"It’s good to be young, but let’s not kid ourselves - it’s better to pass on through those years and come out the other side with our hearts still beating, having stared down demons and come back breathing."

and the last thing I saw before falling unconscious
was your right hand tracing a heart on my thigh
and I thought my god what an infantile gesture
and I thought my god what an indescribable high

"I am heavy in his arms, and I feel safe there, but I am lost, and I need constantly to be shoring up the wall that holds my emotions at bay, or I will feel something too great to contain."

And I started to say “fine,” and I meant to say “fine,” but I ended up saying that I felt my life was filled like a big jug to the brim with almost indescribable joy, so much that I hardly knew how to handle it. That was how I put it, what I said: “I feel like my life is filled,” and then all…

"This is a line I’ve repeated so many times throughout my career: I don’t think I am special. I think other people are not taking their job seriously. My job is songwriter. That’s what I’m supposed to be doing with my life, right? So how many months are there in a year? Is it really asking too much of me to write one a month? If I were a brick layer and I laid one brick a month, I’d be fired by the end of my first week on the job. So I think asking a songwriter to write two songs a month… at that point you should have 24 songs a year, and 10 of them should be good. I am productive, but I think everybody should be as productive as me if they really cherish the ability to do it."

"I love the people who laugh, because I know those are the ones who have been the most desperate. There comes a point in the pursuit of desperation where everything becomes funny."
