Clarity is a song by John Mayer, sparsely arranged with piano and drums provided, in part, by The Roots drummer Questlove. It was the second single from Mayer's 2003 album Heavier Things. The song's meaning is not immediately clear. Some interpretations have characterized the song as being about coming to terms with a relationship, while others have interpreted the song as being about a person's own self-perception. At his February 28, 2007, show at Madison Square Garden, John introduced "Clarity" as a song written about the first few seconds after waking up in the morning when you don't remember all of the problems and worries in your life.

Song Lyrics

I worry

I weigh three times my body

I worry

I throw my fear around

But this morning

There`s a calm I can`t explain

The rock candy`s melted, only diamonds now remain

ooh ooh ooh ooh

By the time I recognize this moment

This moment will be gone

But I will bend the light pretending

That it somehow lingered on

Well all ive gots

oooh oooh oooh oooh

And I will wait to find

If this will last forever

And I will wait to find

If this will last forever

And I will pay no mind

Well it won`t and it won`t because it can`t

It just can`t

(It`s not supposed to)

Was there a second of time I looked around?

Did I sail through or drop my anchor down?

Was anything enough to kiss the ground

And say I`m here now?

And she is here now

oooh oooh oooh oooh

oooh oooh oooh ooooooh...

So much wasted in the afternoon

So much sacred in the month of June

How bout you?

And I will wait to find

If this will last forever

And I will wait to find

That it won`t and it won`t and it won`t

And I will pay no mind

Worried bout no rainy weather

And I will waste no time

Remaining in our life together

haaa haaa haaa haaa haaa haaa haaaaaaa...
