Creeper

from Lost Angeles by Richard Turgeon

about

This song is not about creeping, or being creepy. It's about a relationship that you know is doomed from the start, but you dive in anyway.

lyrics

When girls like me meet boys like you, those sparks can fly (she said)
I guessed from our first kiss I’d catch you in a lie
I fooled myself that you were different from the rest
You’ve got me hooked and now you’ve put me to the test

What started out so well will end in broken hearts
That love you felt for me was broken from the start

I’ll let you down
Cause I’m a creeper

I circle you, you circle me as we close in
The one who makes the first move often gets to win
I parry, you thrust and we both bleed from the side
You’ll run away from me with nowhere left to hide

What started out so well will end in broken hearts
That love you felt for me was broken from the start
I never thought that we could end in so much pain
We’ll limp away with wounds and never be the same

I wish there’d been another way
Why wake up cursing one more day
My patience wears a thin disguise
I’m never one for long goodbyes…
‘Cause I’m a creeper

I’ll let you down
Don’t ask me how
‘Cause I’m a creeper
