I am an over-achiever, and I want to be known for the good things in my life.
“I think everyone has a desire to be understood, and especially girls like me, and girls my age, we want to be understood in our relationships. We want to feel that someone we’re with knows us on a deeper level, and wants to know us on a deeper level. I think that we also want to be heard by society and really have our thoughts be conveyed.”
"When it comes to writing songs about my life, everyone in my life kinda knows that nobody has a safety pass like anybody can be factored into a verse or a chorus at some point. So if you’re gonna know me then it’s kind of like a given that you’re probably going to be written about at some point.”
I hear the preacher say, “speak now or forever hold your peace.” There’s the silence, there’s my last chance. I stand up with shaky hands, all eyes on me. Horrified looks from everyone in the room but I’m only looking at you.
