''All these emotions, everything that's said and all your experience, that's what inspires the first flicker of a song. It's hard being a human being. break down emotions into like 50 million categories. There's the missing-him kind of sadness. There's the frustrated-and-confused, don't-know-why-it-ended kind of sadness, there's the sadness tinged with anger ... There's the I know we can't be together but I miss you right now, there's the sadness tinged with anger, there's the sadness that has guilt with it, there's the sadness that has a little bit of hope that he'll come back. That's why emotions are so beautiful to write about because they all sound so different to me.''
