Dear Clarity

from by Luke Young

lyrics

Are you someone I know or a stranger
'cause all the comings and goings take their toll
and if I told you I loved you
would I hear from you later
'cause I'm trying hard not to grow old

But I am not looking for your sympathy
just a few friendly words would do good for me
'cause I'm never quite sure just what to believe
and what's simply what I'm imagining
Dear clarity

And the newspapers tell me
the stories that I should read
but I can not quite follow them
I'm too busy daydreaming
and never fully listening
Hello doctor name my problems
we have all got them haven't we
So tell me your secret
and I promise I won't tell
But promises are fickle things
as you know well
and I never learned distrust but from you babe

Oh but I am not looking for your sympathy
just a few friendly words would do good for me
'cause I'm never quite sure just what to believe
and what's simply what I'm imagining
Oh

And I'm imagining everything
slower each time
but I'm not ready don't tell me
don't even try
It's quieter still in my mind there's a fire
and I've come to decide
that it might just be time
oh it might just be time

Oh but I am not looking for your sympathy
just a few friendly words would do good for me
'cause I'm never quite sure just what to believe
and what's simply what I'm imagining
Are you simply what I'm imaging
Dear clarity
