"When I think about the things that cause me pain or the things that cause me trouble or frustration, it’s not people asking for my autograph; it’s people breaking my heart. That happens to you whether you’ve sold millions of records or whether you’re taking classes at college. You’re going to believe people when they say that they love you. I don’t leave out details when I write songs about that. I try to make my songs as personal as possible because, ultimately, my music started out as just trying to turn my diary entries into something that was a piece of music. And that has never changed.”
comes back to me, burning red…
Bring on all the pretenders, one day we will be remembered
"There's something really calming and soothing to me about having everything measured out and stirring it and pre-heating the oven and getting it all worked out. I really like baking and I really like cooking."
I’m perceived to be constantly going out with people, I’m just not. It’s like, she’s a hopeless romantic so she’s a serial monogamist, always dating. They look at me and think: ‘Oh she has to be in love or she’s not happy.’ It is possible for a woman to be romantic but also to be single and to be happy.
Happiness isn’t a constant. You get fleeting glimpses. You have to fight for those moments, but they make it all worth it.
