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 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

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

I'll be there in the corner, thinking right over

It's a heavenly to hear a song that sounds like it was written for the times you were going through hell.

Ayur Lopsonov your comment gave me chills just now.
I love wild, colorful imagination. You just gave a lovely scenario that my mind just translated into a live motion scene. Thanks
