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 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 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?
High
Why'd you only call me when you're high?

Somewhere darker
Talkin' the same shite
I need a partner (high)
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 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) high?
Why'd you only call me when you're high?

And I can't see you here, wonder where I might
It sort of feels like I'm runnin' out of time
I haven't found what I was hopin' 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)?

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus]
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?"
"High, why'd you only call me when you're high?"

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
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)
"High, why'd you only call me when you're high?"

[Bridge]
And I can't see you here, wonder where I might
It sort of feels like I'm running out of time
I haven't found all I was hoping to find
You said you got to 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?"

[Outro]
"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 song 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 responsible 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 began viewing her as a sort of little sister.

People started to refer as her as "my cuter version" and 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 but 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.

he 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

"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
