I do tend to write more songs when I have a broken heart, though, because when you’re in love, you’re just so fascinated by the fact you’re in love that you don’t take the time to write down everything that you’re feeling.
"People cut other people down for entertainment, amusement, out of jealousy, because of something broken inside them, or for no reason at all. It’s just what they do, and you’re a target because you live your life loudly and boldly. You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical."
"People speculate all sorts of things about me, and about the band, that aren’t real life. Real life for me is waking up every day on a tour bus with my friends and playing a show that night. That’s what it is. There’s not some scheme that I have in the back of my head, like, "When am I going to break out of here and be a solo artist!?" [Laughs] I don’t want to be lonely. That’s what that sounds like to me — being a solo artist, traveling the way that we do as a band, by myself? That sounds miserable. So let them speculate. You can’t prove to anybody what you are, you just have to be it and keep being it because that’s the only way that anyone’s going to see you.
