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