lyrics

She got a cloudy look about her, so she went on home
It's like we had her for a second and then she was gone
Clementine, I'll never tell you how many stars she's stolen from these eyes

She got a rainy day moving and for five weeks long
It's like the whole world was draining down a lavender song
Clementine, I'll never tell you how very hard she's holding lovely lies

She goes upside down for love
But the daylight calls her bluff
The girl is all tangled and tied up
And it's messing her up

She gets to singing sometimes in her room at dusk
It's romantic, the ways she ignores all the dust
Clementine, how can she make it eight more months without a phone call home

She gets to breathing real easy as she paints in the sand
Illuminated by Luna lighting over the land
Clementine, help me fake it, take my pants and dance with me lone, all lone

She goes upside down for love
But the daylight calls her bluff
The girl is all tangled and tied up
And the moonlights had enough

She goes right side up for love
Been real accustomed to this kinda stuff
The girl is all tangled and tied up
And it's messing me up

How dumb must I look
After all these years, after all these years
Clementine, I grow fonder of you still
How much gold they took
Wasted on those ears, wasted on those ears
Clementine, paint me naked if you will

How dumb must I look
Clementine, I'm free falling through my bed
How much gold they took
Clementine, keep these flowers in my head
