1) The most important thing about this band is heart. That's where the songs come from: that's what I'd most want people to understand. What sounds good or looks good, that's nothing. The only worthwhile thing in art is seeing someone else's heart.
2) Life is about moments. And any given moment is completely worth that moment. Life isn't all about keeping, not in the way we normally think about it. My problem was being unable to hold onto things and then just dwelling on the loss. I started to realise: that's how it works. You should at least respect the fact that it was there. Cherish that. Then you still have something; it isn't gone or meaningless. It may not be the wholly joyous thing you wanted, but it is something. And it's accumulative. That's what makes your life rich. I'd felt like my life was a succession of experiences that didn't add up - just cards reshuffled in a deck, or cards on a table moved around, flip one up, flip it back over, not finding a match. But that accumulative aspect - that's growing up. You learn something. It wasn't cheap, it wasn't forgotten.
3) You begin with the things you love. You end up with the things you'll do. And one day you find yourself staring at a line on the ground, knowing that if you cross that line you'll never be the same again.
Вы начинаете с вещей, которые вы любите. Вы заканчиваете вещами, которые вы должны сделать. И однажды вы ловите себя на том, что узрели границу на земле, зная что, если вы пересечете эту границу вы уже никогда не будете тем же самым снова.
4) Sometimes the world seems like a big hole. You spend all your life shouting down it and all you hear are echoes of some idiot yelling nonsense down a hole.
Иногда мир походит на большую дыру. Вы тратите всю свою жизнь, пытаясь докричаться и все что вы слышите - это эхо какого-то идиота, вопящего ерунду на дне дыры.
5) Line as many small good things as you can in as long a row as you can make it and maybe eventually circumstance becomes habit and one day is suddenly and miraculously a little better than the day before it. Maybe.
6) My life isn't necessarily more important than anyone else's: I'm just better in talking about it.
7) All my songs are where I am.
8) Art is just an expression, it's something you do because you need to express yourself. You take what's going on on the inside and put it on the outside, that's just who you are. I just write songs because I feel a certain way. When you've got a bunch of them, that's an album. They're all different.
9) But what you realise after you've been in the business for a while is that people develop opinions about you that don't have anything to do with your music, they like or dislike you for a million reasons, they like or dislike you for your last record.
10) For me, songwriting is something like breathing: I just do it. But that doesn't mean you're fantastic.
11) In LA, and also on tour, I've been isolated for too long. On stage you're the man, but other than that, there's nothing I like about being on tour. Thousands of people that worship you are nothing, compared to one evening with your friends. But it's my job: I'm a grown-up man, and I go to work.
12) There just is exponentially more money in the movie business than in the music business. As a result there are more people involved in the creative process.
13) Truth is, you make albums, and some of those songs are hits, and some of the greatest hits albums have songs that weren't hits. You have a career, the reason why we're still around 10 years is that we do have successful songs.
14) When so much money is involved in these movies, someone somewhere is going to try to screw you.
15) I can write good songs. I can sing 'em, and I mean it, I mean it deeply, and I pour everything into that. Other than that, I suck.
