Memorable Quotes:

I’ve always wanted people to ask questions about the music. Some songs you get. Some songs you may not. And I think that’s the beauty of art: to question and to ask, to understand the deeper meaning after two or three or four listenings. I appreciate that as a writer because sometimes the mystery, when it’s gone, is not as interesting. I love the mystery behind things.
