Sad song? maybe yes.
Creeper have shared with you a new calm song “Misery”, this is the final chapter in the “Eternity, In Your Arms” (debut album, out March 24, 2017) video trilogy.
Loosely categorised as a concept album by commentators, Eternity, in Your Arms is centred around the story of James Scythe, a fictional missing paranormal investigator. The story is inspired by characters in J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and is a continuation of a narrative started on the band’s second and third EPs, The Callous Heart and The Stranger. Prior to the album’s release, “Suzanne”, “Hiding with Boys” and “Black Rain” were issued as singles, with the latter two songs’ music videos serving as part of a trilogy completed by “Misery” which ties into the story of the album’s lyrics. – Wikipedia.

Song lyrics: Creeper – Misery
Pretty, but he don’t tell you about it.
Winter scarves and skirts of velvet.
We still drink just like we did in school.
I passed your old house down by the cemetery.
Club nights and university.
When your friends sing ‘Born To Run’ baby resist, because we were ‘Born To Drift’.
If you could see the wreck I am these days, you’d have new reasons to stay away.
Just hold my hand for a little while.
Misery never goes out of style.
I see you sometimes in dreams I have, in your bra in the room you used to rent.
Do you ever wish you could wake someone else?
So I wrote down a list of coroners, their names, their office phone numbers.
To pronounce dead the thing we had.
In tombs, ex-boyfriends bedrooms.
I’m your chipped nail paint. I’m the fabric of your coat.
You are all I fear. You are words I never wrote.
You are years ago.
