" Claire's Ninth "(201106)



Ben Fold <Lonely Avernu> 연작시리즈2
writing Nick Hornby

So she stands and waits
and waits at the school gate
They're late, they come, so dumb
In two cars when they agreed one
And it's gone wrong on her birthday
So they go to Joe's for pizza and ice cream
They sit and stare
and Claire just wants to be 9 and a half
Next year she'll tell them
she only wants world peace
But Claire, Claire baby
I wish you knew how this all got twisted
I wish you could see right inside us
In all of this stuff,
the best of us that we can't get out
What's the point of this

What's wrong with two birthdays
It's cool at school

Her friends, they all have two birthdays
Oh geez, he just asked the waitress
out on a date on her birthday

But Claire, Claire baby
I wish you knew how this all got twisted
I wish you could see right inside us
In all of this stuff,
the best of us that we can't get to
Here's the cheque
They pay with two cards
like they've never met
Goodbyes outside; it's cold in LA
Claire, Claire baby
I wish you knew how this all got twisted
I wish you could see right inside us
The best of us for most of us
Or what we were, you're all that's left
It used to be our birthday too

 

이혼한 부모 덕분에 어떤 날은 학교가 끝난 후
아버지와 저녁을 먹고 어떤 날은 어머니와 시간을 보낸다.
두 분 다 나를 사랑한다 말하지만
9살의 클레어의 기분은 어떨까?

내용을 모르고 보면 제 그림 치곤 좀 어두운듯한 느낌이지요.
최근 Ben folds <Lonely Avune> 가사를 토대로 그려봤습니다. ^^

수채화, 페인터 혼용 작업
