I've left Bethlehem, and I feel free. I've left the girl I was supposed to be, and some day I'll be born.
The monsters are in your own head
For me music is a vehicle to bring our pain to the surface, getting it back to that humble and tender spot where, with luck, it can lose its anger and become compassion again.
The flower has opened, has been in the sun and is unafraid. I'm taking more chances; I'm bold and proud.
Just watching my cats can make me happy.
I think it's important to find the little things in everyday life that make you happy.
Far away, to an infinite world I escape. I'm clear and calm, I'm unafraid. Sunless days, in my sheltered milkyway. In Saturn's rings I feel no pain.
I am not the person who is singing
I am the silent one inside. . . .
I am not my house, my car, my songs
They are only stops along my way. . . .
If not for music, I would probably be a very frustrated scientist. It's one way to answer the question, 'What is the meaning of life?' I feel music answers it better.

At the age of 15 months my daughter was diagnosed with very bad asthma, and essentially I put my career on hold for a good eight years.
I'm raising my daughter with her grandparents in the picture, and that feels good.
I wanted to be a cheerleader, like my sister was - all the most popular and beautiful girls are cheerleaders and I wanted that, and it demolished this vision of myself. That's when I found the piano, when music saved me; that's when I first attempted to write my own songs.
I hope and believe we are paving a better future for female artists to come
