What it is about

Clarity: the art of being Clare.

Written for daughter Clare on her eighteenth birthday.

How it was written

Clare is heavily into musical theatre and so the song is written in the style of a musical.

It would make a lovely piece for a duet.

Not the usual

The song is in C and follows a fairly standard pattern but there is a bit of experimentation with the chord changes now and again. The verse, for example, has a C-Eb-G chord change instead of the usual C-F-G progression.

I can see clearly now
