“I want you to know that I’m never gonna forget that you did, that you stood up for me when my hands were tied behind my back and I couldn’t say anything to fight back, you fought back, and you kept showing up, and you kept filling stadiums and now here we are.”
‘But if I was told all this, I still would have wanted this life; the idea that I get to write songs as a job is so good that it outweighs anything trivial or ridiculous or irritating.’

There are times when I’m caught up in everything and I have to say to myself, “Please feel good; please feel better; everything’s okay; you’re fine; things aren’t falling apart; take a second; get back to a place where you realize that you don’t actually have real problems.” That happens. You never know when those tables are gonna turn… For me, confidence is something that can come crashing down in one second.
“People like music when they’re in love, but they don’t need it as much. You need music when you’re missing someone or you’re pining for someone or you’re forgetting someone or you’re trying to process what just happened.”
I still love sparkles and grocery shopping and really old cats that are only nice to you half the time. I still love writing in my journal and wearing dresses all the time and staring at chandeliers.
