I have lot of goals, and one of them is to know when to stop. I love the sound of applause but I don’t want to become addicted to it in order to feel whole. It’s the creative part of music-making that I could never live without. Hopefully in your life you make graceful decisions, dignified career choices. There are lots of different directions to go in, and I’m not anywhere close to being out of ideas here. But as I grow older, I hope I can continue to rely on gut feelings and continue to be self-aware. Self-awareness is usually the first thing to go when people lose touch. So ideally I can keep my wits about me.
Sometimes I write about my own life. And sometimes I write about situations I see my friends going through. Sometimes I write about a scene I saw in a movie. I take inspiration from all different places.
"I had my songwriting heroes, and the fact that there’s a possibility that there will be kids who are little now, and they’re going to grow up and maybe list me as a potential role model or example of someone who wrote songs and showed them that they can do it too, that’s an amazing feeling."

Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through but I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you.~
I’m not concerned with people seeing me in a certain way. Some people see me as a kid, some people see me as an adult. But I’m seriously not going to complain how anybody sees me, as long as they see me.
