‘ Creep’ By: Radiohead Song Analysis and Favorite Versions!

I don’t actually have that much to say about the lyrics themselves because it is really obvious but just reading them what they mean and that they are deep and powerful lyrics and hearing them sung so many different ways really conveys that message further.  I suggest you do as I have done and just listen to a ton of different versions. I have shared my favorites below and a little bit about why I like each of them but feel free to share links to some others in the comments or comment on which out of the ones I shared you liked and why and/or any other thoughts on one of my favorite songs ever.

“Creep”

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,
[Album version:] You’re so fucking special.
[Clean version:] You’re so very special.

[Chorus:]
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 want to have control,
I want a perfect body,

I want a perfect soul,
I want you to notice,
When I’m not around,
[Album version:] You’re so fucking special,
[Clean version:] You’re so very special,
I wish I was special.

[Chorus:]
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo,
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.

Oh, oh

She’s running out again,
She’s running out…
She runs runs runs runs…
Run…

Whatever makes you happy,
Whatever you want,
[Album version:] You’re so fucking special,
[Clean version:] You’re so very 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.
