  • She's creeping
    Into my bloodstream
    Then crawling
    Out into [?]
    Then it sinks in
    I'm not where I'm supposed to be
    It's so boring
    Being what you want me to be

    So stop listening
    Just waiting for an answer to a question that I already know
    I'll let you down
    It's such a shame
    Maybe I am feeling like I'm alright living in the shadow
    You're not around

    So don't miss one
    Makes you so miserable
    When my message sent
    God knows I'll send it again

    So stop listening
    Just waiting for an answer to a question that I already know
    I'll let you down
    It's such a shame
    Maybe I am feeling like I'm alright living in the shadow
    You're not around
    You're not around

    So stop listening
    Just waiting for an answer to a question that I already know
    I'll let you down
    It's such a shame
    Maybe I am feeling like I'm alright living in the shadow
    You're not around

    She's creeping (ooh)
    Into my bloodstream (ooh)
    Now she's creeping (ooh)
    Into my bloodstream
    She's creeping
    You're not around Writer/s: BEN THATCHER, MICHAEL JAMES KERR

  • Izzy from Liverpool, EnglandI don't think it's meant to be in any way related to this, but this song always low key makes me think of The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, the whole idea of a woman creeping, a man not really listening to her, 'being what you want me to be'
