Interesting facts
Lyric Poem
Sound devices and figurative language

Anton Zaslavski is a Russian-German producer and DJ who records under the name of Zedd. He broke through in the US in 2012 reaching #38 on the Billboard 200 with his debut album, Clarity, as well as co-producing Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj's hit single "Beauty and a Beat."
The album's title track found Zedd hooking up with a relatively unknown singer called Foxes. He explained to Digital Spy: "I really like working with unique and unknown artists as they usually bring something fresh to a song. For 'Clarity', I was looking for a certain type of singer as it's a very difficult song to sing. She nails it."
The collaboration came about after Zedd complimented Foxes on her track "Youth" over Skype. The Russian-German producer then offered the singer the chance to take on this EDM tune. "If someone had said to me, 'Sing this dance song,' I probably would have said no," Foxes admitted to Billboard magazine. "But I heard the song, and it was really emotional, and I felt like it was not too far from what I was about... I remember first listening to it and thinking, 'I'd be so stupid to not do this.'"

Clarity was one of the biggest hits in 2012
Clarity was released in October 2, 2012
This is a lyric poem because it expresses the thoughts and feelings of the singer.

Interpretation:
This song is about a girl who has a boyfriend that she wants to get rid of but she can't because as crazy as he makes her, and as much as he hurts her feelings, she loves him too much. She knows it because he is the one that tears her down but also makes her feel better when shes upset and straightens things out for her.'
