"Table For Glasses" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
Sweep the dirty stairs,
The ones I waited on.
This is just for me,
I felt it watching her.

It happens too fast, to make sense of it,to make it last.
It happens too fast, to make sense of it, to make it last.

Where do you intend to go
With your dirty dress?
Lead my skeptic sight
To the table and the light.

It happened too fast, to make sense of it, to make it last.
It happened, too fast, to make sense of it, to make it last.

Not asking of me anything,
Saying nothing about what it means,
Without anybody telling me
How I should feel.

Lead my skeptic sight
To the table and the light.

    General CommentWhen you see the lyrics, they don't look like much, but with the simply crafted, but nonetheless beuatiful, melody and incredible harmony throughout, it lifts and 'illustrates' the lyric. It starts off seemingly sad but crescendos and then falls back down again, like a wave at the shore. Incredibly song, and my favorite on Clarity.

    General CommentThis song has always reminded me of the poem "Going Blind" by Rainer Maria Rilke. So beautiful.

    General CommentI'm not sure, but I think this song is about a relationship that he is unsure of what it means to him. i dont think i made any sense there, but i tried.

    General CommentI think this song is about the loss of a loved one, whether it be through death or a lost friendship/love and also how the narrator is dealing with it. it seems that he has found himself questioning God or the intentions of a God. "lead my skeptic sight to the table and the light."

    General CommentThis song makes no sense lyrically, but the music makes so much sense. It totally touches you and you just want to think everything will be alright forever and ever.Does that make sense? out

    General Commentto me he just got over a relationship, and she is running down dirty stairs, which dirtied her dress. and he says that relationships go by too fast for you to sit back and make sense of it all, of all that happens in a relationship. and he doesnt know how he should feel about all this, so he is asking to be shown the light, as to how it all has been.

    i love jew because i can relate to just about every song. if anyone has been in a good relationship, then had a hard breakup, every single song can be related to about something that happened, one way or another. this cd is truly great.
