Crawlin' back to you
Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?
Cause I always do

from Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Although the girl has kept secrets from him and caused him depression, Alex still crawls back to this girl. We learn this is typical of Alex.

“You’ve had a few” is British slang for being drunk (i.e. a few drinks). Turner has an unfortunate habit of calling the girl when he’s drunk.

The aforementioned habit crops up later in the album, giving it a nice symmetry, in Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?. Except he’s on something a little stronger than booze. And yet this need to contact the one he lusts after permeates into his high.
