These hollow grounds seem like one massive grave to you
The resting place of everyone you once knew
You can't cry 'cause there's nothing left inside
At least nothing that you'll ever let them find

My Clementine... Don't say "Goodbye"
My Clementine... I can't take "Goodbye"

Lying so peaceful there
He can't help but stand and stare
And tell her to awake
He's shakin' her awake
Now trapped inside a cage, with only one escape
He sits and waits to die
So he can look her in the eye

My Clementine... Don't say "Goodbye"
My Clementine... I can't take "Goodbye"

I see you standing there at the pearly gates
To my surprise you've got a smile on your face
One more exchange of looks to say "I love you so"
Eventually I'll see that I have to let you go

My Clementine... Don't say "Goodbye"
My Clementine... Don't say "Goodbye"
My Clementine... I can't take "Goodbye"
I Can't take good, Can't take good, Can't take "Goodbye"
