And so the line in the song is like, ‘don’t follow your head, follow your heart.’ But I think– And for me, that makes sense but I have friends that, I think, they’re wired a little bit differently and it makes them happier to be logical […]. So I don’t know that it necessarily makes sense for everyone to ‘don’t follow your head, follow your heart’ but for all of us, I think that was the way that it worked.”

the line in the song is ‘don’t follow your head, follow your heart’, but I have friends that.. that are wired a little bit differently- it makes them happier to be logical and to do what makes sense- so I don’t know that it necessarily makes sense for everyone- to not follow their head, but their heart- but for us, that’s what feels right
