"Clair", by Gilbert O'Sullivan: would it be a song praising a "pedophile love"?
Before yesterday , I listened to "Clair", performed by Gilbert O'Sullivan.
I've known that, but I've never heard with a deep attention...
That one isn't from my era ( it belongs to 70's or less, I don't know).
I'd like that you pay attention in its lyrics and say what it means actually.
There is a conception "pedo" in its stuff, in my opinion.
Maybe I am wrong...
Read the lyrics below :
"Clair" - Gilbert O'Sullivan
Claire, the moment I met you, I swear
I felt as if something, somewhere
Had happened to me, which I couldn't see
And then, the moment I met you, again
I knew in my heart that we were friends
It had to be so, it couldn't be no
But try as hard as I might do, I don't know why
You get to me in a way I can't describe
Words mean so little when you look up and smile
I don't care what people say
To me you're more than a child
Claire, if ever a moment so rare
Was captured for all to compare
That moment is you in all that you do
But why in spite of our age difference do I cry
Each time I leave you I feel I could die
Nothing means more to me than hearing you say
"I'm going to marry you
Will you marry me, oh hurray"
Claire, I've told you before "Don't you dare"
"Get back into bed"
"Can't you see that it's late"
"No you can't have a drink"
"Oh, alright then, but wait just a minute"
While I, in an effort to babysit, catch up on my breath
What there is left of it
You can be murder at this hour of the day
But in the morning the sun will see my lifetime away
And watch the TV concert too:
How about it, guys?

Just by reading the lyrics (i did not watch the video) it does sound creepy and this song could definitely be written by a pedophile for all pedophiles to enjoy ... this song gave me the creeps when as a little kid I would hear it on the radio but I hadn't known what he was singing exactly. Creepy., I wonder why it ever got on the air waves at all? Maybe people didn't notice the lyrics ?? Hnmmm...makes me wonder about the whole thing..

i was 15 when the Claire song came out and even then at that age listing to it for me it gave me the impression that this guy being in love with this child Claire .i think if this song was a modern song of today people would automaticly think pedo song and maybe not even released

i do get a hint of pedophile love in there, especially when he talks about their "age difference" and when he says "i don't care what people say, to me you're more than a child"
it's kinda creepy o_o
