Clementine
Elliott Smith Lyrics


They're waking you up to close the bar
The street's wet you can tell by the sound of the cars
The bartender's singing clementine
While he's turning around the open sign

Dreadful sorry clementine
Though you're still her man
It seems a long time gone
Maybe the whole thing's wrong
What if she thinks so but just didn't say so?
You drank yourself into slo-mo
Made an angel in the snow
Anything to pass the time

And keep that song out of yr mind
Oh my darling
Oh my darling
Oh my darling clementine

Dreadful sorry clementine

They're waking you up to close the bar
The street's wet you can tell by the sound of the cars
The bartender's singing Clementine
While he's turning around the open sign
Dreadful sorry Clementine
Though you're still her man
It seems a long time gone
Maybe the whole thing's wrong
What if she thinks so but just didn't say so?
You drank yourself into slo-mo
Made an angel in the snow
Anything to pass the time
And keep that song out of yr mind
Oh my darling
Oh my darling
Oh my darling Clementine
Dreadful sorry Clementine



비정한세상

Clementine

They're waking you up to close the bar
가게를 닫을 시간이라며 사람들이 당신을 깨운다
The street's wet you can tell by the sound of the cars
거리는 젖어 있다 지나는 자동차 소리로 알 수 있다
The bartender's singing Clementine
바텐더는 노래 '클레멘타인'을 부르고 있다
While he's turning around the open sign
'개점' 표지판을 '폐점' 쪽으로 뒤집으면서
Dreadful sorry Clementine
지독하게 회한에 찬 클레멘타인을
Though you're still her man
당신은 여전히 그녀의 남자이지만
It seems a long time gone
그 사실은 너무도 오래된 기억 같다
Maybe the whole thing's wrong
아마도 전부 다 잘못되어버린 건지도 모른다
What if she thinks so but just didn't say so?
말만 안 했을 뿐이지 그녀도 혹시 그렇게 생각하고 있다면?
You drank yourself into slow-mo
당신은 슬로우 모션이 될 때까지 마셔댔다
Made an angel in the snow
눈 속에 드러누워 천사를 만들며
Anything to pass the time
무엇이든 시간 속에서 지나가도록
And keep that song out of your mind
그리고 당신의 마음속에서 그 노래를 지워 버리도록
Oh my darling,Clementine
오 마이 달링 클레멘타인
Dreadful sorry
지독하게 미안해
Clementine
클레멘타인

He understood song structure and was willing to take risks with it.  It's why I will forever love his music.

THE MASTER.Notice when he sings oh my darling and at the end, he's actually jumping into another key and making it work!Uncanny."anything to pass the time..and keep that song out of your mind.."

@Lucky Luke he put in a lot of work and thousands of hours in to his music, it's clear he had a vast understanding and it's a bit disrespectful to attribute everything to talent and "feeling"

Triscuit

This would be perfect as a soundtrack for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Mind drops

There's also a clementine in Westworld

bmogsy

When i watched it for the first time recently, I was shocked this song was not in the movie. It seems so fucking perfect

Daveed
