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

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The mirror's image
It tells me it's home time
But I'm not finished
'Cause you're not by my side
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
Now it's three in the morning
And I'm trying 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?
High
Why'd you only call me when you're high?
Verse 4
Somewhere darker
Talking the same shite
I need a partner
Well are you out tonight?
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
Now it's three in the morning
And I'm trying to 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?
Verse 7
And I can't see you here when I'm high
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 starting to bore me, baby
Why'd you only call me when you're high?
Verse 8
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?
Verse 9
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?
