I’ll be strong, I’ll be wrong, but life goes on
"I pour my heart and soul into every song. I take advantage of that when I play live, telling them where I wrote it, why I wrote it. I’m not just out there putting on a show.What they get in the music and on stage is me.”
i got lost in the sounds / i hear in my mind
all these voices
“There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”
I'm like cat here, a no-name slob. We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. We don't even belong to each other.
'Starlight' is a song that I wrote, actually, after seeing a picture of Ethel and Bobby Kennedy when they were seventeen. I saw this picture about a year and a half ago and I didn't know anything about, like, what they were doing or what was going on in the picture, but I just thought 'they look like they're having the best night'. And so I wrote this song about what the night might've been like. And I ended up meeting Ethel and going and playing for and she just loved it. It was such a fun moment when she was just in love with the song and so happy about it. And it's just this adorable picture that, to me, just brought forth all these potentials for how that night could have been.
