Clarity Lyrics

I dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life
Fight fear for the selfish pain it was worth it every time
Hold still right before we crash, ‘cause we both know how this ends
A clock ticks 'till it breaks your glass and I drown in...

    I can actually relate in this song - my interpretation about this is that two people met unexpectedly and now got into deeper level of intimacy finally leading to the point they can't let go of each other but because of the society or people that doesn't want to be together because of issues they can't be together(maybe age gap, religion or family affairs) She wants to let him go because she's weak, and it's the only way to end the suffering but she loves him so much as he loves her ( in her pov their love would end in him leaving her so she rather leave him too) but by the end of the day they still are together.. because the guy doesn't give up. Maybe it's toxic for everyone but sometimes it's society that's toxic.

    For me this song is about the toxic relationship between 2 people who aren’t bad people or terribly abusive to each other, who can see the greatness and potential of each other and what their relationship could be, but they are unhealed individuals from past traumas and it interferes with how they conduct themselves in the relationship. They are co-dependent. Perhaps if they were healthy and independent they could flourish in their relationship and reach the greatness they know they can have. They know they have to let each other go for the growth of themselves but can’t do it. It’s tragedy. It’s pain.

    That’s my experience with this song and my current gf. This perfectly sums up our relationship for 7 years. We finally let go. It was so hard, we both hurt for a long time but knew it had to happen. We came back together 2 1/2 years later different people; healed, independent, and and a little more matured. We are now engaged and living the greatness we seen in each other and what we could have. I consider myself very fortunate, a lot of people don’t get a second chance, and a lot of people don’t get a relationship like the one we have now.

    I agree with the affair interpretation. In fact, this song describes my affair perfectly.

    "Fight fear for the selfish pain, it was worth it every time
    Hold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this ends
    A clock ticks 'till it breaks your glass and I drown in you again"

    We fear getting caught and yet we continue. We know it's selfish and yet it's been worth it. We know it will end at some point but for now we keep coming back to each other.

    "'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need
    If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
    If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?"

    We both feel more fulfilled and content with life being together and yet, because it's an affair, we know it's wrong (i.e., a tragedy/insanity) and we wish we didn't need each other to be happy.

    "Don't speak as I try to leave 'cause we both know what we'll choose
    If you pull then I push too deep and I'll fall right back to you"

    I have tried to leave and end it many times even though neither of us wants to end it (i.e., we know we will choose to stay together). He's plead for me to stay and each time I've fallen back to him and we end up staying together.

    This song is about the insanity and madness of addiction. How as an addict we know that it isn't the answer but the pain pulls u back. It is the answer even though it hurts us more. In no way could walk on through a red parade and refuse to make amends have anything whatsoever to do with love. In fact there are many hidden words in the song that would tell you that It was about addiction. And this is actually how I explained why I was an addict for so long the song spoke to me. Sorry all you youngsters I think this is about unrequited love or soulmates or twin flames it's not read deeper than that it's about the insanity of addiction

    The song is about Twin Flames. Two people who share one soul. Spiritual magnetism pulls them together, but when they meet, fear pushes them apart. Until God intervenes and they are allowed to come together into a new reality.

    The relationship between two people is just a metaphor. He's really talking about being an alcoholic. Listen again!

    "Cuz you are the piece of me, I wish I didn't need, chasing relentlessly still fighting and I don't know why?,If our love is tragedy why are you my remedy, if our love is sanity why are you my clarity"

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    For me this song is about being in the closet in a conservative/homophobic community or family. I first thought of this with the

    “You are the piece of me I wish I didn’t need” meaning this person feels wrong about this part of them that wants to love who they love.

    “If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?” The love is tragedy as in it is forbidden. But it feels right of course because it’s love.

    Clarity it’s beautiful and romantic song officially written by Zedd.And there are many covers of this song. It’s the first time that I am hearing this song. Sincerely I really like this song. After hearing this music I understood that it’s a song of lovers all its about your people they are having affair.They I love is tragedy because at last they will choose not to leave their partner. They can’t stop seeing each other. Clarity or remedy that they are good for each other and make each other happy. I understood from this song is it’s about two people who fallen in love each other and they can’t be together.

    Two people that met along their journey, and they think they're for each other, but they aren't. They just met for a reason. Not for destiny and love.

    I think I could mean whatever you want it to be, it doesn’t have to be the orignal meaning. Like in some clarity memes it’s that a bullly(person A) makes fun of person B for having something that they don’t use or a really old toy, and that “toy” is one of the last or last things that a loved one gave to them perfore they passed away. Then the bully threw it off the building and person B just to get it

    I think I write that song and you can write in the book and writing about yourself and especially we wrote music on a book and poems and into that music and Ben want music to sing and songwriter, but we’re creating the music into a book and write about ourselves and then we can be like ourselves and sing our different ways, and sometimes when I booked travel all the world. But we’re great songwriters and creating book of music different songs but we’re having issues, and but Ben wanted to write first song ourselves to be who we are.

    I feel like this song describes a freshman and senior and high school. I know it sounds weird, but it makes sense to me. I am writing a story about it, and this song comes to mind. The first line in the second verse describes a red parade, and seniors usually graduate on red gowns. It's also hard for the two to be together because of the age gap and remarks from others, and I feel like this song describes repeatedly how the relationship has no future and will eventually end. That is my interpretation.

    My interpretation is that it is a couple who has had a lot of drama but in the future, it gets better
    "still fight and I don't know why" meaning that they had a fight and she/he is upset about what they said or did
    "if our love is tragedy why are you my remedy, if our love is insanity why are you my clarity" meaning that it got better but still needs more adjusting to the love they have for each other .

    It's amazing how all art is interpreted in different ways. This song came out when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. I had just left an abusive relationship. I went through the withdrawals of being without the only person in my life I had learned to rely on I struggled with the loss of a constant in my life. In some ways I picked out certain things from this song. Like when she said " you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need" to me it referred to knowing someone is not good for you but fighting the feeling of desperation. " If our love is tragedy why are you my remedy" if our loves insanity why are you my clarity" meaning our relationship might be our demise if we stay together and I'm seriously screwed in the head to be with you but you eventually show me your true colors and I see what love isn't. So in a way I just kind of associated with my experience at hand. It's almost like hearing what you want to hear. I do love this song still because it is a beautiful reminder of how far I've come from the dark place I was in ♥️
