Creep Lyrics

When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fuckin' special

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts
I wanna have control
I wanna a perfect body
I wanna a perfect soul

I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

She's running out again
She's running out
She's run run run run

Run

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here

3 Thoughts & Meanings

I'm fairly sure everyone knows what this song is about i'd however like to tell my personal experience with this song. So first day of the new schoolyear this girl catches my eye and she is literally the prettiest girl i've had the delight to ever lay eyes on. But she always was with this guy and i thought they were dating i later found out they weren't. Eventually i had chemistry with her which i wasn't aware of. I sat next to her in the back of the class by this point i already knew she was in fact dating some other guy i was kinda sad at this point since my thoughts were already taking off and i just imagined me and her holding eachother and being in love. So i sit next to her normally im pretty confident but i just couldn't bring out a word since she is so beautiful i knew about the song creep and that it pretty much fitted perfectly for this situation cause why would she ever want to talk too me right. After class was over i rode my bike home with my headphones on listening to creep and for the first time in my life i teared up over a girl while she doesn't even know my name i have been in relationships but such sublime looks it just struck me so hard. I don't know why i went crazy over her i still see her occasionally at school i pretty much gave up at this point but when you really see that angel that radiohead is describing it is mesmerizing and an insane feeling. Creep tells this tale perfectly

It's a simple and yet poignant, crushing way of stating that a person would do ANYTHING to fit in. The best thing is that it applies to any time in history and any age. I mean, we try to fit in all the time, not only as teenagers but later on we try and fit in at a job, with a partner, with family. There's this fear of being alone that drags us to do sacrifices for other people more than us and we would probably do it over and over again.

This song is about the feeling of alienation, of being rejected...paradoxically, it has become the song of an entire generation because everyone has felt lonely, different, unwanted. It is also about wanting to be good enough for someone, about feeling inferior to someone that might not even deserve or understand the love they receive. And while the singer desperately wishes to be special, he actually proves he is different in a positive way. He doesn't even realize it, maybe not even the audiences do - but in the end, 'Creep' makes us feel good about being who we are, different from anybody else.
