I have a good imagination. Look, I know what it feels like to have a broken heart. I know what it feels like to feel something for somebody. I'm just too weird to be in a relationship.
I know what it's like to have a broken heart. I know what it's like to feel pain: When my songs don't become hits, it breaks my heart. There are a million ways to break a heart. I can relate.
What makes a great song - you don't put it into words. You feel it. The perfect lyric. The perfect melody. It makes you feel something.
I'm somebody who finds adversity is almost as good as encouragement. It's almost like, you close the door, and I'll find ten ways to kick it in and go around it or dig under it or something.
A lot of people give up, but you can't stop me. If you close the door, I'll just jump out the window.
I don't just do power ballads. I have a lot of up-tempo stuff, too - like 'Can't Fight the Moonlight.'
I'm totally an East Coast person, energetic and sarcastic. I'm not a nice L.A. person.
I'm not like normal people. I'm no good at relationships. I draw drama to me - it's the Jew in me.
I was born loving music. It was always my friend.
You have to hone your craft, but you also have to be born with a certain amount of talent, and I never took the talent for granted - I've always worked really hard to be as good as I could be.
What keeps me interested is that I have to do it. It's like people wake up and they have to breathe; I have to write songs; I have to make music. That's like eating or breathing to me. It's that simple.
I've been in grocery stores, and if they're playing my music, I'll yell, 'Hey! I wrote that!' I've been next to cars and have done that!
I've been lucky, because people have done such great versions of my songs, and I've worked with the best singers ever, and I'm lucky that way.
I've never been in love. I know, it's weird.
When I turned 14, I became very obsessed with writing songs, and it took over my existence.
