Comments about this song
<strong>"Clarity"</strong> is a song by <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/John+Mayer" class="bbcode_artist">John Mayer</a>, sparsely arranged with piano and drums provided, in part, by <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/The+Roots" class="bbcode_artist">The Roots</a> drummer <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/%3Fuestlove" class="bbcode_artist">?uestlove</a>. It was the second single from Mayer's 2003 album <em><a title="John Mayer - Heavier Things" href="http://www.last.fm/music/John+Mayer/Heavier+Things" class="bbcode_album">Heavier Things</a></em>.
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, Mayer 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.
At the "Soundstage with Buddy Guy" concert, Mayer explained the song as one of the best he's done, in that it's the best in portraying his thoughts and feelings.
"Clarity" peaked at #13 on the "Billboard" Adult Top 40 chart.
