin' where am I
It sort of feels like I'm runnin' out of time
I haven't found all I was hopin' to find
You said you gotta be up in the mornin'
Gonna have an early night
And you're startin' to bore me, baby
Why'd you only call me when you're high?
"Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?"
"Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?"
"Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?"
"Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?"

@irenickth yeah we have to stay prositive but i am blessed that i have firends that kinda force me to be friends, cause w/o them i would end up complete alone cause i am so socially awkward. But i hope i will finally change and be normal because i cant handle it anymore

irenickth

@Willy_195 I'm having a lotta trouble tryna talk to people irl and in texting it just end up so messed up so I feel you, I'm unable to make new friendships without half of them leaving bc they got bored of me, I'm starting to prefer being lonely tbh it's not even that hard, But hey I think someday we might meet someone who would understand us better so lets try to be positive :/
