Clementine
[unknown] Lyrics


Clementine

In a cavern, in a canyon,
Excavating for a mine,
Dwelt a miner, forty-niner
And his daughter Clementine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling
Oh my darling, Clementine
Thou art lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorry, Clementine.

Light she was and like a fairy,
And her shoes were number nine,
Herring boxes without topses
Sandals were for Clementine

Chorus

Drove she ducklings to the water
Every morning just at nine,
Hit her foot against a splinter
Fell into the foaming brine.

Chorus

Ruby lips above the water,
Blowing bubbles soft and fine,
But alas, I was no swimmer,
So I lost my Clementine.

Chorus
Then the miner, forty-niner
Soon began to peak and pine,
Thought he oughter jine he daughter,
Now he's with his Clementine.

Chorus

In my dreams she still doth haunt me,
Robed in garments soaked in brine;
Though in life I used to hug her,
Now she's dead, I draw the line.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

A remarkable ballad developed in San Francisco toward the end of
The nineteeth century. It became a favorite college song during
The Reconstruction period.

Additional verses (Boy Scouts and others)Rg

In a churchyard, 'neath a gravestone
Where the myrtle doth entwine.
There are posies, and some roses
Fertilized by Clementine.

How I missed her, how I missed her
How I missed my Clementine!
Till I kissed her little sister
And forgot my Clementine.

All you Boy Scouts, take fair warning
From this dreadful tale of mine.
Artificial respiration
Would have saved my Clementine.

"I'd like to tell you that my sky's not blue, it's violent rain"
-- Hurricane ("I'm the violence in the pouring rain")


"And in my world, the people on the street don't know my name. / Because in my world, I'm seven feet tall"
-- Alone ("I spent a night out in Paris, where they don't know my name") and Young God ("We'll be flying through the streets with the people underneath")


"And the boys always call, and the girls do too"
-- Alone ("Said he tried to phone me, but I never have time") and Sorry ("I've missed your calls for months, it seems")


so many callbacks to her past songs in the first verse. definitely sounds like she is stripping down her halsey persona and letting the world start to see Ashley. She'd like to tell the world that Halsey is who she really is: this untouchable persona who doesn't need anyone. But she can't. People on the street DO know her name. She's NOT seven feet tall, towering above all the people who know her from her music. And she DOES need people, no matter how much she might want to scream that she doesn't. She can't keep Halsey and Ashley separate anymore; they're colliding, and this song is the sound of the collision.

Poetry pours from the mind
And eyes got wet
My subconscious is showering.
Oh, all my pain and dreams
The hope to see you again
Keeps me alive
I don't walk on my feet anymore
I fly with you.
The imagination of gazing in you
Makes my heart resonate with you
I will touch your breaths with my sleepy forehead,
And hold you in my arms once and forever.

I'd like to tell you that my sky's not blue, it's violent rain
And in my world, the people on the street don't know my name
In my world, I'm seven feet tall
And the boys always call, and the girls do too
Because in my world, I'm constantly, constantly havin' a breakthrough (hmm)
Or a breakdown, or a blackout
Would you make out with me underneath the shelter of the balcony?

'Cause I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone
I just need everyone and then some
I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone
I just need everyone and then some

Wish I could see what it's like to be the blood in my veins
Do the insides of all of my fingers still look the same?
And can you feel it too, when I am touchin' you?
And when my hair stands on ends, it's saluting you
The blush in your cheeks says that you bleed like me
And the 808 beat sends your heart to your feet
Left my shoes in the street so you'd carry me
Through a breakdown
Through a breakdown or a blackout
Would you make out with me on the floor of the mezzanine?

'Cause I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone
I just need everyone and then some
I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone
I just need everyone and then some

My face is full of spiderwebs, all tender yellow blue
And still with one eye open, well, all I see is you
I left my daydreams at the gate because I just can't take 'em too
Know my heart still has a suitcase, but I still can't take it through

I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone
I just need everyone and then some
I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone
I just need everyone and then some

I don't need anyone, I don't need anyone
I just need everyone and then some
Oh-mmm, oh-mmm, yeah

That feeling of empty and nothing

She really said it in the best way possible. I just completely adore her.

The worst part is that fish audience doesn't give a shit. They can't appreciate the performance going on

The screaming “I don’t need anyone” is really beautiful. It’s like she’s screaming it to herself over and over to convince herself that she’s not vulnerable and very strong. I do the same thing in my head when I feel like I’m about to break down, I love it so much, it makes me feel like I’m not the only one who’s trying so hard to not need anyone, because people just let you down.

Horror Stories

They let you down because u didn’t choose the right people....

İrem Sayın

Agree. I really felt when she screams "I don't need anyone!". It reminds me that loneliness is not a bad thing. It's the best song I've ever heard when I'm alone with myself and also I actually can't feel alone with this song!

Junior Marín

You just explained why there are screams in rock or metal music (even if you don’t like it) because for some the screams are emotional
