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

By the time I recognize this moment
This moment will be gone
But I will bend the light pretending
That it somehow lingered on

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 wait to find
That 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 just drop my anchor down?
Was anything enough to kiss the ground
And say I'm here now

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 pay no mind
When it won't and it won't
Because it won't
And I will waste no time
Worried 'bout no rainy weather
And I will waste no time
Remaining in our lives together

    The song's meaning is not immediately clear; it could, with equal validity, be about coming to terms with a relationship, or with 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 about all of the problems and worries in your life.
