I just can't seem to write songs about peace and love. Yeah right, how do you get that?
This is what I am. I have periods of enormous self-destructive depression, where I go completely off my trolley and lose all sight of reality and reason.
If you suffer from depression, anything that makes you feel has to the most important thing in your life, because it's the only thing that can save you.
I'm a hopeless mother; a hopeless wife; I have to try harder. I'm just a pathetic case history, really.
Life is a process of working out what's not working for you and disentangling yourself from it and trying then not walk into the same thing again. Watching your patterns and correcting them if you can.

I'm quite repulsed by the diva type.
They said I was a married mother of two but the record sounded like an indie album and they didn't know how to market it! This country is incredibly sexist, as is the music and media industry.

I'm a crap guitarist and I find it really hard writing on my own.
I've seen many of my contemporaries become superstars, and the way fame and fortune starts to really affect the way they treat other people, and I think it's ugly.
Depression scares people off. It makes me laugh that it has that kind of effect.
I've always been an outsider; a displaced person.
