"Creep/The Blower's Daughter" as written by and Damien George Rice....
And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The blower's daughter
The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind
My mind, my mind
'Til I find somebody new

    General Commenti saw this live - it was amazing. yeah, the two songs are very similar. both the lyrics have the similar feeling of obsession too.

    General CommentThis song is about his instrument teachers daughter when he was a child. I dont remember what the instrument was, but it was one that you blow, something like a recorder. So yeah, basically she was pretty and he could'nt take his eyes off her. It was on his website.

    Its a gorgeous song.

    General CommentI think this song was excellant. The only time I can recall this song being played is on a Glastonbury CD. I always thought The Blowers Daughter's guitar chords sounded a bit like creep. Two great song, and this is a dream come true!
