"Creep" is a song originally by Radiohead that Melanie Martinez covered live and on her YouTube channel in 2013. The video was later taken down.

Theme

Creep tells the story of an inebriated man who follows a woman around in an attempt to gain her attention since he is attracted to her. He lacks the self-confidence to face her in the end, and he believes that somehow, he subconsciously is her.

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 very special

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

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

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

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

She's running out the door
She's running out
She run, run, run, run
Run

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

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