“Songwriters always reminded me of that kid at school who would go around with his guitar, like, ‘Yeah, songwritin’ man,’ looking wistful. That wasn’t me - those kinds of people put me off. In the early days, I’d write a bunch of lyrics and almost look at them as a sort of joke, to make the rest of the boys laugh.”
Writing songs for me is like waiting for deliveries. There’s always that thing… maybe it will just disappear? I could go and do gardening or something. To tell you the truth, I don’t have time to really worry about it.
