Clarity - Zedd feat. Foxes


The Experience: "Cause you are, the piece of me I wish I didn't need. If our love is tragedy, Why are you my remedy?" It seems Foxes wants to get out of this relationship, but she can’t. Her love won’t let her. The selfish pain was worth it every time. He’s her clarity, yet they refuse to make amends.  Why keep going if we all know it’s going to end in a crash...

The Video                    
Crashing cars, breaking glass, explosions, boyfriend flying through the air, wandering, falling in the desert: images that evoke the turbulent feelings of a relationship like this one. It ends with both driving happily together in the same car, leaving us all but convinced that things are resolved.


My Take                    
The song communicates the type of relationship many people find themselves in. There’s something very positive—the yearning for love at any cost. And yet neither of them are ready to face up to what it takes to really love the other or ask themselves if they’ve really found their life companion.


Ask Yourself                   
In your relationships are you willing to break out of your selfishness, face others with all your cards on the table, and build a real relationship?

LYRICS                                  

High dive into frozen waves

Where the past comes back to life (life-life-life)

Fight fear for the selfish pain

It was worth it every time (time-time-time)

Hold still right before we crash
'Cause we both know how this ends (ends-ends-ends)
A clock ticks 'till it breaks your glass
And I drown in you again (you again, you again)

'Cause you are, the piece of me
I wish, I didn't need
Chasing, relentlessly
Still fight, and I don't know why

If our love, is tragedy
Why are you my remedy?
If our love's, insanity
Why are you my clarity?

(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh, eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)
(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh, eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)

If our love, is tragedy
Why are you my remedy?
If our love's, insanity
Why are you my clarity?

Walk on through a red parade
And refuse to make amends
It cuts deep through our ground and makes
Us forget all common sense (sense-sense-sense)

Don't speak as I try to leave
'Cause we both know what we choose (choose-choose-choose)
If you pull, then I'll push too deep
And I'll fall right back to you (you-you-you)

'Cause you are, the piece of me
I wish, I didn't need
Chasing, relentlessly
Still fight, and I don't know why

If our love, is tragedy
Why are you my remedy?
If our love's, insanity
Why are you my clarity?

(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh, eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)

Why are you my clarity?
(clarity-clarity-clarity)
(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)

Why are you my remedy?
(remedy-remedy-remedy)
(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)

Why are you my clarity?
(clarity-clarity-clarity)
(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)

Why are you my remedy?
(remedy-remedy-remedy)
(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)

If our love, is tragedy
(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)
Why are you my remedy?

If our love's, insanity
(eh, eh, eh-eh-eh)
Why are you my clarity?
