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 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 fuckin' 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, ohhhh, ohhhh

She's running out again,
She's running,
She runs runs runs runs...
Runs...

Whatever makes you happy,
Whatever you want,
You're so fucking 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...

    A good point of view for someone that has been rejected, and how we sometimes feel silly (like a creep, or weirdo) for the way that we feel about someone.

    I love this tune!

    The song explains two levels of self esteem. The guy who is singing the song is the one who feels he does not belong here because he feels he is not near in the class of the girl he loves in his heart. On the other hand the song if you listen to the lyrics is about a girl who the singer paints the picture of her so you can almost see her when he is singing the song. She is just like an angel her skin makes him cry. She floats like a feather in a beautiful world she is so FUCKIN Special in his eyes. Now he is the creep with the low self esteem wishing he had the perfect body and the perfect soul like the angel he adores so much but he is a WEIRDO so she Runs Runs Runs Runs Runs away from here. The End

    He cant show her how he feels, cuz he doesnt feel he is worthy enough.
    He wants to be wanted but feels that he cant have her.
    At the end of everything, he wants this person to be happy more than anything else.

    Describes how a lot of people feel about someone they want to be with.

    I don't know how you guys got your ideas, but it's obviously about how Nico Di Angelo feels towards Percy Jackson. Can't you see? Nico idolizes Percy because he saved Nico's life when he and his sister were young. He is having trouble because he should hate Percy for letting his sister go on a dangerous mission and die, but somehow he can't stop loving him. He also feels like a creep for being gay, and being obsessed with Percy. He see's Percy as being perfect, and himself as being a creep, and a burden on the world. It doesn't help that Percy is so oblivious either. It's pretty sad actually.
