Throughout all of the changes that have happened in my life, one of the priorities I’ve had is to never change the way I write songs and the reasons I write songs. I write songs to help me understand life a little more. I write songs to get past things that cause me pain. And I write songs because sometimes life makes more sense to me when it’s being sung in a chorus, and when I can write it in a verse.
"In every one of my relationships, I’ve been good and fair. What happens after they take that for granted… is not my problem. Chances are if they’re being written about in a way they don’t like, it’s because they hurt me really badly. Telling a story only works if you have characters in it. I don’t think it’s mean. I think it’s mean to hurt someone in a relationship."

i think part of growing up is understanding song lyrics
Right down the middle of all my dreams…
No use defending words that you will never say...
I hope you learn to block out the words that will just devastate you. That’s been a tough lesson for me to learn.
