3 Thoughts and Song Meanings
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.
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
