I write songs that are snapshops of my life. If I don't make them see the light, they end up bottled up inside me, dormant, like a threatening cancer. I need to let them out, set them free. It's a matter of life and death. That's why writing songs is part of my basic survival instincts. I would never say it's a skill, a talent, let alone a gift.
So, I have been cursed to write songs until the end of my days.
