It’s such an amazing part of my life, writing songs and then getting to play them all over the world to audiences who are singing every single lyric back to you —whether or not it’s an English speaking country.
Sitting on a bedroom floor crying is something that makes you feel really alone. If someone’s singing about that feeling, you feel bonded to that person. That’s the only way I can find an explanation for why 55,000 people would want to come see me sing.
‘Treacherous’ was about a person that I knew, from the minute I saw him, that it would end in fiery, burning wreckage. There’s something about that magnetic draw that doesn’t really let up. You walk towards it anyway.
